Chairman Message
Everyone has good times and bad in their lives. I believe that when one door closes, another opens. I have had many doors closed on me throughout my life and have seen other doors open as well. Leader Automobile is a door that opened for me when all the other doors in my life had closed down and I was in desperate need for a breakthrough in my goal to become a successful entrepreneur. From my childhood onwards, I dreamt to be a businessman, Just after I left by banking job, I noticed a necessity for spare part in my dad’s Bajaj shop. I took a chance and made a few trips to Chennai to bring down some spare parts for two wheelers. Luckily all my items got sold out. I did an in-depth research into the market and came up with a business plan. I invited Mr. Jayasundera, who was a friend of mine, to invest in my business. He accepted my invitation without any hesitation. I got together a few people to help me establish the business and together we began importing container loads of spare parts under the Endurance brand which became extremely famous islandwide.

There were several challenges that we have faced till today. But we kept our cool and overcame these challenges in a perfect manner. Till today, our biggest challenge and biggest investment is the Leader Battery Manufacturing Plant. I dreamt day and night to go in for manufacturing and my dream came true when we signed the Technical Collaboration agreement with Guangzhou Power Supply Ltd. This agreement launched the pioneering plant for Motorcycle battery manufacturing in my mother country. We are proud to say that this investment is a huge success! We are using the most up-to-date technology in our fully automated battery manufacturing plant in Horana, which has the capacity to produce approximately two million batteries a year. These batteries are being distributed throughout the country through our massive dealer network of 2300 outlets as well as our garage network of over 3500 outlets.

In this message, I would like to thank everyone who believed in me and invested in my idea and contributed towards bringing my company to where it stands today!
