About us

The pioneer manufacturer of dry cell batteries in Sri Lanka, the company was incorporated as Elephant Lite Corporation Ltd, a Public Limited liability Company in 1956. In 1982, it was quoted on the Colombo Stock Exchange. In August 2005, the name of the Company was changed to Laxapana Batteries Limited and subsequently re-registered as Laxapana Batteries PLC.
