” WE HAVE ALWAYS CHOSEN THE ROAD LESS TRAVELLED AND IN MY VIEW, THIS PERIOD HAS BEEN THE MOST STEEP, BUMPY AND WINDY STRETCH IN OUR CONTEMPORARY HISTORY.”

At DIMO we are proud to mark 80 years of business excellence by renewing our pledge to deliver outstanding products and services while ensuring that our business model will generate sustainable value for the future. We believe in continuous improvement, constantly pushing our limits and relentlessly pursuing perfection in everything we choose to do.
The company has always been aware of the need to stay relevant and be nimble in a fast- changing, competitive world. That’s why we have been constantly evolving, re-engineering our processes, restructuring our businesses and redesigning our technologies; looking at how we think, what we do and how we affect the people and communities we partner.
80 years ago our founders were just starting out, taking the bold step of launching their own enterprise with few resources and less capital in hand. Yet their courage, perseverance and determination to succeed laid the foundations for what is now one of Sri Lanka’s best known companies; one that transforms the lives of its many stakeholders through its global reach and local presence– bringing the best of the world to Sri Lankans, everywhere.
Looking back, we are very proud of what we have achieved in 80 years of business. Looking around us, we know that while we have a strong presence in the business sectors we operate, there remain many opportunities for growth and expansion yet to be discovered. And in looking to the future, we will follow the example of the four young men who started this company, who innovated, pioneered and blazed the trail that we now follow.
We too shall be daring and adventurous in spirit; always willing to take the road less travelled in our quest to find more opportunities to create sustainable value to all our shareholders and other stakeholders we serve.
