A Dream to Fly

Inspiration

The trading unit was incurring huge losses and thus, there was a need to identify the problems caused in the current business model. After intensive research and understanding, the owner understood there was a need to shift from a trading firm to a manufacturing firm. Although, setting up a manufacturing unit is a long process and requires huge capital, if the plan is executed with careful consideration, it can work in your favour. The company successfully launched a manufacturing unit. While having the conversation regarding what drove Mahendra Jain, the CEO, to start a new unit altogether, she said “We belonged to a lower class family where my mother had great aspirations and belief in me that I would do something big one day. My strive for excellence, passion for better standard of living and hard working ambitious attitude was my only motivation.”

Overall impact

Rational Engineering Ltd. believes that any company without its employees and team is incomplete and gives high weightage to its employee’s well being and holistic development. By providing job opportunities to people living in the village where our manufacturing units/factories are located and providing clean drinking water and proper sanitation facilities and by trying to reduce their carbon footprint, Rational Engineering has always promoted the culture of sustainable development and the overall success of the organization with all its stakeholders.

The business leader, belonging to a lower class family where her mother had great aspirations and belief in her that she would do something big one day. Her strive for excellence, passion for better standard of living and hard working ambitious attitude being her only motivation, drove her to huge success in her career story.
