The recent COVID-19 hit period has been a bit tough with certain slowdown in the two months of lockdown. However, UV Technologies has averted any significant impact on their business through innovation and adaptation. For example, due to limited industry meeting points and networking opportunities, they managed the situation with social media, direct contact with customers and advertising.
“The lockdown gave time to innovative people to remodel their businesses and make wise investment decisions. Investment in the latest and best equipment may look expensive initially, but the high productivity will pay off quickly. It will generate far less waste which will help pay for itself. Progressive businesses must stay up to date with the most modern trends and implement new technology. They should not rely on second hand obsolete equipment, which may set them back and hamper their growth,” advises Abhay.
