Being an experienced leader, share your opinion on how adopting modern technologies like AI and ML impacts the logistics sector and how your organization is adapting to the change.

We must stay in sync with the industry advancements and have the vision to lead the team. While the furniture sector remains majorly unorganized with the advent of e-commerce giants, the paradigm shift has propelled the major players to reach out to a more convenience-oriented purchase process for their audience. The emphasis is on specialization in terms of state-of-the-art technology, quality, materials, sustainable and scalable practices and global yet timeless aesthetics. As leaders, we welcome new technologies and updates to stay competitive.

Considering the current industry scenario, what challenges do you face, and how do you drive your organization to overcome them?

To remain competitive in the furniture industry, there are two constant challenges: maintaining consistent quality and service for decades and keeping up with the latest trends to stay relevant to the industry and customers. To address these challenges, we have taken a multi-pronged approach. With the help of our motivated team of professionals, we have expanded our sales channels to include online platforms like www.durian.in and other e-commerce marketplaces and a significant brick-and-mortar presence with over 50 stores. This approach allows us to offer their products to a wider audience while maintaining the quality and service standards they are known for.

What would you advise budding professionals who aspire to venture into the Ergonomic Products industry?

Our advice for aspiring entrepreneurs is to stay positive and believe in your abilities and marketing knowledge. Stay confident and open-minded as you climb the ladder of success. Trust your decision-making skills and be willing to take risks. Throughout our journey, we encountered much scepticism at every step, whether it was setting up a manufacturing facility to global standards in an industry that relied heavily on imports or establishing a brand and offering value in an unorganized sector. However, it is important to overcome doubts and negative perceptions with positivity and strong belief in oneself.
