He is indeed an inspiration for many young entrepreneurs starting anew in the industry. Below is the excerpt of an exclusive interview of Danish with CEO Insights.

What inspired you to start a venture in the Mining and Metals industry segment?
During my childhood, I used to visit my father’s steel manufacturing unit where steel was processed and traded; ever since then, I have developed an interest in the Steel
industry. I even remember an incident of my younger days, where my father took me to visit a steel manufacturing plant in Chandigarh. To a great extent, I was amazed by the details of the processing of steel and told my father that I wanted to grow myself in a similar industry. So, immediately after completing Engineering from the UK, I came back to India and created Ferron Tubes under the aegis of New Hindustan Tubes.

At Ferron, we keep quality and delivery at the center of our actions and keep these values uncompromised

Tell us more about Ferron Tubes and its position in the current steel market.
Ferron Tubes is a young company holding young and innovative employees. We are very energetic and dynamic as a team, while being one of the largest Steel Tube manufacturers in North India. We offer our customers products and try to offer solutions to them, which is quite difficult in a commodity based industry as it is a very price sensitive market. At Ferron, we keep quality and delivery at the center of our actions and keep these values uncompromised.

How would you describe your role in tackling the challenges posed by the pandemic? Also, post-pandemic, what are the changes in market behavior that you anticipate, and what opportunities do you foresee?
The COVID-19 crisis has undoubtedly been a very unfortunate situation that turned the
world upside down. But seeing opportunity in a crisis is the biggest thing that I have learned throughout my life. COVID has been an opportunity for us to redesign our business model and focus on several untapped areas of the company. We have been able to revamp our operations during the pandemic and grow abundantly since then. On the other hand, as a team of Ferron Tubes, we have come closer to each other and never backed out on our employees. That is what drives the company today. The Steel industry is huge, and it has got great potentials. With the rise in demands and steel prices, the cashflows have improved and have been really positive for the industry. Hence, we see a lot of growth in the coming years.

What advice would you give to the budding professionals in this domain?
The Steel industry is a vast industry with immense opportunities on the way. If you dream big and work hard to grab those opportunities, the sky is the limit.
