I am pleased to have the opportunity, on the occasion of our Golden Jubilee, to
specially thank all those who have been a part of our journey.
Like all parts of our society, we too have experienced many changes over the last
fifty years. The threats we faced were transformed into opportunities. Our company’s
vision is to be globally recognized as one of the best electrical, power distribution
and lighting solutions provider. Our growing market strength has provided us the
impetus to scale up. We are committed to surpassing our customer expectations and
set standards in business and transactions based on mutual trust.
I have spoken of the timeless values which characterize our company today leading
to our aggressive business strategies with quality service. These characteristics,
as well as our courage, to foresee challenges are apparent, and highly regarded,
in business community today.
Our business today operates in a world of relentless and real-time change as we
approach the second decade of the 21st century. From shifts in the global climate
to evolving economic and demographic trends in our local communities, we live and
work in an environment that constantly challenges us to think anew about our customers,
communities and responsibilities as a company. We embrace these changes and our
accountability as a business starts with our customers, nearly 10,000 employees,
investors, regulators, partners and communities. It ultimately extends to everyone
who shares our interest in ensuring a clean, secure energy future from national
policymakers to industry peers at home and even overseas.
As in the past, our performance with sterling achievements so far has been driven
by the commitment of our employees, clients, vendor-partners, investors and bankers.
I thank them for their unwavering trust and support. In today’s ever-changing
competitive environment we have to stay ahead in the race, where new product development;
brand positioning; focus on emerging markets and new customers; de-risking our strategies;
and cost effective sourcing, are some strategic moves that will help us.
I also strongly believe the attributes that will make us stand out and will produce
consistent results in future will be our diversity, our technology, our strategic
focus, our geographic reach and, above all, the culture and philosophy of our company.
These efforts are not only the right thing for our customers, they are also important
in achieving our vision of sustained and sustainable leadership in the industry.
I wish everyone at Havells great success in all our future endeavors.
