Dayananda & Samarawickrama & Co. Chartered Accountants
The Dedigama Group, a family owned, and managed diversified conglomerate embarked on its journey into the business world with a handful of employees in the year 1950.
When we look back at the evolution of the Company since its inception, we can be pleased and proud of the numerous successes and achievements along the way. As we look to the future, we are confident that the strong foundation that has been laid will enable the organization to grow from strength to strength and further instill our core values and business experience into the products and services we offer.
Today the Dedigama Group employs a staff base of over 2000 professionals and are active in a wide range of diversified verticals including Financial services, Jewellery, Gem trade and exports, Hospitality, Real Estate and Plantations.
We have a clear objective of achieving the highest quality standards for our products and services, in order to ensure we achieve customer satisfaction, reliability and trust. The succesful growth and maintenance of our brand loyalty has always been a key part of our culture.
Our decision at a senior managerial level to focus on and build on our existing sector exposure, has been met with outstanding results.
Within financial services, we have continued to be the market leader in gold loans services in the country. Our branch network of well over 200 gold loans centres reflects the strength of our brand name and the recognition the company has won in the country.
Within gem trade and exports, a key part of our long-term strategy is to fulfill the aim of further elevating our global exposure through working with various international business partners. To bring this strategy into fruition we have entered into several joint venture relationships with Chinese companies within the gem trade and exports business, given the growing international demand for locally sourced precious stones.
The leisure sector of the Group primarily focuses on hotels with the inception of the Lavendish hotels portfolio in 2005. We continue to strategically invest in our present portfolio of hotels in terms of number of rooms and the general appearance and standards of each hotel. Our portfolio continues to expand with our recent acquisition of a 50-room star class hotel in Habarana that is currently undergoing redevelopment and room expansion.
Our business activities also span commercial real estate leasing and property development where we have observed substantial outreach and success. The real estate arm of the Dedigama Group through property development and leasing of commercial space has consistently strived to reinvigorate the Colombo and suburban built environment.
The estates and plantations division develops and manages Tea, Rubber and Coconut estates amongst other produce. The groups Cavendish Banana Plantation is managed in collaboration with a foreign partner that exports produce to Dubai and the US.
We at Dedigama Group ensure that we take significant care to consider the community and the environment through a wide range of corporate and social responsibility initiatives. From senior management to our most junior staff, the need to improve the quality of life and standard of living for our countries citizens has always been ingrained into our work culture.
I am proud to be a part of and lead a diligent, motivated and committed work force that have steered our organization into a reputed and resilient Srilankan brand name that has won the hearts of the entire country.
