OUR BELIEF


Sajjan Dokania
Managing Director
Research, Development and Innovation.
Creating innovative products to meet the needs of working professionals and homeowners across the whole of India is a prerequisite to strengthening our market position in the furniture industry. In a rapidly changing world, our culture and passion for innovation and consistent investment in research and development is essential to the growth of new product concepts, processes and production methods that are not only in line with our business objectives but also our long term sustainability ambitions. Here at Durian we have specialised teams of engineers and researchers who have diverse cultural, educational and competency backgrounds which add creativity to our products and add value to our manufacturing techniques. We try to serve all the different customer demands of design, comfort and style to the best of our capabilities while keeping an economic price to complement it. This is only made possible by the prototyping we conduct, array of studies we conduct and finally the precise manoeuvres of execution in manufacturing which we have mastered after all these decades of experience. We truly believe that there is always a better way forward and because of that, we will never stop discovering.

Technology
In this modern era of growing technology, we try to incorporate all of its advancements into our production methods as well as our product offerings. All our manufacturing units are comprised of machines and computer systems that are brought in from across the globe and that offer the most efficient working with the least amounts of wastage. We believe that if technology is used in the correct way it can enhance our productivity and also reduce costs via maximizing material usage and minimizing labour time and effort. With this belief in mind we travel all over the world to study and learn from others and have always maintained international standards when it comes to manufacturing techniques. Even within the organization all the employees make use of the most advanced operating systems that are offered to manage data, information, logistics and much more. This allows better working, time management and finally efficient delivery, all which directly benefit our central motive- to satisfy the customer. Going ahead we are taking up projects of creating social chains, professional networks and collaborations with IT companies, which we believe will help us set our best foot forward into the technological revolution.
