Commenting on the milestone reached by the company founded by his great grandfather, W.D. Fernando, Chairman of United Tractor & Equipment (Pvt) Limited, Prasan Fernando said, “As a company with a 75-year-old history, UTE represents the resilience of the nation that reaches 75 years since independence, navigating many setbacks with Sri Lanka and achieving a multitude of victories. Over the years, we have established market leadership across numerous industries we serve.

“We have forged partnerships with many other world leading brands, and currently host an impressive portfolio of international market leaders. We continue to stand by our customers, enjoying deep seated relationships with them, living true to our mission; ‘The Journey Continues...Long After the Sale.”

Driven by an entrepreneurial spirit, UTE is still family-owned and places relationships at the heart of its business culture.
