Every year, to recognise excellence in management, entrepreneurship and leadership, AIMA confers awards on distinguished professionals and organisations that have made outstanding contribution.
On receiving the award, Gupta said, “I am delighted and honoured that I have been conferred this prestigious award by AIMA, which is a recognition of our continued effort to provide wide range of unmatched and superior quality products to customers across the world while raising benchmarks year after year.
The award is also an acknowledgement of the spirit of our entrepreneurship as we remain young, energetic and firmly focused on research, innovation and development with an unflinching commitment to ‘Make in India’. We will continue to create value for our stakeholders, make meaningful contribution to the communities we serve, and develop new products as part of our endeavour to address the changing preferences of our customers across the globe.”
He added, “ I would also like to advise the budding entrepreneurs to open their vistas, have a clear vision and take risks because success comes to those who are willing to try and risk and fail and stand up to do it all over again.”
