SCIA South Ceylon Industrial Agency
SCIA, South Ceylon Industrial was inaugurated in 1952 under the name of Siddiqui Company and started exporting Blue Sheen Moonstones under the leadership of the present directors' father Mr. N.M. Lafir.

Volumous export trade was done with different customers with Germany and the U.S.A. too. Present day too Moonstones of Sri Lanka is a major foreign exchange earning product in our export. In 1964, the 2 senior sons of Mr Lafir came into the business to help their father.

They later came as two partners in expanding their trade in the colour stone, namely Blue Sapphire, Yellow Sapphires, Star Sapphires which also found a good demand in the Europe and the United States Also the semi precious stones, Colored Zircon, Different kind of Zircons, Aquamarines, Rare stones etc. were also included to the list of offers beside the Moonstones.

Again another two family members of the Lafir's family joint with the latter to help expand the trade namely manufacturing of Jewellery in Gold and silver setting with Sri Lankan Gems. This is in consideration of the following fact.

Generally, the Southern Province of Srilanka with the City of Galle as its provincial Capital took the lead as the Premier Cutting and Polishing Centre and enabled to offer the Export Trade different verities of Gem stones and Jewellery product to the whole world.

Therefore procuring the right goods in Gems or Jewellery from the producing center enabled us to have the right goods at a lower price and to offer great benefit to our customers. Although at first we started buying the products from the goldsmith, later we established a factory for both items, for Gems and Jewellery. Which enable us to help the customers their demanding requirement and also to guaruntee the product i.e. the stones, metal and the production of the items under our own supervision.

Further to the benefit of our foreign customers who feels tired of their traveling and to ease their inconvenience, avoiding a long way to Galle, we opened a branch under the same name SCIA South Ceylon Industrial Agency at 92 Hotel Road Mount Lavinia to cater their requirement either with stones or Jewellery under the management of Mr. Fazlurrahman (Fazul) who is the son of the precedent partner of the firm SCIA South Ceylon Industrial Agency, in Galle.
