The IMC Ramkrishna Bajaj National Quality Trophy has been bagged by Indo Gulf Corporation, an Aditya Birla Group Company in the Manufacturing category. Certificates of Merit have been awarded to two other Aditya Birla Group Companies, namely Thai Carbon Black and Hi-Tech Carbon. Accepting the award on behalf of Indo Gulf, Mr Kumar Mangalam Birla, the Group's Chairman applauded the IMC and the Bajaj family for instituting this award which essentially aims to embed the quality mindset among corporates in India. Since the inception of the coveted wards, the Aditya Birla Group Companies have had the distinction of bagging the award thrice - Vikram Cement, Thai Acrylic Fibre and Indo Gulf have so far won this award.
Avers Mr Birla "My personal learning from the quality journey, encapsulated in a single sentence is that "Consistency is the mother of change". Our teams have worked consistently and steadfastly over the years with a focused determination to reach a level of quality, that they are now internationally benchmarkable. In sum then, what has the quality process achieved for us? We believe that every team comprises of 4 distinct types of individuals. Those who watch things happening, those who want things to happen, whose who actually make things happen and those who wonder what happened.
In fact, what the quality process does is that it fundamentally alters individual behaviour and team dynamics to dramatically improve the proportion of people who actually make things happen rather than those who want things to happen. We in the Aditya Birla Group are singularly fortunate in having a majority of people who actually make things happen, stringing the entire organization into a seamless, boundary-less cosmos, with a commonality of vision, with the customer at its heart."
