Tissa Jinasena Group

"Enlightening Lives to Sustain the World "

In 1905 a visionary Sri Lankan named Colamba-patabendige Jinasena (first Sri Lankan Engineer to obtain British Professional Charter) started the first Sri Lankan engineering company producing equipment for the agricultural development of then Ceylon. C. Jinasena steered his enterprise through tough times with success and handed it over to his son Tissaweera Siriwardana (an engineer by profession) who further developed the establishment making "Jinasena" a house hold name in Sri Lanka. The four sons of the T.S. Jinasena, Nihal, Rohan, Ranjith and Tissa continued the journey making the Jinasena group the largest single foreign currency earner for Sri Lanka with world class products and providing direct employment for more than 8000 Sri Lankans.
