We commenced operations in 1922 in Sri Lanka. We have been a key player in the building materials and hardware sector since. We were also a major construction business in the early years.

In 1960, the Company commissioned a manufacturing plant for barbed wire, wire nails and wood screws, and subsequently entered into a joint venture with Kawasaki Steel and Marubeni Corporation - Japan to manufacture Galvanized Steel Roofing under the brand name "RIVER BRAND". Since then, the Company has grown into a leading and highly regarded roofing manufacturer in Sri Lanka, with a 1,200 strong dealership network across the country and a reputation for quality.
