Below is an excerpt of of K. L. Bajaj’s exclusive interaction with CEO Insights magazine.
What is the motivation that fuels your daily routines?
I realized at an early age that I wanted to start a company. As I lacked the proper credentials to launch a company on my own. My drive was strong, and with a target in mind, I got to work. And after 20 years in the industry, I found a market with enormous potential while working with a market leader. Because of this opportunity, I was able to identify a need in the market, develop a viable solution, and assemble a remarkable group of industry professionals whose associations helped me arrive at this position. The fact that I am still dedicated to my goal and making progress since the day I set out is the driving force behind everything I do.

Success does not have to be a difficult process, even though there may be difficulties along the route

You possess over two decades of experience. How has your path to success and what is your success mantra?
The road to success does not have to be extremely complicated, despite widespread opinion to the contrary. Success does not have to be a difficult process, even though there may be difficulties along the route. Simplifying things and looking at problems head-on is, in my opinion, the best way to address them. The easiest answers are sometimes discovered when one takes a step back and examines the most basic components of an issue.

Also, I think that diligent effort and concentration are necessary for resolving any task, no matter how complicated. We may conquer seemingly impossible challenges if we have a positive outlook and work relentlessly towards our goals. These two principles guide my everyday actions and are crucial to my accomplishments. I think that everything is possible for anybody
who sets their mind to it and is prepared to put in the time and effort.

How would you define Indiano as an organization and its current position in the market?
Given the dominance of Chinese suppliers in the business, Indiano's achievement in the Ferro alloys market is astounding. The company's ability to create an innovative and cost-effective formula for the products has enabled it to compete effectively with Chinese competitors, establishing us as a market leader. Our position as a key contributor to the local economy has been bolstered by the acknowledgment of the State’s Chief minister for our flagship manufacturing facility in Odisha. In addition, Indiano's dependence on low carbon ferro chrome as the company's signature product has allowed us to secure a 25 percent market share in India, showcasing our experience in supplying clients with high-quality products.

In light of your strong experience within the industry, what advice would you give to budding industry leaders?
Keeping your goal and vision statement front and centre at all times is some advice I would provide to new leaders and young business owners. The odds of success are great if you keep your focus on the end goal and stay within the parameters you've set for yourself. It's important to constantly have the company's best interests in mind, and in my opinion, turnover is vanity, profit is sanity and cash is reality. And what we need to do is build a cash rich company and make money for everybody involved.
