Views – In the 21st century, the world becomes so small due to globalization and advanced technology. Young people must take advantage of this to join other countries, learn, teach, make business, and love them so many things’ to be done in a very small life.
When Shreekant has started a company in 2004 with a small number of funds, there was a big problem with marketing expenses. Then at that time, he started marketing on internet, sending letters, catalog, new development on products, use of his products & many more, sharing knowledge with customers by writing letter & sending by email, at that time social media was not popular, but he uses to talk on Google talk & other media that were available. His approach to marketing was quite innovative at that time, low-cost marketing he achieved and got pretty good orders from Ashok Leyland, Tata Motors, JBM, Caparo group, etc. And secondly, every time even after receipt of orders, he did R & D inhouse, to make products at a low cost using different engineering techniques. For example, if one product he is selling at Rs.100, where the raw material is used for Rs.60.000. In 2004, Mr.Shreekant Patil, who is a qualified graduate engineer but having tremendous confidence, vast knowledge of resistance welding consumables, spot welding gun, robotics, manufacturing, engineering, product development, marketing and determined about his business, started Paramount Enterprises business with a little number of funds in the pocket. Then few bankers have kept faith in Shreekant’s confidence, project s & determination they helped him a lot to set his business. Initially, Shreekant had very big trouble to get orders from customers, then he started helping & support customers to their problems in the resistance welding area until 2 years.
Slowly, Shreekant added conventionally machined to the production line at Paramount to cater to his products. Developed people from different areas at his works, shared his knowledge, taking care of them & their family, stands with them friendly which results, his front office, engineering team, the production team are serving to Paramount for a decade with love. After setting up the production line & awarded with ISO certification for quality standards, Shreekant upgraded new technology machines like CNC, VMC, Press, EDM to enhance productivity to able to cater to customers timely delivery with quality. Inspiration – Paramount Enterprises has tied up with one of the leading companies in the United Kingdom, which cater products all over Europe & UK especially Bentley, Ford, Honda, General motors, etc. Early days, they were used to procure resistance welding parts from China, unfortunately, they had a bad patch due to poor quality supplied by their China partner. Then they approached Paramount Enterprises for better quality and asked if Paramount can match prices too.
Mr.Shreekant has then decided to make such a product with a minimum price to match China’s price with excellent quality which especially European companies prefer. Much hard work, devotion, he developed such a product and supplied it to his customer in EU initially. In little time, the product has been approved by most of the customer in the EU. Presently Paramount makes business with a partner in EU- almost – 2 Million US dollars every year. Europe’s customer is now planned to double business with Paramount next year.
