Through this conversation, we gained knowledge about the company’s lesser-known facts. The dignitary also highlighted the evolutions the company has undergone to get to where it is today. Compiling all of the illuminating words Mr. Niranjan Shekhar Tamhane shared with us, we have placed his story under the enticing edition, “The 10 Pioneering Business Leaders to Follow in 2023”.

The Chronicles of Inception
“When ULTRA-TECH’s Founder, the late Mr. Shekhar Tamhane, started his journey as an entrepreneur, his path was mired with challenges and sacrifices. He was audacious enough to leave his handsome corporate job and choose to pursue his vision of addressing environmental issues caused by industrial growth. During the late 1980s, addressing these issues required immense dedication, strategic initiatives, and perseverance. The scenario changed after the 20th century when people started to evaluate the drastic changes our actions were causing to the environment and realized that our planet was on the verge of vulnerability. Since the onset of the year 2000, ULTRA-TECH has grasped the hold of the environmental consulting market and, alongside, trained individuals for various employment opportunities in the emerging sector.
Indeed, he has left behind a platform for us through which not only we can take forward his vision, but we can also spread the agenda of consciousness towards our environment. His dream, futuristic vision, and perseverance continue to be our guiding energy.
As a new-generation entrepreneur with ardent and round-the-clock responsibilities, I have learned to prioritize a balance between personal and professional life through flexible work arrangements, outsourcing, and efficient time management. The importance of building and leveraging a professional network is indelible, as we grow the most under the shadow of people’s experience and knowledge”, says the Managing Director, Mr. Niranjan Shekhar Tamhane.
The entire proponent panel at ULTRA-TECH believes that the active participation of leaders in the entrepreneurial world is crucial for setting examples for young minds. Their leadership standards drive innovation and contribute to creating a remarkable story churned out of hard work, consistency, and a positive mindset.
Mr. Niranjan Shekhar Tamhane, Mrs. Aarti Tamhane, Mr. Deepak Tamhane, and Mrs. Deepa Karnik encourage business leaders not to let stereotypes hinder their dreams. They propagate the message of being resilient, carrying an ignited vision, and implementing a dignified approach to break the barriers of stereotypes. To have faith in your ability even if situations take the wrong turn and holding on to your instincts, will make you realize that even the sky is not the limit; one can go beyond it.
A Conducive Work Culture
“At ULTRA-TECH ensuring client contentment is paramount. Our company pays unshakeable attention to fostering a work environment where every individual has a part to play in contributing to business decisions. We achieve this through fair compensation, professional development opportunities, a positive work environment, and an open communication channel. We also run various employee engagement and welfare programs to retain talent by letting employees feel their contributions are equally important to sustaining organizational growth.
It is of utmost importance to give our employees a culture that makes them feel like family. Our company’s well-established HR department keeps an extensive check on taking care of their needs in the best possible manner. Within ULTRA-TECH, the workforce is regarded as the company’s most invaluable resource.”
The Social Arm
Apart from offering these services to its affluent clients as environmental consultants, ULTRA-TECH is committed to giving back to society through corporate social responsibility initiatives, sustainability improvements, environmental compliance, and contributions to environmental causes.
Coercive Plans for the Future
ULTRA-TECH is planning to restructure its entire organization and list it as a public limited company.
