RALL poised to achieve remarkable growth – CEO

In 2020, Rakna Arakshaka Lanka Limited (RALL) increased the overall gross revenue by 66 per cent relative to 2019, its CEO and Chairman Dulath Wijetilleke said yesterday.

“We increased our headcount to meet the increasing demands of our customers, established state-of-the-art training facilities, increased our market share in the restaurant space, implemented new software systems and technologies to automate mundane and routine tasks saving time and money and entered into a Public-Private Partnership (PPP) with a leading international Security company and Avant Garde Maritime Limited. creating additional 3,500 job opportunities internationally and locally,” Wijetilleke said.

Addressing the employees on the eve of 2021, he stated that the company looks forward to growing its name and continuing to work towards becoming the market leader for private security in the South Asian region. “We look forward to embarking on new projects, new initiatives, building new relationships, and strengthening our relationships. There are several projects and initiatives in 2021 that will propel RALL’s mission forward while creating additional jobs for Sri Lanka’s veterans. I would also like to thank all of our customers, partners and affiliated organisations for their continued support and commitment. Rest assured that our customers and partners are RALL’s number one priority”.

“Our vision for 2020 was to build a solid foundation and work towards being a trailblaser and benchmark for private security companies in the South Asian region. In typical RALL fashion, we obviously set very aggressive and challenging goals for our organisation knowing that falling just short of a very aggressive goal is a better accomplishment than easily attaining a very reachable goal,” he said.

He said that with the global pandemic, 2020 was an unprecedented year in terms of challenges. “My heart goes out to every individual and family that has lost someone close in the pandemic, though I know that words cannot begin to capture the tragedy and the sadness that has resulted from it. However, amidst the sorrow, the chaos, and the general disorientation of “normal” life, something very special emerged. Yet again, the human spirit was tested and it has triumphed. People from all over the world showed tremendous resilience and came together and united against a singular challenge.”
