Team IC: Tell us how Kishco came about?
NJ: Prior to 1950, there was this landmark store ‘Kishco’ , in marine drive that sold cutlery. Back then, we were looking to acquire new brands to expand our business interests. The brand ‘Kishco’ which stood for quality, is what captivated us, and we decided to procure the store and the brand. The rest is history; we worked on the brand, revamped the heritage store, and made it luxurious and contemporary. We expanded our product range –we sell cutlery, flatware, hotelware, gift items – both in stainless steel and silver-plated metals. Our products stand for quality and elegance.

It’s been an exciting journey and a challenging one too! I have to add that I never turned away from my fitness profession, I just balance and manage my time so that I can do both. When I am constantly learning, embibing, interacting, inspiring and contributing, I feel productive and happy.
