Padmanabhan as a modest hand-made manufacturing facility producing 6000 matchboxes per day.

He believes that success comes from expanding our vision and experiencing the world.It was in 2002, that when Rajashree took a major leap, with a goal to automate our production facilities to a world-class level by importing our first dipping machine. With the growing demands in the market and continuous strive for better quality, we set up Printing and Box Making units in-house, with the help of machinery imported from Germany and Japan. The next big leap came forward, when we replaced the manual filling methods with mechanized filling stations. Our strength lies in our continuous Research and Development in all our processes to provide better products.
