Unlike other disinfection companies whereby most of their founders are businessmen, Mr Kumar started as a microbiologist and the company has their own laboratory within their premise to analyze and provide solution for any problems they may face. They want to provide a better environment for everyone to live and work in, they try to put themselves in their customers shoes in order to produce detailed consultancy reports for them to understand their methodology and proof of concept. Raveen Thedj is constantly looking into possible ways to improve the experience of their customers and reduce the workload of their team, they will make sure to take all risks into consideration when carrying out any tasks. He focuses on providing long term solutions and conduct frequent testing to show the rate of results deteriorating and suggest a better solution that would last longer. Despite HAVC having their own in house microbiologist and access to their own laboratory, they lack marketing skills to advertise themselves in the digital world.
Mr Kumar and his team is currently working on developing new technologies to combat any new virus or disease outbreak. Despite their constant efforts, they are still having trouble hiring local manpower as Singaporeans are not keen in joining the industry and many trained personals are joining their competitors instead. At HVAC, they formulate their solutions based on the specific problems of their customers, hence they are unable to produce accurate price quotes prior to any consultation. In order to ensure operational efficiency, they have their own team to monitor operational efficiency and provide weekly and monthly reports that include cross training, refresher course, travel time, downtime, equipment maintenance frequency and chemical formulation frequency. Mr Raveen is proud to have created a vibrant and energetic work space in their office, which allows their team to meet, collaborate and build bonds.
