Chairman Eastman Group
When Mr. Jagdish Rai Singal, first encountered his entrepreneurial ideas, little did he or the people around him envisaged that he would one-day chair one of the finest industrial conglomerates in the country. What began as a cycle brake shoe factory has today expanded into the Eastman Group of companies of which he is the honorable Founder and Chairman. In less than 47 years, keeping Ludhiana as his base, Mr. Singal has built an empire that today, stands synonymous with path-breaking innovation and unwavering trust. From being a local manufacturer, his industrial ideology took the company to new pinnacles of manufacturing, supplying and exporting bicycle components, accessories, tires, tubes and batteries. His vision of labeling Eastman as a global leader in the battery manufacturing sector has made the company extend its presence overseas and reach new continents like Latin America, South America, Africa, Western Europe, and Western Asia. We owe all our success and recognition to this visionary and his ceaseless desire to create a better tomorrow.
