Aman Moudgil, CEO at Gilco Global Pvt Ltd
Great Companies: How did you get your idea or concept for the business?
Aman Moudgil: I am also a co-founder at a leading Project Management Consulting company based in India and have been aligned with the construction sector also. When we got this opportunity; wherein the Spanish major, Orona S. Co op was looking for partners for the Indian market (which happens to be the 2nd biggest Elevator market in the World and coincidentally ORONA was not present here that time) we knew the gap in the market and hence were interested in pursuing this venture.
As we were always atuned to sourcing elevators for our projects, we were already aware of the Industry's potential and the areas of concerns with current competition. Furthermore, the customer's perspectives and the pain points dealing with lift companies is something that made us think beyond what OEMs would be aligned pragmatically. Furthermore, ORONA's philosophy of customization and inherent flexible approach in working closely with its customers and with an approach to be closer to the customer's wish list (in terms of design, aesthetics) and above all technically superior product (EN81 certified with Green certification ISO 14006) made the marriage an automatic affair.
