Mackwoods is a pioneer in the management of tea estates and, has been involved since the inception of tea plantations in Sri Lanka. In recognition of the Company's proven track record in plantation management, the Company was appointed as Advisors to the Government of Zambia in respect of the agricultural and management aspects of the Zambian tea estates in the early 1970's and was also subsequently successful in its competitive bid to manage a plantation Company again when Mackwoods was selected to manage Agalawatte Plantations Ltd, consisting of 17 tea and rubber estates, spanning 27,000 acres. Each estate is run as a separate Strategic Business Unit, each with a staff of over 500 inclusive of all housing, welfare, health, and education facilities, a substantial factory and production and processing facility. Mackwoods successfully turned around this Company into a profitable enterprise within one & a half years of management and subsequently acquired controlling interest in the Company.
