THE JOURNEY

Coming from a family where financial resources are limited, Pramod built P2S International solely on his own without any external support. Pramod was a mechanical engineer by profession. The zeal to start his own business was always there in him. 

Because of the financial constraint at home, Pramod started working on the idea of P2S International while continuing his job. Finally, the creative mind came up with this unique idea of making attractive tables, chairs and other furniture by recycling old plastic drums and tires.

Recalling the hardship of those days, Pramod says, “I decided to start a business without telling anyone at home, but I didn’t have the capital. The only thing I could do was to use my knowledge and learn further to enhance it.”

Pramod’s creative mind wandered in search of ideas for his business after which he came up with the idea of recycling old drums into useful furniture products. To research thoroughly, Pramod started watching YouTube videos and reading blogs.
