Joint Managing Director, Hindustan Syringes and Medical Devices Limited
Mr. Nath started working at HMD -a Rs. 500 Crore medical device company with a market reaching across India, United States, Europe, Middle East, Africa and South East Asia – soon after graduating in 1984, and decided to begin his journey from the shop floors of HMD with the objective of garnering first hand technical knowledge of the manufacturing processes and developing a thorough understanding of ground realities of the medical devices industry.
Over the years, Rajiv has dared to challenge the rules of the market and has written his own script with respect to syringe design, packaging and presentation. He created a niche for his disposable syringe brand, DISPOVAN, which is today one of the most popular brands in the Indian Syringe market with over 60% market share.
Rajiv is President of All India Syringes & Needles Mfg. Association (AISNMA), as well as the Founder and Forum Coordinator for the Association of Indian Medical Device Industry (AIMED) with over 350 Members nationwide.
As Forum Coordinator of AIMED, Mr. Nath has taken many initiatives for establishing a collaborative framework with various Government departments to draw attention to the challenges faced by the medical device industry, with the aim of making India as the preferred manufacturing destination and the leading supplier of medical devices worldwide.
