The company is founded by citizens of Sri Lanka and Switzerland who have the bond of friendship for many decades and is aiming to create a sustainable organization for the next generation of their families whom they have included in the development and expansion of the organization into the next decades.

All understand the markets they are dealing in and are not mere by-passers. Their aim is to create a sustainable platform for transfer of knowhow, education, goods and services for the benefit of Sri Lanka and Switzerland but not restricting itself to those countries.

Sri Lanka and Switzerland have a lot in common from innovation, hospitality, exports and a multicultural society. Sri Lanka has an ideal location in and close to the fastest growing markets in Asia and Switzerland has the same in Europe.

The organization does not aim to create short term profits but a sustainable future for the benefit of all stakeholders. Cooperation is mainly but not only sought with the SME segment who believes in long term development and loyalty.

We aim to support the countries we operate in by transferring knowhow and our business knowledge and help to improve the key industries of the countries.

To be one of the leading Companies in Sri Lanka to represent exclusive global brand of products.
