It also mattered a lot when we were finalizing the deal. Having said, we are today quite satisfied with their after sales and technical support.”

The company also provides Canteen, Transport and Medical Fund as employees benefit schemes. “To provide employment opportunities to locals, we even recruit freshers and train them on the job,” says Mogali.
