Very often, people get stuck at the inception of their professional career. They are in the throes of a dilemma between a safe and stable job with the comfort of fixed wages but stunted growth and taking the pathway of being a precarious entrepreneur, that can make the person most powerful or even can turn him/her into a zero. During these times, you need the guide and support of your near and dear ones. Mr Sangram Kumar Das was lucky enough to get the proper guidance from his knowledgeable father, Shri Himanshu Kumar Das. Therefore, today Mr Sangram is the M.D. of the two most successful running businesses in Odisha- Hari Udyog Private Limited and Hari Marine Private Limited. Moreover, he is also a member of many other business ventures like Hari Distributors, Orissa Rubber Products, S.R. Aqua Products, Hari Motors and Hari Nageswar.
Since childhood, Mr Sangram had always dreamt of becoming an entrepreneur. His father perpetually acted like a catalyst to his dreams, encouraging him to start his business rather than going for a job. The main reason being that he wanted his son to be powerful and known to the people of Odisha. Therefore in 1989, with great support from his father, Mr Sangram started the Orissa Rubber Unit.
Since then, slowly but gradually, he forayed into diversified businesses such as prawn farming, dealership of Honda, Aqua Products and many more. However, the breakthrough year for Mr Sangram was in 2006 when he started Hariplast Private Limited. Within a few years, the company became one of the leading pipe manufacturers of Odisha. Eventually, in 2016, Mr Sangram ventured into marine exports by floating the company Hari Marine Private Limited, which too became an instant success.
When asked about his biggest accomplishment in life, Mr Sangram said, “The biggest success story in my life is that I have been able to feed the lives of nearly 1000 families. What else do you want? The pride and satisfaction I have by providing employment to nearly 1000 employees, thereby making their and their family life happy, is unexplainable. My employees are my families; without them, I am nothing.”
A businessman never stops. That’s what we learn from the ambitious life of Mr Sangram. Even after venturing into several businesses and being successful with all of them, he wants to venture into the Home Gas Pipeline connection in the future.
