Access has become one of Sri Lanka’s leading conglomerates since beginning operations as the sole agent for a host of Japanese companies in the country back in 1989.

The company has steadily grown in capacity and diversified into many areas over the past 30 years, contributing significantly to the growth of the country’s economy. Today, with an employee base of approximately 6000, Access operates in the fields of Engineering, Telecommunications, Water, Healthcare, Education, Property Development, Automotive, Power and Renewable Energy. The company has also expanded its global footprint by taking on projects in the Maldives, Africa and the Middle East.

Sumal Perera, Chairman, Access Group, “Access began operations in 1989 with a 07member team, a license to sell Konika photocopy machines, and a desire to actively contribute to the growth of the country’s economy. We have faced and overcome many challenges over the years, only to emerge stronger and more determined to achieve our goals and contribute positively to the development of our nation. Throughout all this, our biggest asset has been our people. I am proud to say that we have over 500 employees that have been with us for over 15 years.”

Access has celebrated many milestones throughout its history, with the most significant being development and operating two business towers in the heart of Colombo, investing in Ninewells hospital which is the country’s leading private medical facility for women and children.

The company has more recently ventured into the Real Estate sector and is currently in the process of constructing 1500 apartments across the island.
