President’s Message

“We are made wise not by the recollection of our past, but by the responsibility to our future”. – George Bernard Shaw

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I am proud and privileged to stand before you as the president of this esteemed Association which has a history of 56 years and is represented by the major printers and print suppliers in Sri Lanka. The task ahead is far stretched; I have been ordained with the incredible responsibility of living up to the expectations and successes of our past presidents.

I would like to start by telling you how much I appreciate each member of our Executive Committee by recognizing the fact that we would not be here today without the contributions made by each and every one of our past EXCO that functioned under the diligent leadership of Mohan. I would like to express my sincere thanks to our outgoing president Mohan, who provided the association with a good, sound leadership and will be missed. However, it’s my pleasure to say that he will continue his work with the association as a member of the much honored Past President’s Council.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank my sponsor, our past president Mr. Keerthi for inviting me to join the Sri Lanka Association of Printers. Also sincere thanks to Dinesh, Dharani and Mohan for encouraging and empowering me to take this position today.

Light the path for the printing/packaging/graphic media industry in Sri Lanka while helping Sri Lankan printers to be professionals in the global village by providing them with education and awareness of the latest technologies in the field.

Sri Lanka Print Media Academy


The long felt dream of the Sri Lanka Association of Printers is now a reality; after the successful venture into purchasing a plot of land for its’ own secretariat, we have included the facet of training for the industry by incorporating a new entity, the Sri Lanka Print Media Academy.

Launched with financial pledges in the form of Platinum, Gold, Silver and ordinary member subscription from member companies, the building plans are currently being prepared for construction in three phases based on priority.

Once fully commissioned, the facility will house the permanent secretariat of the Sri Lanka Association of Printers along with the Sri Lanka Print Media Academy (SLPMA).

The SLPMA is specially designed to upgrade knowledge and competence via advanced professional programs for print operatives already in the industry as well as provide basic industry training for those entering the noble profession.

Some of the facilities planned to be incorporated within the SLPMA premises are a library, auditorium, computer lab and test facility.

The SLPMA Director’s board that consists of members of the SLAP and reputed suppliers are looking out on the industry for financial aid and sponsorships in order to make this utilitarian project a success.

The official launch of the building and related information will be updated via this website in due course.
