Walton’s Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer has celebrated World Refrigeration Day with all its employees this year.
Golam Murshed, the MD and CEO of Walton Hi-Tech Industries PLC, observed the day at its headquarters in Gazipur on Sunday.
In April 2018, world business leaders agreed to celebrate the World Refrigeration Day on June 26 every year. This year’s Refrigeration Day theme is “Cooling Matters.”
Walton CEO inaugurated the refrigeration day by releasing balloons at Walton headquarters and then visited various departments.
He visited different production units and observed the manufacturing process of IoT based upcoming models of premium category products and gave necessary directives in the context of current global challenges.
Speaking to the Walton members, Golam Murshed said,”We are passing through a tough time for Covid-19 pandemic and geo-political issues. The prices of raw-materials and freight costs have increased in the global market and the local currency is devalued against the US dollar. The recent flood in Sylhet division has caused heavy damages that have some direct impacts on the electronics market. But we are hopeful that we will be able to overcome these adverse situations soon”.
Regarding the World Refrigeration Day, Walton CEO said, “We have unavoidable responsibilities in the electronics sector as global warming is becoming a great concern day by day. While developing a product, we definitely prioritize environmental safety”.
Addressing Walton members, he said, “We should emphasize that our works and innovation can be useful for people even after 10 to 20 years. Our products should be sustainable.”
