Charting the new paths…

Mr. Premal says, “The bar rises higher with each day in career. So it’s difficult to define a particular moment as a High Point. But yes, you have adrenaline when you are on a mission” The company entered the storage solution business in around 2009. And then they entered the Automated Storage business in 2011. Jay Storage Solutions empowered their clients with designed, developed, manufactured & commissioned the first Automated Storage & retrieval System of INDIA. This was a challenging mission because at the time there were only about less than 10 such installations in INDIA and each one of these installations was from a developed nation namely, Japan, Germany, Austria, etc. The company’s contribution to make in India and a holistic vision to transform businesses across the nation is commendable.

Jay Storage Solutions went on the mission to develop this system indigenously, with no technical know-how or support from any established global player. The company went to several suppliers for manufacturing special components & developed each one of them in INDIA. The company’s very own manufacturing system was re-designed to achieve an extremely high degree of precision that these systems require. After breaking through with many unconventional manufacturing techniques, they observed that there was a technology vacuum in INDIA, which even technology MNC’s like Omron, ABB, Siemens, etc. didn’t offer in INDIA. Jay Storage Solutions was almost practically forced to go their counterparts since there was no know-how of these systems in INDIA. But, the company rejected it & after a lot of brainstorming with many of these technology suppliers Jay Storage Solutions narrowed down to Siemens, with a condition that on the backend maybe Siemens Germany may support, but they want the INDIAN engineers to understand the system, supply & service from Siemens INDIA. It was a herculean task to achieve. The project was completed within the time frame with 100% efficiency of the deliverables. The project came out well with lots of appreciation from their customers & well-wishers.   

Having made sure that each of their projects is not only successful but also ensuring complete satisfaction for all stakeholders, Jay Storage Solutions have now built itself into the league of ‘the most Trusted & reliable partners’.

 “We live in an age of global competition. Some of our competitions are world leaders. What sets us apart is our commitment to all our stakeholders. We live by a simple credo – commit what you can deliver & deliver what you commit.”  Mr. Premal commented.

He says Mr. Ratan Tata has always been a source of motivation for him. Under the unmatched leadership of Mr. Premal, JAY’s team makes hard and smart efforts to climb new heights of success every day.

He believes in creating and focusing their path to achieve the desired, without looking at what others do. He says, “The rat –race only exists in people or companies’ minds, superficially. You can run in a race all your life? Can you? And what do you achieve after winning ‘The Race’? It’s the journey that is exciting than the destination. You have to be in your league, there is no race there.”

Mr. Premal Karelia’s take on the current industry scenario and the market after Covid-19  “We are living in an age of continuous disruptions. We are also living in unprecedented times in human history.  In today’s background & the out-break of the Covid-19 pandemic, it has affected the economics & demographics of all countries & also affected each living human being in this world, it is going to be more challenging than ever. In the immediate terms, the challenge & focus will be maintaining sufficient liquidity to ensure smooth operations, maintaining and preserving our physical & human resources. While in the medium term we expect growth trajectories to be in range, and that we start operating in the Pre-covid era, we will continue to innovate & digitalize our operations in every form that we can. We will continue, not only to innovate on our products but innovate in everything we do, in our operations & come out with solutions, that would consume less natural resource, directly & indirectly, rationalize the overall operations & the ecosystem to achieve maximum efficiency. We will also embark on a journey to partner with our customers, & offer them products & solutions that will make a positive bottom-line effect on them. We will handhold & be a valued partner in our customers’ business. The post-covid era will offer many opportunities & we will keep ourselves prepared to take the next big leap.
