“I began by selling reconditioned tyres. As the dust settled, military vehicles that served World War ll dotted our land. I saw an opportunity in salvaged vehicles and parts.””
“I soon realized that the mechanics who came to buy these foreign parts knew little about them. Rebuilding engines was then a logical step forward.”
“To thrive, a business must expand – in the right direction, at the right time. We scaled up to car dealerships from the increasingly crowded spare parts space bringing new brands to the liberalising Indian market.”
“In business, like in game of cards, you should take risks. But you must calculate the odds.”
