He believes in quality and finds it ultimate in success of any product and says that the quality is primary for gaining customers confidence. Despite belonging to the MSME category he is well known in the market. Interacting with the Ply Reporter he shared the objective to venture into manufacturing, “We were experiencing gap in the market of good suppliers. Whatever they had, were not up to the mark to their commitments. Sometimes they were compromising with quality due to unresponsiveness or greediness. At that point of time we were thinking to have to grow and there was no option rather to move towards manufacturing.”
“Our group strengths are man-powers as partners, having experience of 33 years of marketing, good knowledge to the technology of plywood manufacturing, being centrally located at the hub of plywood manufacturing are an added advantages for the growth,” he said. New Pragati Plywood have ventured into plywood manufacturing with a vision to make good product for the mid segment retail market based on PR and sustainably grow ‘slow but steady’ with their own principle.
