Tanzifco Services (Pvt.) Ltd. opens its internationally-certified training centre in Sri Lanka

Tanzifco opens its international training centre in Colombo to orient and train skilled workers for the Gulf region.


17th June 2014, Colombo, Sri Lanka: The inauguration of Tanzifco’s internationally certified Training Centre takes place today, 17th June 2014, in Dutugemunu Street Dehiwala, Colombo. The Centre has been set-up with the objective of orienting, training and recruiting locally aspiring job seekers for the soft services industry in the Gulf. Apart from Sri Lanka, such Training Centres are also present in India and Nepal.

“We realize the huge potential work force that is present in the Sri Lankan market and this venture seeks to address their employment in the Middle East. The point of distinction for the Centre is that it is a British Institute of Cleaning Science (BICSc) certified training centre. We will recruit at the grass-root level and provide orientation and training to the workers at first. This would lead to a skilled set of prospective employees for foreign employment. We are highly grateful to the Sri Lankan Bureau of Foreign Employment and all our local associates for all their support,” says Mr. Mustapha Alayan, Chairman, Tanzifco Group.

The Training Centre operated by Tanzifco Services (Private) Limited is a part of the Tanzifco Group. Tanzifco was first established in Kuwait in 1963, a pioneer providing modern cleaning services. Over the years, witnessing unprecedented growth and with years of experience in the field, it has been ranked as a leading regional soft and hard services company in the Middle East. To its credit, Tanzifco provides services to a plethora of government and private sector clients including ministries, hospitality and healthcare facilities, retail outlets, malls and so on.

“In the last five decades, our operations span across Kuwait, United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Bahrain, Egypt, Oman and India as well. We value our most valuable assets – our employees and firmly believe in training and empowering them. In the growth and development of each worker, lies an organization’s real advancement. Further, this endeavour will allow for a direct interaction between the prospective employee and employer,” adds the Chairman.

The Training Centre will provide training under the guidance of a BICSc qualified Trainer and this will consist of a four-day course, including orientation, health and safety issues, BICSc basics and English terminology common to the cleaning industry. However, the focus will be on use of machinery, equipment, tools and cleaning products employed in common soft services assignments. The Centre is geared to handle a batch of up to twenty candidates at a time. Accommodation for candidates from areas located far out of Colombo, will also be provided at a dormitory operated by Tanzifco in close proximity.
