Unveiling the inspiration behind this entrepreneurship
Entrepreneurship is not a cakewalk. It takes intense efforts and utmost dedication to build a company from scratch. The success of Ami Polymer is a testament to the unwavering efforts put forth by the M.D., to make it stay ahead of the curve!
Alpesh Gandhi pursued his bachelor’s degree in Engineering in Rubber Technology from LD College of Engineering, Ahmedabad. After attaining the degree, he decided to work for some major enterprises across the relevant domain. But he didn’t find work as an employee for some big enterprises quite alluring and hence, he quit his high-paying job. Afterward, he shifted to Mumbai to seek better career opportunities.
While in Mumbai, he pursued his MBA. To bring financial stability to his educational goals, he commenced a small trading business to earn some profit. Gradually, his venture expanded and bestowed him with great success which intrigued the zeal of delving into the entrepreneurial space. This zealous approach concluded in the inception of Ami Polymer and since then, there is no turning back for him.
It was not easy for Alpesh to commence a business on his own and that too when he belonged to a service-class family. His parents are teachers at reputed institutions and he had no godfather in the business world. But as it is said, if you put your heart and soul into something, everything falls into its place. It has been true to Alpesh’s entrepreneurial journey as well.
What is so unique about them?
When asked about their differentiating factor, Alpesh elucidates that they endeavor to deliver the utmost satisfaction to their esteemed customers with their end-to-end services. Owing to their world-class certification compliances such as E&L Studies, USP class 87, and ISO10993 Biocompatibility studies on products from Toxikon Lab (USA), they have been delivering excellence across the relevant domain. Their exclusive expertise allows them to tailor customized polymers as per customers’ requirements. To this respect, Alpesh asserts,
“Ami Polymer always believes to go beyond that what it can manufacture today in the present. We believe in creating innovation and services for our customers.”
Dealing with the global pandemic
The Covid-19 crisis hit the business world hard and put everything at stake. It has only been a couple of months now since the business world tried to come back on track. Talking off the strategies that Ami Polymer ensured to combat the pandemic, Alpesh states that initiating work-from-home practice was the very first step towards the protective mechanism. Management ensured strict limitations on the traveling of its employees. In the case of serving the essential service industry such as pharma customers, they ensured on-time delivery by taking absolute precautionary measures to prevent the viral spread.
Moreover, they also ensured to help their employees by offering daily essentialities in the hard times amidst Nationwide Lockdown. Also, they assured immediate medical support to their APPL staff in case of emergencies. The strict implementation of the rules finally paid off after the Lockdown was lifted, and Ami Polymer bounced back with the same zeal and dedication. Owing to their optimism and enthusiasm, they have been able to overcome the challenges and uncertainties posed by the global pandemic. This unprecedented time has taught them the significance of digitalization. Operating the business from virtual portals has allowed people to pull themselves closer to their families and also to their staff members, continues Alpesh.
