How will these products ensure smooth and uninterrupted construction? Can you give a brief about your most sought-after products?
UGA products are designed to be utilised at any project stage to ensure smooth and uninterrupted construction, be it the ongoing precast construction stage or after completion, post-installation step. Our building industry practices core cutting for cables and pipes through walls. Therefore, our most sought out products are GPD rubber press / RRD annular seals) that are made of high-grade EPDM rubbers.
Can you shed some light on the recent international exhibitions to be participated in by UGA? What products will be presented, and consequently how will those align with the construction market?
UGA India started its operations in Nov 2020 and has not participated in any international exhibitions. We are looking for an exhibition platform where the crowd of all 3Cs (Client / Consultant / Contractor) of the construction industry will be present to spread awareness effectively about this unique and new sealing technology across India.
UGA is primarily known for “Sealing the Impossible”. Our products can seal all the cable and pipe entries per customer requirements. UGA has a wide range of sealing products that can incorporate BKD and GPD / RRD sealing systems post-construction.
How have operations been impacted due to the market headwinds faced by the industry on account of COVID-19? With the pandemic easing, what is therefore the recovery path?
Coronavirus has primarily impacted the growth of almost every country and is responsible for the slump in GDP worldwide. However, India has not been affected mainly in comparison to other countries. Nearly every industry sector has seen a fall in their sales and revenue. India’s GDP growth has fallen to 4.7% in the third quarter of 2020. Shutting down steel factories has damaged the supply chain resulting in a drastic surge in raw materials prices. Due to this outbreak, almost 80% of Indian companies have witnessed cash flow difficulty, and over 50% face operational issues. Businesses that had just started moving back to normal after the first wave were hit hard by the second wave, which was particularly challenging and disrupted the normal functioning of businesses.
Now, almost after one and a half years of lockdown, businesses are coming back on track. The recovery path includes internal and external factors such as fund investment and changing daily business practices like stock inventories, supply chain management, etc., to adapt to the new normal. I think the primary step we should take is to ensure that our company workforce must be 100% vaccinated to avoid further interruption in company operations since they form the company’s backbone. The second thing that needs to be ensured is that the government plays an active yet critical role in pulling the economy and businesses out of losses by recognising the need and opportunity for a sustainable recovery of local businesses.
How are the cost and quality of products affected due to their German manufacturing?
The products manufactured in Germany have their reputation because of the unique product design and quality. German manufacturing companies try to provide the best quality at affordable prices.
