Adam Investments Ltd. was incorporated in 2011 by Chairman Deshabandhu Dr. Ali Asger Shabbir Gulamhusein, to focus on key growth industries that play a pivotal role in the country’s economy. Adam Apparels (Pvt) Ltd., a major company that functions under Adam Investments, is a premier manufacturer and exporter of garments for leading global fashion labels. For three decades this company has contributed to the largest export earning industry in the island, which despite local and international challenges, has continued to grow steadily year on year.
On Monday 24 June, 2013 Adam Apparels launched its state of the art design centre that is equipped to cater to international market standards.

We are already on the right track to revolutionise the denim aspect of the fabric industry in Sri Lanka which has not been tapped into on a full scale as yet. We are already negotiating deals with key clients from the UK and USA who are very open to our presentations. We have the ability to design any item to the specification of the buyer, with only an artwork of their requirement. Currently we specialise in ladies and kids wear, catering to the latest fashion trends from around the world.”
