A Chemical Engineer from the prestigious UDCT Mumbai, Samir Gandhi started his career as Project Engineer with Gharda Chemicals. During his tenure of five years at Gharda Chemicals, Samir always wondered about automation in material handling of hazardous chemicals. It was his dream to have automated material handling in the industry; automatic doors for men and material movement, ramps and levelers for easy and safe loading/unloading etc, even though at that time, he did not know how and when it would be possible. On joining his father´s business of fabrication and engineering, he got the opportunity to put his thoughts on automatic doors and loading bays in action.
His passion led him to search for information on entrance automations and loading bay equipment and so he visited various companies in Europe. The visit convinced him that he had the right idea, that he was in the right place at the right time. This resulted in establishing Gandhi Automations in 1996. Today, Gandhi Automations is India´s top entrance automations and loading bay equipment company.
Currently, the Managing Director of Gandhi Automations, Samir has 23 years of experience in sales, operations and business management, 18 of which he has spent in the entrance automation and loading bay equipment industry.
