THE TRUST OF OUR CHANNEL PARTNERS IS WHAT KEEPS USGOING

A candid chatter over tea with Growlam brand’s founder Mr.GauravKhetterpal turned into an amazing conversation about how the company dealt with the year 2020 and what the brand is looking forward to in 2021. Below are the snippets from a candid chat with Indian Recharger Sources, where Mr.Khetterpal have poured his heart out. Read and enjoy.

Divya: Let’s start with the lockdown survival, that’s what all want to listen to. It feels great to see how positively you have marched passed the year 2020…

Gaurav: “I believe lockdown was brutal for everyone and there is no denying to that. Domestic and international markets came down on their knees. There were brands going bankrupt, reports popping up on the news channels of job layoffs etc. But for us what worked was the hard work that we did since our inception in 2015, which eventually got paid off in 2020. Our lamination business aided us to sail through the tough waters. Reading the occurrences and keeping in mind a non performance quarter we came to the conclusion that we have passed the exam and that too with the flying colours.

The profit figures showing up in the sheets don’t lure me anymore. What mattered to me the most was that Growlam didn’t lose a single channel partner despite of the price change, we were able to give 100% salaries to staff, after a shutdown of about 3 months, we firmly bounced back and was fully operational from July onwards. That’s all what I have achieved in 2020″.

Divya: That’s highly appreciable. But I am sure there must have been other demotivating factors as well…

Gaurav: Off course, there were other factors which were not in our favour like the imposition of anti-dumping duty on black toners proved to be a set back as the consequence was a price gap between domestically manufactured and the imported one. This made us to re-think and re-evaluate our policies based on the new laws. But we are in the talkswith new factories overseas and looking forward to overpass this as well.  Not only this, there are other challenges also like companies are now more interested in cash business deals. Those who used to buy in bulk for long periods are now buying in smaller but multiple portions. This has led to a sharp decline in the credit sales. I don’t blame them for the move as the uncertainty of the market has changed the scenario a lot.

Divya: So, do we see amazing products coming our way in 2021…

Gaurav: Yes, definitely we are strenuously working on it and hope to launch it soon this year. We were able to cover up 80% of our target sales last year despite of all of that has happened. So for this year I am keeping myself a lot positive as I am sure that we will be able to reach the targets on time. This was very much clear to me from the day I started that we are never going to compromise on the quality of our products. Each and every product that we offer like laminators, lamination pouches, inkjet photo papers, PVC products, OPC Drum, laser toner cartridges or toner goes through stringent quality check. We are also working on our after sales services as well. I was touched to see how dedicatedly my staff went out despite the danger and didn’t turn off from their duties. 

Apart from this, 2021 will witness the reach of Growlam to the untouched Indian terrains mainly in North-Eastern regions. As of now, we have a strong hold in the northern and eastern areas. Western and Southern areas will be our next target. We are planning to increase our channel partners as well. Time and again we keep launching lucrative offers to motivate them. We are planning to penetrate deep and further widen the spread and reach of our brand. Growlam as an Imaging brand has come a long way and I wish that it further goes bigger and better. And aswe are talking about them I would like to take this opportunity to appreciate and thanks them all for being with us in thick and thin. What Growlam is today is all because of the joint efforts of our staff and channel partners. Their trust in us keeps us going.

I have always believed that a happy and satisfied customer is the key to any successful business. People should have trust and faith in your products.

During lockdown we heard dreadful stories of people getting thrown out of jobs, but here at Infocare s, we did not let go even a single of our staff. With government highlighting on the issue of a self-dependent India, it’s high time that we all come together and make efforts to surpass the situation. We will be spreading to the other parts of India in coming years as well.”

JIT ENTERPRISES LAUNCHES NEW TONERS FOR KYOCERA AND CANON MODELS

Adding another feather to their capJIT Enterprises has launched premium quality and affordable toners for Kyocera TASkalfa models 1620/2035/2040/3035/1800/2201/3011/3212/4035/5002/5035 and Canon models 8500/7200/105/600/605/550. These unadulterated toners are able to produce sharp prints. They are crafted by considering the need of each printer model carefully. The company claims that page yield to be as close to the OEM’s or can even surpass the benchmark. JIT Enterprises have already made a mark since inception. There aggressive marketing strategies and innovative products have made them a bankable name in printing and imaging industry.

On the occasion Mr.AlokAgrawal, founder, said, “We take immense pride in announcing our new toners which will be compatible with Kyocera and Canon models. These new toners from JIT Enterprises will set a benchmark for others in all the quality parameters. Since long India has been dependent on foreign suppliers for toners.  Being an individual from industrial background, I have always strived for obtaining excellence in the area where the market is lagging. I noticed that if not less, more than 60% of Indian toner demand is being catered by the foreign manufacturers and in India there are only a couple of  toner manufactures. Keeping this in mind we set up JIT Enterprises by installing a State of Art highly automated and integrated German line for the production of Superior quality OEM compatible toner powder for HP Laser printers and copiers to suppress dependency of India on foreign market.”

Adding to his words, Mr. JitendraDoshi, Founder said, “See, there are three things which a customer looks in while using any new product which are Quality, Consistency and Reliability and are new toners have all these in them. In this era of pandemic we have got this opportunity to deliver Indian made genuine and pocket friendly products to the customers. Indian Customer will be happy to buy MAKE IN INDIAproducts if we guarantee the above said norms.Also opting for Made In India toner will give them the flexibility of buying as they don’t have to place order for container load, they can very well plan their procurement schedule over the entire year and can utilise their financial resources more effectively. Buying from Indian Manufacturer also give customer a peace of mind about after sales service and complaint resolution”

JIT Enterprises is known to have a state of art Lab with all modern equipment’s and excellent R&D facility, where they  continuously studying the market demand and growing with them by optimising production process and continue to strive for the best.  Recently they have trended towards higher levels of automation to promise greater speed and precision of production as well as reduced exposure to human error. New production technology could help overcome the stagnant productivity of recent decades and make way for more value-added activity.

Impact of Covid-19 on Indian Imaging After Market

This is surely a very difficult time, I must say. Not only for our industry but for the whole economy. As far as the impact is considered it would be seen for at least half of the year. Resuming back from the lockdown will not work overnight.

A lot of companies, especially IT companies have started work from home, but that is not possible with our industry.

It will take time for everybody to make peace with WFH culture the new normal. Also as stated by different news channels corona virus  is here to stay, so we have to mould and develop our business in a way that we stay prepared for future and any  other calamities like this. Small vendors are in stress too. Either they have products stocked up which are lying useless due to zero sales or some of them are worrying as they are out of stock. I wish the situation comes back to normal soon.

For months businesses were closed and there was no hope seen. People flew away to their naitive places. Economy came to stand-by. But it’s not only us who are suffering. There is world along with us. Who must have thought that corona cases will touch more that 1 crore people globally. Post unlock-1 things are slowly coming back on the track. The same goes for our industry as well.
