Global Sports Lanka was founded in 1983 as North Sails
GSL was born in 1983 as North Sails, before being reincarnated in 2004 as Global Sports Lanka. We are today one of the leading suppliers of sails and kites to the international water sports industry.
The leisure sports industry at that time was catered to by two large factories, one factory was based in China and the other factory was our own. The rest of the production was done on a much smaller scale in lofts around the world, located in close proximity to popular sailing spots.
The technology employed in sail production was very basic, and initially sails were rudimentary products manufactured from cloth or film.
