The Story of Saarthak Refrigeration1
Started by Mr. Dinesh Kohli, Saarthak Refrigeration Pvt. Ltd. is a family-owned business which identified the need of customized refrigeration solution in the commercial refrigeration market. For 30 years the father-son duo have managed to deliver quality product through innovations driven by constant technology and modern computers.
“We are partners with several cooling-unit manufacturers in India as well as overseas, owing to our technical competency and knowledge of advanced equipment”, says Kohli.
Dealing with both national and international partners demanded Saarthak Refrigeration to stay up to date with the latest technology and bring in advanced techniques which were mutually beneficial to both Saarthak and its customers.
The company has witnessed tremendous growth in terms of sales and now hosts an employee strength of 100. Majority of their current turnover of 30+ crores has been achieved in the recent years and with this pace sky is the limit for Saarthak.
Staying Competitive in Changing Times
Saarthak Refrigeration being an end-to-end solution provider in commercial refrigeration, their primary challenge has been to design customized cooling units according to space and requirement of client’s business. Conventionally, these units were manufactured manually with no scope of trial runs. And one could only test for flaws once the final product is made.
Secondary (but important) challenges were to manage the sales team better and empower them to be more efficient and decisive in client interactions.
“Manufacturing and sales team are two critical costs for any business and to stay competitive in the market we had to make ourselves more efficient on both fronts” says Mr. Dinesh Kohli.
