This week we spoke to Pritesh Amin, the co-owner of a furniture manufacturing company. It started from mattresses and is now producing fitments that have both quality and affordable prices.
He gave us some insight into his world of furniture with this short interview:
Please tell a bit about yourself and your business
I’m 35 years old and started the furniture company in 2015 with my brother.
What inspired your business idea?
We were inspired by the need to supply school kids with an affordable school mattress to sleep on.
Who is your biggest inspiration?
My biggest inspiration would have to be my dad and mum.
What challenges do you feel small businesses face?
The larger enterprises have bigger buying power and flood the market with much cheaper prices leaving no room for others to thrive.
In your downtime, what do you do to relax and unwind?
I can’t relax and have no downtime with my kids (chuckles)
What funding sources helped you start your business?
We had no funding assistance, we had to fund the business on our own.
How did it feel when you got your first client?
It felt amazing! It raised my confidence levels up and gave me the extra drive to push for more clients.
What is your go-to meal that is your happy place?
My happy place is when I’m eating prawns.
What would you like to see your business achieve this year?
I hope to open another branch.
Any words of wisdom that you would like to share with those who dream of their own businesses?
I’d let everyone know that persistence is key!
With his persistent drive, we hope that the business succeeds even beyond his expectations!
