In the late 19th century, when people were laboriously transcribing documents by hand, David Gestetner created the first stencil duplicator, which enabled in-house, multi-copy document reproduction for the first time. Thus began Gestetner’s long history as an innovator in the office equipment industry. Since that time, the company has been at the forefront at every stage in the evolution of document management equipment.
Until 1953 when Gestetner of Ceylon Ltd was incorporated the Gestetner brand was represented directly by its UK based founders via their subsidiary in Europe.
Upon Ricoh Corporation acquiring Gestetner International, Gestetner of Ceylon PLC started promoting Ricoh products in Sri Lanka.
Currently we employ over 140 direct staff who are engaged in Sales and Marketing, Technical after Sales Service, IT, Accounts and Administration and HR.
