the Story of Trinity NDTians
Mr. Ravi Kumar & Mr. Shivakumar
Two fascinating Engineers, with a one year age gap between them, coming from a very modest family, despite all the challenges and hurdles created one of the unique organisations in Non Destructive Testing, Trinity NDT.
Shiva Kumar, the younger and a Mechanical Engineer and Ravi Kumar, the elder of the two and a Metallurgical Engineer, moved from Bank to Bank in the year 2000-2001 for a small loan of Rs 15,000 without much success. This despite the fact the hype by the government agencies that loan could be made available without a collateral. The Two brothers even went to the banks with three government employees as sureties, but still that did not work out for clearing the outstanding payments and the first big cheque was released of Rs 14,700.
Shiva says, “We innovated by doing all the tests at the customers place thereby cutting on the transportation and the electricity cost working in the customers premises from 6.00 pm till 2.00 am. The day was used for the Business Development activities and getting more business. Money was a scarce resource and we started maintaining the daily expenses and we still have details of how many times we would have changed the clutch wire or the spark plugs of the scooter.” The brother believed in the philosophy that, ” chasing the vision is important, not the money; the money will come anyways sooner or later”.
In 2010 the brother constructed a small office, but as already mentioned getting the allotment letter was a them. At times the loan application was rejected because the two brothers came from another neighboring state. The brothers kept trying for a loan from the period 1998-2003, and the more they were turned off, the more persistent they became.
The recession had hit the market and this recession turned out to be a boon for them and some of the closing units were selling their assets and equipment. The first equipment they bought was a machine from Coimbatore, which they bought if for Rs 50,000 and arranged money @5% from the market. They had nobody to seek help from as they came from a poor and humble background. This was the turning point and the only fall back was the confidence and the job in case they failed.
The amount of Self confidence the brothers developed was nurtured and strengthened by the way they responded to the circumstances and how they looked at themselves in spite of them. With an additional investment of a second hand Bajaj Chetak scooter, the two worked round the clock, sleeping only for 3-4 hours, starting at 5.30 am and ending the day post midnight.
A travel of more than 120 Kms daily. With no office it was becoming difficult to build credibility so in 2003 they applied for a piece of land and though the land was allocated by KSIDC, but even after getting the land the two brother were not happy as there was no money for the construction, which they were to construct in 45 days.
Help came from unexpected quarters, as they say, “When things have to happen the entire Universe conspires to help you”, the customers pitched in by tedious job and meanwhile their file at the Head office got lost and the cold shouldering they got from the officials was a everyday blow – they went to the Police station, Courts and even politicians but to no avail till the time a gentleman officer joined and helped them prepare a new file. Then only things moved positively for them.
Today as the brother look back their struggle with banks and state run organisations, they are amply satisfied with the creation of their organisation with not even a single employee in 2010, the staff strength now is 50+ and Presence in Nigeria, Cameroon, Ghana and Kenya and an enviable customer base of GE, Indian Railways, Dubai Airport, BHEL, NTPC and many more, they look at future with optimism and take on more oncoming challenges with earnest.
