JAT Holdings founded by Aelian Gunawardene in 1993 with the primary objective of providing total solutions in timber coatings to the Sri Lankan furniture industry.

Wood coatings marketed by JAT Holdings are essentially derived out of three types of lacquer bases: NC-nitro cellular, PU-polyurethane and WB-water based – from which customers may select lacquers specifically designed for either ‘interior’ or ‘exterior’ use.

Consequently, the company expanded its vision towards becoming the leading comprehensive solutions provider for all surface coatings and constructional needs, and have now incorporated decorative domestic and industrial emulsion elastomeric and enamel paints, plasters, anticorrosive paints, floor paints, metal fillers, furniture hardware fittings amd accessories to its already impressive product range.

With a view to achieving international standards and to be the foremost in this field, JAT formed subsidiaries and steadily joined hands with world leaders in this field and some of the fastest growing companies involved in the manufacturing and distribution of retail and industrial products and expanded its operations into other countries in the subcontinent.

JAT Holdings has reached its present position of being the undisputed leader in the wood coatings industry in Sri Lanka, Maldives and Bangladesh due to a well-stocked comprehensive range of products complemented by a dynamic sales team which has been trained and driven to provide excellent technical support services. Vigilant monitoring and controlling systems to ensure the application of the strictest quality control standards in keeping with ISO regulations have enabled JAT to expand its list of satisfied customers and to be a dynamic company of international repute.
