NEW Powered Stair Climbing Carts for INDIA!

Posted by Contributing Editor on Fri, Dec 05, 2014

Late in August, the PowerMate® team had the pleasure of meeting with Mr. Rajan Kandoi and his long-time friend and associate Mr. Ajit Karnavat. This meeting was in response to their request to become the PowerMate® Distributor Partner for the country of India. The meetings were a complete success!

We were very pleased to have the two gentlemen here at L P International Inc. to learn more about them, their business plans, and culture. As hosts, we were pleased and honoured to share our vision for PowerMate® and a little bit of Canada in the process too! We believe it was a valuable learning experience and provided a solid foundation for both parties to work towards moving forward - together.

 It became obvious to us that they had "done their homework" and sharing the same core business values, would make the ideal business partner in bringing the PowerMate® brand to India.

 Map of India

To put the staggering potential of India into perspective, the population of India is 1.2 billion people. The City of Mumbai alone (32 million people), has almost the same population as the entire country of Canada (35 million people)!

The State of Maharashtra, which their city of Pune is located in, has a population of 114 million people, encompassing an area approximately the same size of Labrador (highlighted in red, right image)!

Already a successful and reputable businessman in India, Mr. Kandoi believes that as recently as 10 years ago introducing an innovative product like PowerMate® may not have been possible. He cited the following emerging trends in India that suggest to him the time is now right for PowerMate® in India:

  1. Responsible business. Safety has and is always important to the large number of multi-national corporations located in the country. Larger corporations place a high priority on their employees well-being and view safety as a “quality of life” issue.

  2. Like many other countries around the world, the trend of younger people opting for higher education and fewer people wanting to do physical work is starting in India.

  3. There is a trend in India to actively seek out opportunities for technological solutions and innovation to age old issues with an emphasis on safety, efficiency, profitability and growing sustainable business.

  4. The Government lead political and economic direction is providing stability over the past 5+ years with the leadership of Prime Minister, Mr. Narendra Modi. Mr. Kandoi is highly optimistic this will continue and even improve over the coming years.

In summary, Mr. Kandoi sees that the time and market conditions in India are right for the introduction of PowerMate® stair climbing hand carts and safety lifting devices and we agree!

There is much work ahead of us and the team at MotoStair LLP, the newly formed company that they will market PowerMate® under in the coming months. One of the greatest challenges Mr. Kandoi identified is; managing change.

Introducing new safety lifting technology that is different than how moving goods has been done for centuries and centuries will not be without its challenges. We have every confidence that Mr. Kandoi and his team at MotoStair LLP are the right people to successfully manage this change and build a highly successful PowerMate® Brand in India.

Their first shipment of PowerMate® equipment has arrived in Pune. He and his team are excited to share this new technology with businesses throughout the entire country of India as our newest PowerMate® Distributor Partner! In addition to the sale of PowerMate® solutions, the team will offer service and operator training to their customers in the country.
