We are very small company, never thought or calculated of contribution given to Gujarat; but yes, we are always trying to provide good environmental condition to each and every employee of the company with all required needs for them and their family to change their social and financial status, which will be beneficial to our Brand Gujarat. We, being a business community, always try to satisfy all customers and try to avoid any confusion for Brand Gujarat. Being established in Gujarat, we are thankful to our culture, government and industrial policy makers for our growth.

Which are the new markets you are currently focusing on and which ones you plan to tap in the future?
We, as a company, are very slow in selection of any new country, because if we calculate our business size, it is around 0.1 per cent of total trade that happens in world for injectable/packaging machinery.

So our priority is never to target any new country unless we feel our enough presence in existing market. By targeting existing country, we are getting benefit our brand in that particular country which reduces our sales and service cost.

Also as per our knowledge, Indian market is world’s biggest market to sell our pharma machinery, as we have never seen the technically sound brain like Indians in any other country. Also, India is fastest growing economy in the world. As per my opinion one should concentrate in India first.

What are the future plans of the company? We have certain targets to reach in certain timeline, and we feel without system it is not possible to run any business professionally.

Hence our first and foremost target is to establish the system to answer anything, which we may receive from customer/ Internal team or Government.

What are the current and future key global trends in the pharmaceutical industry? How do you foresee the future of the Indian pharmaceutical industry?
Pharmaceutical Industry in India is the one of the fastest growing industries in Indian economy; one should concentrate on the day-to-day changes happening in the industry and to improve their system, equipment and timeline according to it.

If we, as a machine manufacturing company, make changes as per requirement of industry, there will be no requirement to import any machine from any other part of globe.
