The dynamic President of Shingora, Mr. Amit Jain, came armed with an global outlook based on international education in Engineering and Business from Kentucky and work exposure. It was his toil that saw the company go from a handloom centric operation to a digitised and system driven industry with a presence not just in India but in countries around the world. Introduction of shuttle-less looms, electronic jacquard machines and increasing exports can all be attributed to him. And it was these changes that slowly changed the perception of Shingora from a local brand to one with global reach. Always interested in keeping abreast of the developments in the field of textiles abroad, he is continually dedicated to the cause of taking the company higher.
The youngest member of the Jain family, Mr. Anuj Jain's competence lies in his adept handling of financial, commercial, technological and compliance activities. An integral part of Shingora's growth story, he joined the business in 2001 and has since proven invaluable. It was his untiring efforts that earned the company SA 8000 and Oeko-Tex compliances. Naturally inclined to all things technological and with his scientific disposition, he introduced and put into action international-level management information systems at Shingora.
