Sharing the success story of Nalco Chand said that when the global economy was reeling under economic slowdown, with the metal sector being affected the worst; Nalco took a conscious decision of introducing an all weather business model that focuses on bench marking and quantification.

Addressing the NamCon-2019 on “Weatherproof organisation: Challenging the Challenge”, Nalco CMD said: “Achievements give motivation and purpose gives objectivity to any organization but to remain sustainable and successful, business organizations need to have insulation from detrimental effects of business environment. One must remain well aware in advance of the changes in technology, statutory regulations and preferences of the customers.”
