The Browns Group is one of the most diversified entities in Sri Lanka. The Group traces its history back to James Brown, a young engineer and mechanic from London who arrived in Ceylon in 1872, seeking the adventure and fortunes of the orient. Starting off with a bicycle repair shop near Gleneagle in Hatton, he launched Brown & Company Limited in 1875 to manufacture and repair tea machinery. Over the next decade, Browns grew in size and scope, and was incorporated as a rupee company. In 1947, the company bought over the total equity capital of the Hatton Bank Limited and the Hatton Transport & Agency Co. Ltd. to become the Browns Group. The Group has since forged ahead, seeking opportunities in sunshine industries and establishing for itself a reputation of solidity and resilience.

Today, Brown & Company PLC has grown into a diversified conglomerate with operations in seven key industry sectors. Over 140 years in business has given Browns a deep understanding of the Sri Lankan consumer, enabling it to deliver top quality products and services.

A household name, across the island, Browns has a depth, diversity and strength in operations whilst working with several leading global brands.

Browns has grown exponentially into the active, sophisticated and valuable company it is today –gradually and unobtrusively, greatly expanding its portfolio and delivering excellence in products, services and value.
