Mr. Jagdish Thakkar

Achiever's Success Story

Founder and Managing Director, Meet Marketing (India) Pvt. Ltd. and Benchmark Poly Technik Pvt. Ltd.

Mr. Jagdish Thakkar is the Founder and Managing Director of Meet Marketing (India) Pvt. Ltd. and Benchmark Poly Technik Pvt. Ltd. With over 30 years of experience, his name is respected in PVC raw material industry. He was born in a village near Patan and little did he know he will end up creating one of the largest plastic additives distribution house in India. He started his career by working as an office caretaker but quickly learned the ins and out of the plastic business.

During that time the plastic industry was unorganised and lacked trusted suppliers. With a vision to fill the gap in the industry, he quit his job to start his own business. The beginning was hard but with perseverance and sheer hard work for over 20 years he has come far in his journey. Today, the company that he created is regarded as the most trusted supplier in the industry.

Jagdish Thakkar has helped uplift the corporation through trust, leadership qualities, and commitment towards both his customers and suppliers. He believes that no target can be achieved without a team and thus maintains a positive, harmonious environment within the corporation where each member can thrive. He also knows that for a corporation to grow it has to change with time. He continually brings innovation, implements the latest technology, and facilitates changes.

With Jagdish’s foresight, he established a company name Benchmark Poly Technik which manufactures ready – to – use  unique additives or compounds. The prime purpose of this company is to free the manufacturer from the hassle of procuring and processing multiple products for their finished goods. This innovative solution has helped many customers smoothen their process and focus on other key areas of their business development like marketing and new product development.

Jagdish’s new vision is to expand his business at Pan India and international level. To achieve this goal he is developing and expanding the company’s human resources. For him, his staff members are his family and strength. He is always open to new ideas and always listen to suggestions of others. He also encourages his team members to learn new skills and join development courses. He is a big believer in ‘learning never stops.’ At age 40, he enrolled in management training at IRMA. He takes a variety of courses here and there and does a lot of research about the industry. To keep up with trends he participates in international exhibitions, webinars, and virtual seminars.

Jagdish actively participates in philanthropy. He believes that education is the best gift you can give someone and a necessity for growth in India. He provides for education to children of all the low – income employees in his corporation. Moreover, he has made several donations to Rapar Kanya Chhatrapati in Banaskantha, and Patan Boarding School. Apart from education, he has contributed to providing basic necessities in his village and Gaushala (Cowshed) for animal welfare. After retirement, his goal is the welfare of his surrounding mainly through increased education of poor children.
