In April, 2018, IFE Elevator won the bid of AVIC Astoria Apartment project, which is located at Colombo, Sri Lanka. The total construction area is approximately 143,000 square meters, and it consists of two 42-story towers, one 33-story tower, one 18-story tower, and 4-story annex, mainly for residential, commercial and garage. The IFE Elevators will give solution with 9 units high speed elevators, 1 freight elevator, 2 escalators and 8 medium speed elevators for the ASTORIA project.

The Astoria project manager said: “IFE Elevators has extensive experience in the global market. After the project was launched, Mr. Sun, the branch general manager of IFE Sri Lanka, actively followed up on the progress of our project and discussed it with the on-site engineers and proposed professional advice and solution to us close to the Lanka market. We examined the IFE's local elevator project, and the customer evaluation was very high. The Sri Lanka National Defence University hospital project was highly praised by the President of Sri Lanka and fully demonstrated the strength of IFE Elevators.”
Sri Lanka is the best investment destination in South Asia. In the 1970s, it was the target of Singapore’s catch-up. After nearly 30 years civil war, Sri Lanka revive its vigor and vitality. The "One Belt and One Road" initiative along with China will become an important opportunity for the development of Sri Lanka. Main cities such as Colombo and Hambantota are expected to develop into international metropolis cities. IFE Elevators positively responds to the national and government calls to provide professional elevator solutions and urban building delivery services for urban construction in Sri Lanka.
