BY TEAM CW
Al Fara’a Group’s operation was commenced in India by Nitesh Gangaramani, director – PAN India Management in 2011. The idea of entering the Indian market was to create awareness about the delivery of integrated turnkey solutions to valued clients and provide value engineering by using extensive in-house knowledge base. Gangaramani, with his rich experience of over 10 years in the UAE handling multidisciplinary and sophisticated projects, has contributed tremendously towards the growth and success of Al Fara’a in India. He holds a Bachelors Degree in Civil Engineering and has completed his MBA in Construction Management and Finance from Manchester University, London. He has magnificently formulated and crafted various policies and procedures to bring the group to a place where it proudly stands today. He also brings with him expertise garnered following a diverse and dynamic pathway to success besides his grassroot level knowledge about the construction and related activities to this industry. The group is aptly spearheaded by a personality like Gangaramani who stays updated about latest happenings in the industry, domestically and internationally. Moreover, he is the proud recipient of the “Young Entrepreneur of the Year” award for the year 2012 and has also bagged the “Best Construction Executive of the Year” award from the Estate Awards in 2013 for his outstanding achievements. For Gangaramani, construction is all about passion; when there is passion, nothing seems impossible!
Gangaramani says, “Initially, the task of convincing clients to award projects to us was challenging as we had no local exposure and were new in India. However, with our proven track record of achievements in the UAE, we were awarded our first job by Patel Realty for their township in Neo Town, Bengaluru. They adored our work and with their confidence which, I must say, make a difference for a new organisation to grow and flourish in the industry, especially, construction.”
With their continued trust and confidence in us, Patel Realty conferred Al Fara’a with two more projects in the same vicinity and after that there was no turning back. With our focused mission and vision, we kept delivering our best and till today have executed Rs 1,000 crore worth of projects. At present, we have around 15 projects in Maharashtra and Karnataka region and are not leaving any stone unturned to bag more and more projects. Our projects truly testify to Al Fara’a’s unique blend of skills, integrated service capabilities and the expertise of management and staff. Our list of valued and prestigious clients include Prestige, TATA Housing, Mantri Developers, JP Infra, Kumar Builders, DNR Corp, Lodha Group and many more.
After the completion of the first year in India, the company decided to provide aluminum and glass solutions to clients and customers and set up an aluminium and glass factory in Mumbai. It has executed and delivered prestigious projects to clients like L&T, Reliance, Lodha, etc. Soon, it established one more factory at Manesar, Gurgaon, and both these factories cater to the needs of Maharashtra, Karnataka and Delhi NCR region.
The aim has always been to furnish clients with quality projects of international standards, and importantly, timely delivery. Repeated orders from clients show the trust they have conferred on them. “We have made it a point to not ignore anything that adds value and one that brings a smile on the faces of clients,” he adds.
The company has started an infrastructure division which will execute the works of elevated corridor projects, Nagpur Metro and government mass housing projects this financial year. “Our growth graph last four years has been consistently upward; I am hopeful that with the treasured trust and confidence of our esteemed clients and customers and with the support of our prized workforce, Al Fara’a Group is all set to attain the greater heights of success and ultimately set a benchmark,” he ends.
