Window Magic is amongst the initial introducers of uPVC to India. Setup in 2002, “Window Magic”, a division of Window Magic India Pvt Ltd., it emerged from collaboration with the Profine Group of Germany which is the world’s largest manufacturers of uPVC profiles operating under the brand name of Kommerling. As a company today, with years of experience, they have succeeded in building up a range of state-of-the-art technologies to manufacture windows and doors, profile lamination in various colors, insect screen and glass solutions. In an exclusive tête-à-tête with SURFACES REPORTER (SR), Mr Manish Bansal, Director, Window Magic, reveals the secret behind the success of the brand and status of market at large.
How has Window Magic coped up in the months following the devastating second wave of Covid? What are your suggestion to the fellow business owners.
The second wave of Covid-19 was very challenging but surprisingly, from June onwards we have seen an upward move in the sales. Though the market has not completely recovered to the Pre-Covid levels, it’s moving up quickly. We have adapted to overcome the economic challenges linked to the lockdowns thereby limiting the economic impact. However, we do see that customers are also not delaying their purchase decisions, it seems that the fear of the Covid’s third wave is pushing them towards faster actions which is giving a boost to the sales as well as helping the market to recover.

As Covid took over our lives and changed our way of living and doing business in the last one and half year, we saw that companies have started running through the bird’s eye view. They are keeping track of every minute detail. So my suggestions especially for the new entrepreneurs of the MSME sectors are to keep a check on the business at every level. Make sure that you have all the reports and facts with you and to review work every week. This small step will help you to approach head-on, any issue and you will be prepared beforehand.
Though business was normal all over India, but due to the lack of awareness, basic facilities and strict Covid 19 lockdown norms, the Northeast regions, some parts of Rajasthan, and a few tier-1 and tier-2 cities had to face challenging situations in order to continue business.
