Changing the landscape of Manufacturing

Equipment you can count on. People you can trust.

Bringing global brands to the local consumer has been the cornerstone of CMG since day one. Confident in the knowledge that Sri Lankans could manufacture on par with global brands, CMG set out to create a network of partners from around the world - bringing the necessary know-how to Sri Lanka and setting up local manufacturing plants. We've helped build your house, whether it's with S-lon plumbing, PE Plus water tanks, Kevilton electronics or Kansai Paints on your walls. If you sit down for a cup of tea, we're very much a part of the experience - from the pure Ceylon tea via AF Jones to the Tuffline plastic sleeve packaging your biscuits were bought in. From perfume to sanitary napkins via ICL brands, to herbal remedies via Nivaran, pet food via MChems, CMG has been a part of bringing it all to your doorstep.
