Jagdish Jaiswal, Owner, Titan Ceramic and Cement Centre (TC&CC)
Titan Ceramic and Cement Centre has been in the cement business for more than a couple of decades and is the retailer for UltraTech and Birla White cement; they cater only to the Mumbai region. According to
Jagdish Jaiswal, owner, TC&CC both UltraTech and Birla
are the largest selling brands in India. "PPC grade cement is sold more as compared to any other category, and OPC grade 53 has a limited demand. Our monthly dispatch is 500 mt UltraTech and we do not stock grey cement. We also get a lot of support from our manufacturers," Jagdish says. He further adds, "The only thing I would like to point out is that our only our commission should be percentage rather than per bag based. The only time we face delays is during the maintenance of plants which happens once in a year." Speaking on GST, he says, "GST will enable a free flow of cement from neighbouring states like Gujrat and Silvassa where the rates are much lower and will regularise the markets competition."
Dealers and stockists are vital links between the cement industry and its customers. Being in constant touch with the end-users, they are the pulse of the industry. We bring their suggestions, expectations and much more.
