Guljit Singh

Executive Chairman

 

Guljit has over 42 years of successful global business experience. He took early retirement from being a Director/Global Advisor at a large US-based global manufacturer in the Chicago area to pursue other challenging opportunities after working with them for over 39 years in positions of increasing responsibility, starting as a Design Engineer. During this period, the company grew from a small US start-up to a large global manufacturer of disposable medical devices. Over the years, Guljit’s focus shifted from the USA to Europe and eventually to Asia-Pacific and South America, with a proven record of maintaining and sustaining the progress achieved and expanding in all markets. He has traveled extensively including to countries such as China, Mexico, India, Spain, Costa Rica, Ireland, Thailand, and Malaysia. An engineer and manager by training, he played a major role in setting up three large entities/businesses in the USA, Europe, and Asia, creating hundreds of new jobs. The last major undertaking – a greenfield project with complete responsibility – was the development of a manufacturing base in the Asia-Pacific region starting with a business case leading to the setting up of a world-class medical device plant in North India in record time and on budget. All major projects throughout the world were for strategic growth. Guljit has extensive experience in all aspects of running a global business – business and quality regulations, setting up legal entities, business acquisitions, business restructurings, marketing, legal, financing, manufacturing, human resources, information technology, marketing, product development, land acquisition, government relations, etc. The early part of his career was spent in designing and building highly specialized, proprietary manufacturing equipment and plant start-ups.
