Starting with an investment of Rs. 8.5 million in the beginning of the 1980s, LTL Holdings has become the premier engineering company in Sri Lanka, enjoying international recognition and is worth approximately Rs. 5, 000 million today.

Formally known as Lanka Transformers Group of Companies, LTL Holdings has a very strong commitment to excellence which is showcased in their superior products. Catering to over 20 countries globally it is this attention to detail and quality that has allowed the company to become a major player in the international engineering arena. Over 50% of our products are exported, after meeting the entire domestic requirements.

We are renowned as Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contractors of major power projects. Further we have a well-earned reputation as the trusted brand for Grid Substations and Power Generating Stations.

Such is the growth of the company that we have also pioneered Independent Power Production (IPP). We have built, maintain and operate three major thermal power plants. We have also in the recent past built and operated a number of emergency power plants to help meet the power shortages in the national system. This was done at the request of the State Power Utility.
