How do you see the hospitality industry as a key market for Trivedi Group?
Hospitality has always been one of the key industries for Trivedi Group. Having a knack for the luxury elements, our group has been a preferred choice by the clients globally. The Trivedi Group has catered capaciously to key areas in the hospitality segments such as restaurants, entrances, and lobbies.
Design being of utmost importance to the global hospitality sector, what trends do you see in the Indian hospitality segment regarding stone artwork & showpieces? How are you at Trivedi Group catering to the same?
A large chain of hotels expanding in India have their design lines inspired by the parent international group and approach us for modern inlays and facades.
Additionally, we have seen fairly a large demand for palatial hotels which are more unique to India. Such projects associate with us for a larger stone supply which includes hollow stone columns, Jali work, etc. The Trivedi Group is widely known to have the best-in-industry machinery and provides quality products for such large-scale projects. Furnishing, flooring and facades; we have catered capaciously to varied stonework needs of the hospitality industry.
Experiential hotels & resorts in various destinations desire various SKUs from facade to furnishings to table-tops. How is Trivedi Group equipped to provide customised solutions to the clients?
All large projects require customisation from design to material and even fixing details. The Trivedi Group is well equipped to cater to all customisations. We have also taken up complete turnkey projects around the globe and delivered the highest quality on time. Be it the Oberoi Hotel in Mumbai or the Canyon Land Resort in Utah, we have built, assembled, packaged and installed finest stone creations globally.
With several commercial real-estate projects halted due to the pandemic, how has the supply-demand dynamics changed for Trivedi Group? How are you devising innovative products, eg, germ-free surfaces, minimalistic designs, etc. to meet the current hygienic products demand?
With the unfortunate pandemic in the world, manual processing has completely stalled and has thus been favourable for machine-driven firms like the Trivedi Group. We have seen an extreme hike in demand from time cautious projects which no longer can be dependent on the general unorganised practices of the stone trade. As a measure for hygiene, we are coating a Japanese sealer over all the products that come in human contact. This also works as an anti-bacterial up to 12 months from application.
Future roadmap for Trivedi Group
We have constructively utilised the abundant time during the countrywide lockdown and have come up with various manufacturing techniques. We have currently developed a new lightweight and easy to install solutions in stone which will drastically reduce labour requirements on-site and also be more cost and time-effective.
With close to half a century’s worth of experience in the field, we are looking forward to continuing to make a mark for residences, commercial buildings and monuments around the world.
