The core business of this company is the manufacturing of Impact sensors for automobile airbags and seatbelts. Customers include Toyota, Nissan, Honda, Mitsubishi and Mazda of Japan, Ford, General Motors and Chrysler of USA and Volvo, Saab, BMW, Aston Martin, Opel and Renault of Europe. Mr. Pallewatta rakes into the country foreign revenue worth over US $ 25 million annually.

In recognition of his outstanding contribution to the Sri Lankan Economy, the Junior Chamber International in 2006 awarded his the most prestigious award “The TOYP” in the category of Business and Entrepreneurial accomplishment.

An attorney-at-law by profession, versatile Rohan Pallewatta holds a B.A. (English Special) and has a MBA from the University of Sri Jayawardenapura. He has been a visiting lecturer and an examiner in Business Law from 2000. His most recent appointment is as the director of recently incorporated State Resources Management Corporation.

The quality requirement of the product that Mr. Pallewatta manufactures is 1 ppm, which means only a single defect would be tolerated for a million produced. The uniqueness in Rohan’s achievement is that this is the first time that Sri Lanka has entered the international market with a 1 ppm quality product. A product of St. Anthony’s College, Kandy, Mr. Pallewatta was the Head Prefect in the year 1987.

He will be speaking on the topic: “Frog’s eggs”. Rohan Pallewatte wants to share his own thoughts on perseverance as he learned to break from the stereotypical view towards business from a young age. He wants to reiterate the fact that kids today should focus on innovation and creativity as opposed to running with mainstream ideologies. Bringing forward a different concept as opposed to sticking to the status quo is the essence of his talk.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
