Shums & Company Ltd
   
In 1948 Late S.A.C.Shums along with his brothers S.A.C.H.Jiffry, S.A.C.Mosin, S.A.C.OmarThassim, S.A.C.Cader and an associate H.L.M.A.Cader established Shums and Company. The Company operations revolved around Trading and exports of natural rubber, spices, coconut products and other produce from Ceylon - now called Sri Lanka.

A pioneer in the exports of Natural Rubber, spices and coconut products, the Company has now diversified into imports and exports, trading, travels, plantations, fruit canning, gems and jewellery, agency representatives, the entertainment industry and a host of other spheres. The Company was first situated in Maliban Street, Colombo 11 and relocated in Fort, Colombo 1 afterwards. At the time, Fort was considered one of the most commercial trading areas in Ceylon.

The Export Division of Shums & Company Limited was established in 1948 by late Mr. S A C Shums. An entrepreneur of far-sighted vision, after the incorporation of the division, he pioneered in the export of rubber to the People's Republic of China . This was a very bold step in the context of the risks prevailing at the time with no guarantees.

At the time the People's Republic of China and Sri Lanka had no diplomatic relations. Most local companies feared to trade with countries that lacked basic guarantees. Nevertheless, trading activities soon expanded to include many more countries in the Western and Eastern hemispheres.

Business grew so successful that soon food products in shipments of tea, natural rubber, spices, coconut and its bi-products were further intensified.
