Throw some light on your educational background and professional experience. What prompted you to venture into the medical device domain?

However, when I joined the company the business was not doing well in the market and was on the verge of collapse. So, we decided to
restructure the company and venture into the medical device domain as it was a booming market. Subsequently, I took the helm of the business and established Orion Sutures in 2015. We gradually scaled up our production facilities, including every aspect of quality or whatever was required at the time, including machines and sophisticated latest technology. And from a turnover of 50 lakhs in 2015, we could reach a turnover of around Rs.2 crores in 2017, and Rs.12 crores in the previous financial year.
