Business News from Sri Lanka: Since the start of operations, access has become one of the major conglomerates in Sri Lanka as the sole agent for a host of Japanese businesses in the country back in 1989.
Over the previous 30 years, the firm has continuously grown in ability and diversified into many fields, substantially contributing to the country’s economy’s development. Access currently works in the areas of Engineering, Telecommunications, Water, Healthcare, Education, Property Development, Automotive, Power and Renewable Energy with an staff base of approximately 6000. By taking on projects in the Maldives, Africa and the Middle East, the firm has also extended its global footprint.
“Access started activities in 1989 with a team of 07 members, a license to sell Konika photocopying machines, and a willingness to actively contribute to the development of the country’s economy. Over the years, we have confronted and overcome many difficulties, only to emerge stronger and more determined to accomplish our objectives and make a positive contribution to our nation’s growth. Our greatest asset was our individuals throughout all of this.
I am proud to say that we have over 500 staff who have been with us for over 15 years. “Access has celebrated many milestones throughout its history, with the most important being the development and operation of two company towers in the core of Colombo, investing in Ninewells Hospital, the country’s leading private women’s and children’s medical center.
More lately, the firm has become involved in the real estate industry and is presently building 1,500 flats across the island.
