Recalling his struggles, Ssanjay narrates,
“I had to face lot of challenges. When I took over I was just 18 years old and at the same time was pursuing my studies in Interior designing. So it was study and work together. But the biggest advantage that I got was that a lot of hands on experience while studying. So theory became easy to understand since I was getting practical knowledge as well. We had very few clients then. But I thank them all their support during our difficult times.”
As a true entrepreneur, Ssanjay keeps a close watch to the latest happening in the industry and on demand, doesn’t hesitate to upgrade their offerings to the client. Innovative changes in the workings of the designs & site work along with internal organization changes help him to be a contender in grabbing the market opportunities.

“Be sincere, disciplined, hardworking and transparent towards the work that you do for your clients / customer. These same morals have to be followed in any dealings you do in life, it always pays back.”
