The successful entrepreneur Chaitanya Jain, Managing Director of Kusum Industries has a very humble background.He always wanted to be an entrepreneur since his childhood. After completing his Industrial engineering education, Chaitanya decided to become an entrepreneur with the aim of providing employment to as many people as possible. In 2001, he started his venture “Boni Foods” with a capital of Rs 20000 which deals in manufacturing of packet food. He poured his four previous years in the business but unfortunately that business didn’t work, but the passion to become an entrepreneur was still alive.
The era of infrastructure development was in full swing in the year 2004. The new government has taken the charge in the state and the focus on strengthening of infrastructure was on the topmost priority.
During that time, he got an opportunity to run a PCC Electricity Poles Factory on a leasehold basis by M.P State Electricity Company. The PCC Poles are used in the Rural Electrification and there was a huge requirement of the product in the country and Foreseeing the market potential of the product, he decided to get into the deep research of the manufacturing technology of the product. He got to know the in and outs of the business. Initially, he dealt with all the departments of Business viz Purchase, Production, Finance, Marketing, and Sales.
As in the industry of manufacturing PCC electricity poles, the technology of manufacturing was very obsolete and the peer members of the industry were following the same old-fashioned methodology. This made him look forward to the advanced and improvised system of manufacturing and then he started visiting different places where advanced system existed. He adopted the new system and erected his maiden owned new plant with all latest methodology. His plant was then considered one of its own kind and the first advanced plant in the state. That really was the proudest moment for him and that scaled up his confidence level
The business was scalable and then he started his journey of expanding the business. Presently he is having five manufacturing plants across the state of Madhya Pradesh and serves all the three discoms of the state.
