Chemical Industries (Colombo) Limited (initially a part of Imperial Chemical Industries-UK), was incorporated in 1964 as a supplier of high-quality chemical products for the local market. We are now known as CIC Holdings PLC, one of Sri Lanka’s leading conglomerates, and over the years have become a household name through our many ventures.
We were at the beginning a company that manufactured locally produced paints and pipes used for agriculture. Our business expansions have taken us into several key industries in the country. While a large part of these are in the Agri Produce and Crop Solutions sectors, we also have a presence in the Health & Personal Care, Livestock Solutions and Industrial Solution sectors.
Our success owes itself to our drive to innovate and this has enabled us to re-align and re-position ourselves in sectors that show high growth. This has led us to venture into export markets, being a supplier of Agri Produce such as rice, bananas, and fresh vegetables and some Industrial and Crop solution products.
