Philosophy Havicus Group
"A philosophy - for us - is more than something we can put in writing on this webpage. It runs through everything we do and say and is at the core of the way we do business. It is simply embedded in our way of being."
Our overall philosophy and corresponding mission statement are therefore perfectly reflected by the underlying meaning and the exact origin of the name Havicus Group and its derivates, such as Havicus Sri Lanka. The international baseline they commonly share also illustrates that same philosophy. We are all about "connecting sharp-eyed visions".
For Havicus this is a basic attitude. One that lies at the very core of Havicus Group and all its connected brands and companies, such as Black Husky and Havicus Sri Lanka. This philosophy is embedded in every last one of the Havicus cells.
What's in a name...
The name Havicus is based on the Dutch word 'havik', which means 'hawk' in English. The reason? Simple, but crucial. These decisive birds are a true inspiration for us because of their extremely sharp eyesight. And this idea forms the base for our general baseline: "connecting sharp-eyed visions".
So what about the 'connecting'? The verb is chosen especially because we believe that everything is connected and every action triggers a reaction. And with connection we mean a link with others, with ourselves and with the bigger picture. For us this is about much more than just Newton's laws of motion... The 'unwritten laws' of emotion are at least equally important. We at Havicus connect our happiness to that of our clients. Because your happiness is also ours.
The realisation of dreams
In 1963 Martin Luther King declared that he had a dream. And the fact is that we all have dreams, big or small. Dreams that transcend merely materialistic desires. The dream as such is a marvellous entity. Your dreams give you a sense of direction, a purpose and in the end the positive energy you need to actually obtain those dreams. But obviously dreaming alone is not enough. Dreams need to be made a reality. Therefore dreams are the source of every form of reality. Ultimately the universe is just the echo of our dreams and our realisations.
It is said that Einstein invented his theory of relativity in his dreams. And that Mozart dreamt his scores. So really, this means that we all have a chance to give something beautiful and inspiring to this world. It is our duty to use that what we have been given so generously in order to create the best possible result for ourselves, our family, our community and our world. And that is what we at Havicus aim to do.
In our opinion dreaming is mainly about establishing a vision. A vision we want to share with others. A vision that we invite you to live and breathe through this website. It is simply all about doing the right things for the right reason. Of course, this needs to be seen in a global and general perspective, without any form of prejudice or discrimination of which nature what so ever. In the end we are all just human beings.
This is surely no traditional philosophy or mission statement, with words such as quality, service and innovation appearing every other sentence. Because for us these elements are a given. Once again, Havicus is about more than just motion... it's about emotion. It's about passion. It's about commitment. It's about responsibility.
My team and I sincerely hope to be able to greet you one day.
"And please, in whatever way possible, make your dreams come true. And above all try to share them with others and inspire them in your turn to live their dreams. It is simply a question of acting..."
We on our part are already dreaming about realising our mutual dreams...

The history of the firm dates back to this specific date... or even nine months or a lifetime before... and so, many thanks to my parents.
