Maga Engineering was founded by M.G Kularatne in 1983. It seized the opportunity to enter the construction industry, filling the void created by the high demand for construction activities sprouting from the open economy pursued by the government of the 1980’s. The company took up the challenges the industry offered, acquiring construction managerial expertise by working alongside international contractors.
Maga secured the first main contract for the construction of a three storied office building for National Building Research Organisation. This project was completed ahead of schedule whilst maintaining a remarkable level of workmanship. Construction of Eden Hotel in 1992 signified Maga’s entry into major building construction.
The Company acquired the plant and machinery required for major construction work and successfully built a dynamic and dedicated team armed with the necessary knowledge and experience which can be considered its vital strength. It is this capacity and strength which enabled it to secure some of the most prestigious construction projects.
