Rajesh Mehra, Director and Promoter of Jaquar Group has been conferred upon the ‘EY Entrepreneur of the Year 2018’ Award under the ‘Consumer Products & Retail’ category for delivering luxurious experiences. The award was presented by Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis.
Under the visionary leadership of Mehra, Jaquar Group created a distinct identity for itself by transforming the sanitaryware industry with a line-up of world-class products.

When I started more than 60 years ago, the industry was at a nascent stage and since then it’s been an incredible journey for us at Jaquar Group as we today emerge as the market leader with 60 per cent market share.”
