Giving an additional boost to the growing local economy, and creating greater access to global technology and service, Metropolitan appointed United Book Center in Batticaloa as the authorized distributor for the region, which includes Valachchenai, Chenkaladi, Eravur, Batticaloa, Kathankudy and Kalavachchikudi.

United Book Center, has been in the stationery business for more than five decades, and will be expanding their product portfolio to include laptops, printers, scanners, copiers, air-conditioners, generators among others.

"We are very happy to partner with Metropolitan and provide this larges range of equipment to the Batticaloa district people who are building their lives and livelihoods after the war," said Mr.Selvarajah, owner of United Book Center in Batticaloa.

With hardly any showrooms where all products for a small office to large office can be bought from a single location available in Batticaloa, the people have welcomed this move by Metropolitan to appoint a dedicated single showroom and distributor with the complete engineering, air-conditioning, computing and imaging range along with their consumables.

Speaking at this milestone, Chief Minister of Batticaloa, Hon. Nazeer Ahamed (Eng) said that he was very happy that a leading company from Colombo decided to expand their services to Batticaloa through the local business community as it would enhance opportunities and help develop the local economy of the district.

"It is a pleasure to partner with a well respected and strong company such as United Book Center. To enhance the customer experience and service, we have gone a step further by having a dedicated technical and service team in Batticaloa to support consumers," said Mr.Ivor Maharoof, Managing Director at Metropolitan.
