1 My founder studied law but never practised. Instead, he chose to learn trade, began as a peon with a trader and stayed in a warehouse with his wife. Post his business success, he became a friend and a neighbour of Dhirubhai for several years.

2 As my founder learnt the business from Germans, he branded his product in German but it sounds truly Indian.

3 My founder's son, who is my present Chairman, secured a top-5 rank in IIT entrance but chose to join Mumbai University for his engineering. Post his masters in USA, he began his career in a global pharma giant.

4 I took 45 years to reach first ₹1000 crore in revenue. The next ₹1000 crore came in 6 years and over the next 6 years I managed to cross ₹5000 crore with higher profit margins.

5 No wealth creation study in India is complete without me. In my 30 years of listing, I have delivered 30 per cent+ CAGR returns and in the last 1/3/5/10 years period too, an unmatchable consistency.
