The Incorporation Of Shivtech And The Team Formation
Shivtech, a leader in Marine Systems, Solutions and Services, was founded in Mr Sushil Bhatnagar’s kitchen, back in 1993. He envisioned offering high-quality solutions to ships sailing in India that frequently experienced system failures or breakdowns and whose replacements came at excessive costs to owners.
The E.D., Capt. Sajeev Bhatnagar, later joined him as Shivtech began to carve out a name for itself and bring in business from some of India’s largest shipping corporations. In the 1990s and early 2000s, Shivtech was one of the first Indian companies to offer calibration services, onboard repair and fault-finding services, and highquality technical solutions for India’s developing maritime sector.
Over the past 29 years, Shivtech has believed in going slow and getting it right, every time, establishing its reputation for excellence and reliability for Clients globally. Shivtech started humbly, and has since nurtured, mentored, and groomed talented engineers into this industry. The majority of engineers and technicians on the Shivtech team today, have worked for the company for more than ten years, demonstrating the management’s dedication to the well-being of its employees.

Words of Wisdom
The best marketing tool is reputation. Value creation is enabled by trust and quality – by keeping your word and going above and beyond your Clients’ expectations, over an extended period of time. Cutting corners as a culture or value creator, may succeed in the short term, but to succeed in the long run, the emphasis should be on competing in value creation through innovations and delivering dependable customer service. Quality at a fair price will always prevail in the long run.
