ETI expands at Kurunegala
ETI, one of the most successful and stable finance companies in the
country, has upgraded its previous branch presence by opening a
brand-new fully fledged branch office at Kurunegala, further expanding
the scope of ETI’s existing operations in the region.
Opened by Chairperson Dr. Soma Edirisinghe, the Board of Directors
and Chief Executive Officer Mahendra De Silva, this office will now
offer customers an even more extensive range of finance facilities
including leasing, hire purchase, fixed deposits, pawning, gold sales,
property development, real estate, trade finance, import and sale of
vehicles, and now, agro-business as well.
These services cater to firms and customers from all walks of life;
whether it’s obtaining a letter of credit on behalf of a company or
discreetly taking care of a client’s pawning needs, ETI is committed to
delivering the highest levels of customer service.
Senior Manager, Chandana Dassanayake said “although competition in
the area is high, we are confident that our personalised service,
attractive rates, and in-depth knowledge of the market will enable us to
increase our turnover by 100% by next year,” adding that the company
seeks to dominate the markets for hire purchase and leasing. ETI plans
on opening smaller window offices around the region that will be
connected to the company’s high-tech branch network, to maximize its
opportunities and deliver an enhanced customer service experience.
Speaking of the strength of the EAP Edirisinghe Group of Companies,
Chairperson Dr. Soma Edirisinghe said that “even with a difficult
financial climate, ETI has managed to record impressive growth” which
she attributed to “a focus on continually improving our service and our
products and pioneering new concepts as well.”

which speaks to the level of trust that we have built up in the region.”
