LINDEL Industrial Estate

LINDEL Industrial Estate is Sri Lanka’s first private sector owned and operated industrial estate. Lanka Industrial Estates Ltd., is affectionately referred to as LINDEL, a subsidiary company of DFCC Bank PLC. It incorporated in 1992 to set up, operate and manage industrial estates in Sri Lanka. Setting up the LINDEL Industrial Estate at Sapugaskanda, upgrading and making use of the remaining infrastructure facilities of the defunct State Fertilizer Manufacturing Corporation was the pioneering project the company undertook.

LINDEL takes pride providing a superior set of infrastructure and allied services to all its clients. It aims for the continuous improvement of all its services to exceed the highest industry standards available anywhere in Sri Lanka. The company is a joint venture arrangement between the DFCC Bank PLC and the Government of Sri Lanka. It is an example of a successful public-private partnership. LINDEL Industrial Estate, which is 125 acres in extent, is fully developed and tenanted by several leading enterprises. This includes a number of Fortune 500 companies.
