“Knowledge can only be got in one way, the way of experience; there is no other way to know”
42 years back, a young sportsman, Tarun Mullick, a Junior Bengal TT champion as well as a National rank holder,was dreaming to be the national TT Champion. However, circumstances forced him to give up his first love, Table Tennis and look for opportunities to make a living. But he refused to be another job seeker as he had faith in his ability to understand consumer needs, his leadership skills and had the confidence to effectively and efficiently meet consumer needs.
And the brand CLUBB was born, the dream of a focused and visionary young man. He never looked back thereafter. Crossing each hurdle as it came but never wavering from the cherished goal of manufacturing quality products matching the best in the market, upgrading them and increasing the range as well. Today, CLUBB products match the standards of some of the best such products in the world but CLUBB offers the products at prices that are a dream.
It is his ability to understand the pulse of the people, their desire for quality branded products but at moderate prices, that were the challenges that Tarun Mullick faced and the brand he created, CLUBB, stood the test of time with blazing colours and can match any international brand in terms of quality. CLUBB never advertised but their sales have shown phenomenal growth, year after year, because of the confidence and trust of customers in CLUBB products, and the word of mouth goodwill created by the customers among their friends. CLUBB believes in consumer satisfaction and goes out of its way to redress consumer complaint, even if there be any.
CLUBB believes in innovation and adopting new technology at competitive cost, to sustain growth through fulfilling the challenges of changing consumer preferences.
CLUBB believes in and always follows, “You may see no road, but then you can create one”
Since inception, CLUBB, (now comes under MSME, being micro), believed in being a change agent, supporting and mentoring young, ambitious and aspiring entrepreneurs. CLUBB was and still is engaged in training untrained semi-literate young men and women to attain skills as part of “Capacity Building Exercise”. This enables them to be financially self-sufficient and attain self-confidence.
We have been doing this for almost TWO DECADES, much before Corporate Social Responsibility became a legal requirement. Even though we are not required even now to have any Corporate Social Responsibility program, it is an integral part of our corporate philosophy.
We are focused in our objective of promoting inclusive growth through all our activities, including CSR, to ensure that all our activities are geared to fulfill the needs of the community.
After all, there cannot be islands of prosperity among poverty, unemployment and economic hardship. We believe we must all contribute in our small way to reduce and ultimately eliminate poverty and economic hardship.
