How has been your journey so far with Adage Automation and what drives you today?
After completing B.Tech, I worked in senior capacities within the Indian Industry with multiple International exposures and assignments. I worked in Tata, ABB and Yokogawa in similar field of business and gained enriching experience. Specially working with the Tatas, I learnt the value system and professional way of work approach.

Adage is a specialist Gas Analytical company, delivering integrated and engineered solutions to the large and mid-size Industries for Process Optimization, Safety & Continuous Emission Monitoring applications. Presently the company is at the leadership position in Continuous Gas Analyzers & Laser Analytics
Solutions in the Indian Industry. Adage Automation is also amongst the fastest growing organization with world class technology and high quality solutions.

can be a market leader only if one stays ahead in terms of innovation and new technology

Why Goa was chosen to be the breeding ground of your company?
Adage Automation was initially started in Mumbai and shifted to Goa six years earlier. Looking at the overall ambience, the friend liness of the people and the state administration, we decided to set up the company in Goa. We are happy to be in Goa for the Industry friendly demeanor of the Goa State Industry association GSIA, VIA, GMA, and CII as well as present day positive business environment within the young state of Goa & good governance of the Goa State and hence we don’t intend to look outside the state of Goa to fulfil our expansion plans.

How do you maintain the perfect balance between your personal and professional life? What is your success mantra?
When it comes to the working environment at Adage, we have a nice professional set up with young managers owning the responsibilities and experienced professionals managing the business in the most efficient manner. At Adage, the unique thing I experienced is the trust factor for the team members in each other’s abilities and on company’s value system and the Trust of our customers about Adage’s quality and commitment. The aspect that excites me the most is the fact that the people in Adage continues to work as one team and most of them have stayed back with the company for a very long time.

At the personal life front, I am active in sports & in cycling in particular. Fortunately, we have one of India’s best cycling club called XAXTI Riders in Goa and I am a part of them. The success Mantra for life
balance for me is 'One has to learn to switch ON and switch OFF at the most appropriate time'and thus the professional and personal life complements and doesn’t conflict.

Going forward, what are the changes in market behavior that you anticipate and what are the opportunities that you foresee?
The market dynamics is changing at rapid pace.The customers are extremely knowledge able today. What they expect is not what you have and produce in mass quantity and what you will force them to accept but to listen to them and customize your products and solutions to meet their expectations. So a company like Adage that can engineer solutions and are focused upon R&D and Innovations would probably lead in the future.

At the same time, the focus is not anymore on which part of the world you produce, but the acceptance towards solutions with highest quality standards and top technology in product specifications. The company is truly living up to the mission of the Hon Prime Minister of India as 'Make-in-India for India and for the World'. We are confident that we will emerge as one of the Global leaders in the days coming soon.
