“Innovative Solutions, Sustainable Growth: Our Journey of Excellence”


Welcome to Britex Holdings (Private) Limited, a vibrant and forward-thinking entity that has been a pioneering force in the Sri Lankan business landscape for over five decades. Our journey commenced in 1964, ignited by the ambitious vision of a group of Sri Lankan entrepreneurs and professionals. Their audacious dream was to revolutionize an industry historically dominated by multinational corporations, establishing a formidable Sri Lankan presence that would be defined by innovation, uncompromising quality, and a resolute commitment to sustainability.

Our Evolution: From IAC to Britex Holdings

In August 2021, we embarked on a transformative journey, rebranding ourselves from Industrial Asphalts (Ceylon) Plc (IAC) to Britex Holdings. This strategic shift marked a significant milestone in our growth story.

Today, as Britex Holdings, we are geared towards making a profound impact across multiple sectors while retaining the invaluable expertise we have accumulated during our 50+ years in the Sri Lankan bituminous products industry.
