Altria is the newest member of the Information Technology arm of the VS Group.
Our proud corporate heritage dates back to 1972 where we started as an engineering company focusing on providing laboratory equipment to the Sri Lankan market. Since then, we’ve successfully diversified into Hydro Power Generation, Turbine Manufacturing and Information Technology. We are a major player in the hydro power industry in the East African region since 2002. We also hold the unique distinction of being the only designated company that does clinical trials in Sri Lanka.
Setting up of VS Information Systems (Pvt) Ltd in 2009 with a focus on Systems Integration was a significant milestone for the VS Group. Today the company has evolved to be one of the lead players in the industry with over 250 staff members and preferred partnerships with principles such as HP, IBM, CITRIX, Oracle, Hitachi, Cisco, Polaris, VMware and Panduit delivering some of the largest ICT projects in the private and government sector in Sri Lanka, Maldives and Philippines.
With the success of VSIS, the group made further inroads in to the sector in 2011 with the acquisition of a local arm of a bespoke software development operation focusing on the Japanese market, Inova IT. Armed with a team of competent and highly qualified group of local graduates, the Company has provided a wide spectrum of solutions to some of the global giants including NTT, Data, Natwest, IBM and salesforce.com and are now focusing on developing bespoke software for the local market.
Having made significant strides in the local IT market we clearly saw an opportunity to further cater to the enterprise IT customer in the growing area of Data Analytics and ERP implementation and support. Thus Altria was born.
We are passionate in everything we do. Formation of Altria was also based on our passion to make a difference. When we engage with a customer we are totally committed for their success. We know there is no substitute for passion.
We challenge the ‘accepted” way of doing things regularly. Whether it is solving a business problem at a customer of ours or attacking social issues, we believe it is important to be innovative in our thinking.
We’ve proven our selves over and over again in terms of what we do. However we firmly believe in “Sharpening the saw”. We crave for new knowledge. We believe this is the only way we can deliver value and be competitive in the market.
In a commercially driven era we believe in honesty in everything we do. We experienced first hand how service providers tinker with the absolute truth. We had our moments where we were frustrated as customers.
We believe this is the true meaning of our existence. We believe in the concept of partnership to the core. Partnerships do not happen in flash. We believe in playing for the longer term. We believe in creating value in things we do.
Inspired by the true meaning of its’ name, the company focuses on two core aspects
