From a simple broking company founded in 1904, Bartleets has grown into a conglomerate with a multiplicity of interests closely interwoven with Sri Lanka’s economy.
Expertise with experience
Our journey – beset by the stops and checks of political uncertainty and fluctuating fortunes - has not been an easy one; but then Bartleets has always has the knack of transforming itself.
Our other distinguishing characteristic is our spirit of enterprise, which demonstrably took advantage of the new open economy introduced in Sri Lanka in the 1970s; a time when we pioneered several new and widely divergent fields.
Stability with strength
Our culture of integrity and reliability is the very core of our success, for it helps us to build and maintain strong relationships with our customers. Every single one of us at Bartleets strives also to deliver the exceptionality which is another of our core values.
Trust with time
The remarkably diverse activities of our Group, over the past twenty five years and the proliferation of our operations, island-wide, have impacted on the economic life of our country’s people. So many Sri Lankans have faith in us and confidence in our products … and that trust is something we prize.
I believe that today, success accrues to organizations which, sensitive to change, seize the opportunities and accept the challenges presented by change. I predict that Bartleets will continue to metamorphose and grow in expertise, strength and trust, for a long time to come.
