Chennai: Ashok Leyland Ltd, India’s second largest bus and truck maker, has won an order from the Sri Lanka government to supply 2,200 buses.

Sri Lanka is aiming to modernize its fleet and significantly improve the country’s public transport network. This will be one of the largest purchases made by the Sri Lankan Transport Board, said a company press release.

The Chennai-based company will supply the buses within the next six months. With this order, Ashok Leyland reinforces its position as the market leader in Sri Lanka and as an important stakeholder in Sri Lankan transport.

“This is a huge order especially at a time when the domestic market is just about to bounce back. This order reaffirms our strategy to substantially enhance our sales outside India,” said Vinod K. Dasari, managing director the company.
