During that time only he had made up his mind to start his own pharmaceutical company after completing his higher studies. Later, he undertook Entrepreneurship Development Programme (EDP) of Punjab Government, which proved very fruitful for him in starting his own venture.
Starting own venture
Once Chawla started his own pharmaceutical company,Trrust Health Care, he never looked back and touched newer heights of growth and success year after year. Chawla gives credit for his success to his father, Late S. Parduman Singh Chawla, who ran a medical store. “He was my mentor and guru. His experience and guidance helped me a lot in successfully running the pharmaceutical business,” he recalled, and said, “The blessings of my father are always with me and it gives me a lot of strength and inspiration.”
Chawla revealed that he started this company from a small office. “Now Ihave my own factory and presence in 22 states across India and even in some foreign countries. There are around 40 employees, who are dedicatedly working for the overall growth of the company,” beams Chawla.
He has got further strength and support in his business after both his sons Balkirat Singh Chawla and Sachkirat Singh Chawla joined the business. Presently, Balkirat Singh Chawla and Sachkirat Singh Chawla are Managing Director and Director, respectively, of the company. “We have not yet entered the South Indian market so far. Now we have big plans to explore the market there.We see a great potential for our products down South,” informed Chawla.

Chawla said though the number of products being manufactured by their company were not too much, they are not into the number game. “Adding newer products to the portfolio unnecessarily will not serve any purpose. Rather, we stress on quality and ensure to deliver the products at very economical rates,so that they are affordable to all customers,irrespective of their financial status,”he pointed out.
Asked about his success mantra, Chawla said quality and economical rates of products are leading them on the path of success. “It is true that we are doing business to earn money. But earning does not mean to loot people by keeping huge margins,”he said categorically. Chawla said the company was fully aware of its responsibility towards the employees, who workwith full devotion and dedication for the growth of the company. “The company takes the best possible care of its employees and provides them all the mandatory benefits like PF, ESI, Bonus etc.,” he said.
Chawla said their business ran as usual even during the pandemic time. “During that difficult time, we organised blood donation camps and also provided ration and other required material free of cost to the needy people,” he said.
Talking about the future plans, Chawla said, “We plan to expand in the South Indian market and also wish to explore markets abroad. At the same time, we plan to launch new products for cholesterol disease and also an ointment for wounds by this year.”
“Presently, our products are being exported but this is being done indirectly through some export houses. We provide test reports of our products that are supposed to be exported,”he said. “We strongly believe that there is a strong market for our products abroad also. Therefore, we shall be starting direct export of our products in the future,”he said.
He is also very appreciative of the working style of his sons Balkirat and Sachkirat. “Both of them have a great vision to take the company to newer heights,”he said. He believes that the company will definitely set up new milestones in the coming times with their visionary approach.
