How did you get into business?
My father traded foodstuffs. I realised that trading was a low margin business when I studied business in the US. As a part of my education programme I was visiting manufacturing plants. I told my father that “we” needed to get into manufacturing. My father advised me to follow my calling. He didn’t want to change. I had seen products coming on pallets to our warehouse and getting dispatched to customers. I asked my father if making pallets was a good business to start. My father asked me to study the business.
An uncle of mine gave me catalogues to study and leads to companies. We got invitations to visit factories in different countries. I wanted to see the machinery working before deciding on what to purchase. I visited Spain, saw the machinery, and collected all the details to start a factory. The initial investment was too high. I declined the proposal.
And then the supplier came to UAE."
