Our Founder

Soon after independence in 1948, our founder late U W Sumathipala, a young man at that time, entered the world of business. His first experience was in the construction industry, which he soon mastered and became very successful. He later went into backward integration and expanded into supplies and logistics. In no time his sharp business acumen and visionary leadership brought him further success. Following a period of phenomenal growth and after marriage, in 1956, he ventured into another new area of business: Turf Accounting , and here too he made his indelible mark, soon becoming an icon in that industry

Following these successes in the 70's , he further diversified into an area of business he was passionately interested in: Films and Film production. He produced his first film "Unnath Dahai Malath Dahai" and the premier was screened at Asoka cinema hall in Grandpas on 16th July 1976. It was the 338th film of the Sinhala film industry. This was a commercially successful production. He was also the owner of Asoka cinema hall

The next film 'Ahasin Polowata' received international acclaim at the 3rd International Film Festival in Cairo held from 26th September to 4th October 1978. This film which was directed by nonpareil Dr Lester James Peiris, won the presitious Akanathon international award for the best film from a third world country. This achievement was a milestone in a annals of the Sinhala cinema. It was officially released in our local film circuit on 15th December 1978

Following the success of 'Ahasin Polowata' was the next movie - 'Ganga Addara' directed by Mrs Sumithra Peiris and produced jointly by late U W Sumathipala and his wife Dr (Mrs) Milina Sumathipala. Just like its predecessor, this film also bagged prestigious awards, including Presidential and Sarasavi film awards. It also received the highest number of awards in that year

The late U W Sumathipala whose name was synonymous with the business world and the world of Arts as a producer of world-class movies, was also a keen sportsman. He was largely responsible for grooming and producing a World Champion in Billiards and Snooker, the legendary M J M Lafir, and always gave back to life what life had bestowed upon him
