With the boom of Sri Lanka’s construction industry, planners and architects have had the tough task of retrieving old town plans and infrastructure, and archiving new blueprints that are being developed.
Technology available in Sri Lanka to support this industry on the other hand has failed to keep pace to meeting the demands.
“It is timely that Metropolitan introduced this archiving and large format copying machines because for the construction and design sector to grow they need to have the essential technology and machinery available for support,” said Deputy Minister of Construction, Engineering Services and Common Amenities, Lasantha Alagiyawanne speaking at the launch of the ROWE large format copying and archiving machine in Sri Lanka.
This machine is especially made to meet the needs of the construction industry. It can scan large blueprints, clear any marks, folds and patches on dated maps and designs, archive any amount of files, catalogue files for easy reference and create editable soft copies of maps and architectural sketches for convenient editing and updating.
The robust ‘Made in Germany’ A0 Wide Format ROWE machine fills this much-felt void in the industry making it one of the most sought after pieces of equipment among top global town planners and designers.
“The ROWE machine copies formats as large as A0 unlike existing office copiers. Most copiers cannot copy anything larger than the A3 size,” said Head of Sales and Marketing at Metropolitan Office Pvt Ltd., Ali Asgar Roshanali.  Metropolitan, the pioneer workplace solutions provider with 52 years of service excellence is the authorised distributors of the ROWE wide format copier/scanner in Sri Lanka. Vastly popular abroad and a fixture in leading corporations the world over, the launch of ROWE in Sri Lanka will serve to enhance technical know-how and in turn drive greater productivity and efficiency, supporting businesses ably.
