First of all I would like to thank you for going through details about my Merchandising services. My motto is to support true and genuine merchandising services through Indian economy in various products.
I wish to give you a little brief about my vision behind the establishment of my merchandises services resume which could be achieved only with due support from the inspiration and support as well GOOD BAD UGLY & BEAUTIFUL experiences from my clients & vendors as well people like you who have appreciated/depreciated my talents in same trade.
After my schooling & ambitious life I started my career as an employee with an Indian Star Trading House M/s. Eastern Cottage Industries in the year 1988, as a management trainee. Here my main responsibilities involved taking care of all vendors, products supply and sourcing all type of products from India's different states, to fulfill the requirements of the company 's international clients and taking care of all export commodities, board Liaoning jobs with the Custom, Banking and other foreign exchange departments to update the company’s record as their authorized executive.
After having an experience of approximate 15 years with Indian export & trading houses, with the support of my certain clients I decided to fulfill my dream of starting an own exclusive Designer Export House as well merchandising service in India. In the year 2003 I started as part time with my running job to act as a representative to take care their merchandises supply to their nations with the support of my overseas International import and export houses contacts, who appreciated and encouraged me to start this business in India, as their merchandising agent and to take care of their reasonable merchandising export-import in this country.
With my strong expertise and product vision of different merchandises sourcing from India’s various states, and daily dealing with various government department Liaoning through Custom and shipping & air agencies , many Indian exporters gave me the opportunity to work for their organization as their business consultant for marketing & sourcing & Quality control execution. I have also participated in all international exhibitions in Europe, U.S.A, Africa, Middle East & SAARC continents to boost their merchandise On behalf of their company as product development-marketing Designer consultant, during same period I got the employment opportunity to work in Milan/Italy on behalf of Indian export houses and took care of their designing and marketing in the entire European sector in the year 2001. Till today BECAUSE of my expertise & name is very popular with world 's leading import houses in fashion and house ware & Gift ware concepts such as INDITEX Group (ZARA, Massimo dutti), El Corte Ingles, Monsoon, KARE Designs, Pier 1 Import, TWO’s Company, TJ MAX,.Hobby Lobby, Rubinstein Arry, Karstadt Qualle, and many small medium bulk and chain of stores groups, who were very well versed with my merchandising execution.
Since I was taking care of Indian exporters, all marketing and product development execution, I got the opportunity to participate in world's leading trade shows and export promotion tours on behalf of Indian export houses such as, U.S. Art Handicrafts and Consumable goods shows in various U.S. states, Europe's Leading trade shows in Spain, France, Germany, Holland, Portugal, Italy, Belgium, and U.K. etc, as well in Hong Kong House ware-giftware-Building hardware and fashion jewelry shows, China Canton shows, Middle East Dubai Hardware-giftware-consumable-food agro and African Trade events in West-Eastern-Central and South African Zone.,, where each country's economy knowledge guided me regarding the necessity of a country and what their requirements were regarding various products i.e. consumable, food agro, art handicrafts-fashion accessories , building hardware or any other allied raw materials etc.
In the year 2003, again I got the opportunity to work for the African, Asian (SAARC Nation) Latin American and Middle East countries and their demand for consumable goods. Where I spent few years in Dubai to execute all international and Indian products for caption countries and did huge business for Indian export-import houses who were running corporate offices from the Dubai market. Here I also established a strong business network in these continents and undertook extensive business promotion traveling to achieve a whopping approx. 25 million dollar sales Target, on behalf of a Dubai based company for exporting Building Hardware & allied commodities , Plumbing Sanitary fitting, Household goods and appliances , consumable goods and food agro commodities etc. in the year 2004-2005.
In the same year I found a drastic change in Indian economy where there was a huge import rise and the percentage of exports plunged because of China's entry in the international market. Consequently, the world market got disturbed just because of stiff competition in all the countries worldwide. Here I once again got the opportunity to work with many countries - their specific and popular products, and launched them in the Indian economy as their representative. I took care of their sales with Indian Import houses. I also participated in all potential trade exhibition and guided them to promote their products in different states, and have been working for the promotion of import of Olive Oil , fruit juices, Soya Products , Cosmetic products, Wine Bear , Dry fruits, Spices, confectionery, Machinery and many other merchandises for Indian economy. After gaining knowledge about different countries economic vision, I decided that I could easily ascertain what product one economy needed and what was the user buying power ratio, where all terms and conditions and export-import elements were arranged by myself catering to buyer-seller absolute demand. I am having my own philosophy of product placement Designing & Quality Control opinion in each economy according to my 23 years expertise. In spite of having commercial education background I believe in practical presence of mind and decision taking attitude instead of restricting oneself to theoretical philosophy, particularly when the economy is always changing. In such circumstances it is always the experience that can work better than where philosophical and fundamental explanations.
Today, proudly, I can hold various merchandises because of my personal expertise in export import trade of various commodities. Being an representative I may only can challenge with my various years of experience in each product that the direct manufacturer-vendor do can ensure minimum costing, right delivery time and better quality to satisfy the importer. This importer friendly concept could also help him sell the product of his Country/Market without any stiff competition in our country. Here in India, due to the influx of mediators in product replacement, the importers are importing the goods at heavy value costing. Unfortunately then they face a very competitive market when they sell their product which discourages them at the very onset. My personal expertise has been participating in fairs all over the world for many years. My main motto is to support all genuine manufacturers and suppliers. The Indian selling cost is always higher than Chinese/Indonesian/Vietnamese/Philippines/Thailand & other market, despite strong manpower in the country. My Merchandising business aims to eliminate the unnecessary mediator elements obstructing the dealings of all these merchandises and to support export-import from this country with true and genuine dealing. With my expertise I may only assure & promise that my expertise & vision as representative could compete with Chinese/Indonesian/Vietnamese/Thailand economy ? And other markets with regard to most of the products produced by Indian economy.
Presently the growing competition in India and abroad strives for controlling export elements like better costing, better quality and right delivery timing. I understand that you would too like to appoint a reliable person to act as a profitable merchandising fellow. Taking into consideration my thorough knowledge of various business, I believe that I would positively meet all your requirements. My many years of experience in dealing with various continents in various trades ever since my founding and service period, makes me quite capable. I can promise you reliable services in regard to prices, terms and freights, as well as other parameters of negotiation to launch in this economy as well as to sell from this economy to other overseas nations . I shall therefore be pleased to accept your reasonable terms & conditions if you consider to appoint me as your sole merchandising fellow in this economy ?? Where I would be prepared to buy/execute your orders to the best of my capacity and surely live up to your expectations.
