About Us
The history of Delmege Forsyth Co. Ltd goes back to the year 1850, when Alexander Reid “established as a merchant in Peddler Street Galle”. In 1865, the brothers Delmege, (Sam and Toby) arrived in Ceylon and went into partnership with James Reid who succeeded Alexander, setting up offices in Colombo and Galle. It is recorded that the Delmege brothers had been working as Pilots and Collectors in the Mississippi River Steamer Service and had made a fortune in “running the blockade”. On the termination of the American Civil War, they left America and settled in Ceylon. Between 1865 and 1892, the partnership successfully acquired many important agencies for Coal, Insurance and Steamships. In 1882 they were made agent for The Hong Kong and Shanghai Bank, forming a relationship that still continues more than a hundred years later.
In 1872
E.T. Delmege became the Consular Agent for the United States. Unfortunately the Delmege brothers fell out and in 1892 A. Forsyth joined E.T Delmege and formed Delmege Forsyth & Co. This Company represented the Russian, Spanish and Portuguese Consulates and the Asiatic Petroleum Co. which was later to become The Shell Company of Ceylon. Company activities centered on the import and distribution, of Australian flour, sugar from China and Java and salt from Port Said. Distribution was effected by establishing an island wide network of distributing agents. This network still persists up to the present day – a century later. Delmege has the distinction of pioneering the use and distribution of cheap Kerosene oil for home lighting. Until this time village houses were solely dependent on coconut oil for illumination.
In 1918
Delmege Forsyth & Company became a limited liability Company, DELMEGE FORSYTH & CO.LTD.
In 1978
F.G.N.Mendis, Chairman of Lewis Brown & Co.Ltd., acquires the controlling interest in Delmege Forsyth & Company Limited.
In 2011
