In 2015, we added mobile accessories to our portfolio as we felt that there was a need to offer superior designs, quality and value to customers. We initially started manufacturing and supplying over 200,000 pieces of powerbanks to a leading brand in India. Our main aim is to offer superior quality, design and value to the customers.”

Pradeep Bhatia adds, “Make in India is a very good initiative from our Prime Minister, Mr Modi. Soon domestic manufacturing will take a big leap. We have already been into domestic manufacturing and see Make in India as a very encouraging program. We will lead from the front in driving this initiative forward. Nowadays, everyone likes to buy Made in India products, particularly after the standoff with China in 2020. We believe there is a lot of opportunity for Make in India products today and in future. The warranty and quality of the China-made grey products are unpredictable; next, it is not certain how long the China-made products last or when they fail. Today, people’s confidence in the Made in India products has also improved a lot as they know that India-made products come with warranty and also quality. We wish India will evolve into a leading manufacturing hub and a potential exporter in coming few years.”

Our R&D, design & development and manufacturing infrastructure is manned by highly qualified and experienced professionals. Some leading OEM brands have been purchasing our mobile accessories for the last 5 years, and they display the same level of confidence in our products in terms of quality and reliability today as they used to display when we initially started providing them. We use superior quality raw materials and maintain international standards for manufacturing. And we maintain same top standards while supplying to all our customers, whether big or small; we don’t provide different quality levels to different customers like some other manufacturers do. We continually upgrade our products in line with the latest innovations and advancements taking place in the world. Our current portfolio includes latest models of quick chargers, 18W powerbanks, Type-C to Type-C datacables and so on.”
Rajneesh Wadhawan states, “The grey market with substandard products is the biggest challenge we are facing. These grey market products often attract the customers with low prices, but more often than not, these products are of poor quality, last only for a short time and cost more to the customer in the long-run. So to protect the genuine providers operating in white, there is a need to regulate the markets to eliminate the grey market.”
Glorious Electronics is a lifestyle brand that deals in stylish mobile phone accessories and smart life products. The company designs products that are combinations of practicability and creativity. Glorious Electronics’ mission is to continually strive to create products with latest technology, superior designs & quality and great functionalities that offer value-for-money to the customers, backed by great after-sales-service.

In the next five years, we want to be one of the top 5 mobile accessories manufacturers and brands in India and we also want to significantly increase our volume levels, add more clients and partners. We also want to export our products in the coming years.”
