MIA Group Chairman’s Message.

Since I stepped into HVAC business, almost three decades back, I have always found this field challenging and wanting. During this period, with the evolution of e-commerce and gradual transformation of the world into a global village, competition in all fields, particularly HVAC, has gone fierce day-by-day. Only those who can keep pace with the changing environment and who are able not only to achieve but sustain customers confidence can survive. By the grace of Allah Almighty, MIA has worked untiringly and supported by an able and loyal team, MIA has not only survived the tide but also thrived and transformed in to a Group of Companies dealing in diversified businesses.

During my life long struggle, I have come across different types of entrepreneurs, very resourceful, educated and of course massively talented who all turned their dreams into reality by applying one or more traits possessed by them. However, my resource was different viz passion and passion only. Passion not to achieve material success but the passion to serve MIA’s valued customers and clients viz people whose persistent confidence and trust helped transform MIA into a leading Group of Companies.

The purpose of establishing independent companies, apart from diversifying business, and managing controls, was also to provide dedicated and specialized service to our customers & clients. It is always my advice to my team to be obsessed with desire and passion to continue this journey of service despite unending challenges and fierce competition.

I believe that the key to becoming a successful entrepreneur is not to let pessimism, disappointment and setbacks overwhelm you but to let inspiration, motivation and determination drive your dreams. May Allah the Almighty bestow upon us His infinite blessings on MIA Group to work together for the benefit of all and for sharing the bounty of success. Ameen!
