The company was founded by the Late Mr. W. Albi Perera who is considered a Pioneer in the quarrying industry in Sri Lanka. Like many other pioneering entrepreneurs of his era and generation the late Mr. Perera was dedicated and committed to creating an organization that would outlive him and reach the pinnacle in its sphere of Business activity. His focus and emphasis on providing very high quality, competitively priced Aggregate products in the correct quantities has guided the ‘Vision’ and ‘Mission’ of the company over the years.

The Late Mr. Perera provided hands-on leadership to the company for the first three decades of its existence, and in the mid 1970’s his two sons Mr. W. Ariyarathne Perera and Mr. W. Karunarathne Perera followed in the footsteps of their illustrious father along with their brother-in–law Mr. Rathnakumara, infusing young blood and contemporary thinking and techniques into the organization.

 

This entrepreneurial family’s commitment to the organization, its employees, customers and the industry is further illustrated by the entry of yet another generation of young professionals comprising of Mr. Abeetha Perera, Mr. Rukshan Perera and Mr. Susantha Mahindasena who will re-engineer, restructure and further modernize the organization to meet current and future challenges and demands in a rapidly changing environment. The involvement and commitment of a ‘third generation’ is a factor that should certainly boost the confidence of customers, employees and all who deals with the organization.
