Our products include globally renowned brands which are not available anywhere else in Sri Lanka like the recently introduced Google glasses. We are also known for the most advanced hearing institute in Asia which is on par or sometimes beyond those in Western countries. At this important milestone in our company’s history we look forward to extending our services to more and more customers as we grow our network of outlets.”
