Gilco Global: A Pre-eminent Building Mobility Solutions Provider in India
The series of economic disasters brought forth by the pandemic forced many businesses across the globe to shut down. While many entrepreneurs failed to withstand the catastrophe, only some emerged triumphantly. They served as a testament to the kind of resilience an entrepreneur must possess in order to be perennially successful.
Gaurav Moudigil and Aman Moudgil are two such entrepreneurs who have not only overcome the economic absurdities but have also taken their business to a new level. Their company Gilco Global is a sought-after Building Mobility Solutions Provider in India. It offers an array of building mobility amenities designed to cater to almost every industry segment.
Gilco Global’s Diverse Service Portfolio
Gilco Global specializes in mobility solutions like elevators, car elevators, automated car parking solutions, moving walks, dumbwaiters, escalators, car docks, etc. Each of its products and services is designed to meet the requirements of urban infrastructure. By offering customized solutions, the company aims at catering to the likes of hotels, commercial sectors, residential & housing structures, hospitals, industrial sectors, etc. The brand’s construction background gives it an upper hand at handling client issues with ease and efficiency.
The company also provides automatic baggage handling systems, mechanical sweepers, gate seating, baggage scanning, and specialized equipment for ground handling for the aviation sector. “We are committed to the sincere business and customers’ satisfaction with strategic alliances with leading solution providers from Europe & Australia,” says Aman Moudgil, Founder & CEO of Gilco Global.
Gilco Global’s Inception & Success Story
Gilco Global was founded in 2014 by Aman Moudgil and Gaurav Moudgil through a collaboration with ORONA S. Co op, a renowned Spanish elevator group. Along with prior experience in construction, Gaurav and Aman both have specialized in Engineering Design & Construction Project Management. This gave them a better understanding of the technological requirements and client expectations in the Indian market. In addition, their father, Sh. Deepak Moudgil, helped them set up their operations. This gave them a much-needed head start in the business.
Despite the good launchpad, Gaurav and Aman had to face many challenges in the initial stages. For starters, creating resources as per the market requirements was tough. The biggest challenge, however, was building brand awareness for ORONA. ORONA is regarded as one of the leading elevator companies in the world, with a network of over 2,50,000 solutions across 100 countries. ORONA also has the largest complete lift production capacity in Europe. ORONA is also the first company to have been certified under the Eco-design (ISO 14006). Despite all this, the brand was little known in the Indian market.
Gilco Global being the representative of the ORONA Group in India, had the sole responsibility of creating as much brand awareness as possible in India. By and by, Gilco Global overcame these issues and build a strong brand presence in India. For over 7 years now, Gilco Global has been strongly extending the philosophy of ORONA in India with its exceptional customer service and quality products. Owing to this success, the company has bagged collaborations with reputable companies like ECOSPACE IT, AEROSWEEP, ESCAPE MOBILITY, DHLLUIS, and HIDRAL S.A. The company has also spread its operations in over 10 cities in India including Ghaziabad, Noida, Delhi, Bangalore, Mohali, Mathura, Bhiwadi, Chandigarh, Gurgaon, and Faridabad.
How Aman Moudgil maintains a Work-Life Balance
Few entrepreneurs understand the importance of maintaining a healthy work-life balance. Having been brought up in a household that valued time management, Aman knows the significance of the same. “I have been brought up with values of time management inculcated to me by my Father who even till now believes in the motto of ‘early is on time and on time is late’. Also, I have studied in a missionary school that rested on values of time management and discipline,” he says.
Aman also believes in smart work over hard work and tries his best to pass on this idea to his teams. “When we can streamline the process and become efficient, we can then focus less on the total amount of hours worked,” he adds.
He claims that maintaining this balance of smart work and strict discipline has increased his and his team’s efficiency considerably.
Aman on Changing Market Trends
Every entrepreneur aims at staying a step ahead. Mr. Aman, too, believes in optimizing his company’s organizational structure to adhere to the market trends. “We as an organization have worked on our internal processes and are using technology to optimize the same and also make them more efficient,” he says.
He focuses on consistently improving his company’s customer experience. To keep up with change, he likes to keep a keen eye on the business environment or any change in the customers’ behavior patterns. He is also big on customer feedback and stresses the importance of it by adding, “We keep an eye on the business environment and change in the behavior pattern of our customers and also the business environment. Customer feedbacks at periodic intervals (usually clubbed along with our service visits and through random calls directly with the customer) help us gather raw input about the overall experience and identifies the areas of improvement for us. Furthermore, current pandemic restrictions have made us use technology more effectively both for training (which are now happening through video conferencing) and ground operations wherein our Quality team is now using remote monitoring techniques to not only monitor critical processes but also routine preventive maintenances as are being conducted periodically with the Central idea of ensuring optimal product performance and a satisfactory customer experience.”

A Message to Aspiring Entrepreneurs
Having been in the industry for several years now, Aman has acquired some timeless wisdom that he’d like to impart to new entrepreneurs. Here’s what he has to say: “It cannot be better than the famous quote by Steve Jobs – ‘Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma’ which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most importantly, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
