According to the folktales among the people in Sri Lanka there is a tree in heaven called “Kapruka” which gives anything that we wish. Coconut tree has an appellation of “Kapruka” because it can give food, firewood, roofing materials, alcohol, treacle and lot of fibre based products. Therefore we as a leading manufacturer in coco peat and fibre products, there is nothing as wastes, except water that is used to ferment the husks to separate the fibre.

Mr.WimalHerath who is the founder of the family business based on coconut was inherited with a passion for business due to his business minded mother. Since he was brought up in a family business environment, his passion was engaging in business. This strong will was thoroughly grasped by his children. That is evident through the chain of family businesses, Wayamba Desiccated Coconut & Oil Mills (PVT) Ltd., “Wayamba Oil Stores” and “Metro Marketing”

Mr.Wimal Herath started his career as a businessman by opening a fibre factory “Daraluwafibre mills in Kelanimulla in the year 1963. With the steady growth of the business he started the second fibre factory called “SandasiriFibre Mills”.In order to facilitate the efficient delivery of the fibre he started his own transport company under the nameof “WimalHerath& brothers. Then he started to produce fibre ropes using machinery to meet the market demand.It was the initial step to produce twine thread for the foreign market.

As coconut is the basic raw material he started planting the coconut. It paved the way to produce various coconut based products. In 1991 after the purchasing of the Pannala Oil Mills (PVT) Ltd.,Mr.Wimal’s eldest son, Mr.Nilantha who was a professional business planner, became the managing director of the Pannala Oil Mills at a very young age of 21.

Coconut oil producers in Sri Lanka faced great difficulties from 1990 to 1997 due to importing of palm oil. Therefore as a diversification of business Mr.Nilantha started a company called“Metro Marketing” which was a company that deliver machinery for construction.
