UNIGUL is the brainchild of two brothers from Trivandrum in Kerala, who left for the Middle East in search of their destiny 17 years ago. Even as they left their home, Satheesh and Sajeev realized that Kerala had a sizeable number of its population working abroad in countries like the US, UK, Canada, UAE, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, Bahrain, Oman, etc., apart from the African countries.
The burgeoning aging population
With a huge number of people working abroad, Satheesh and Sajeev, armed with degrees in Economics and Commerce respectively foresaw that a few years down the line Kerala would have a huge number of senior citizens living alone or with caregivers or in old age homes. While these senior citizens would have access to better lifestyle and would be able to afford better healthcare and hygiene products, their children wouldn’t be near them to give them care.
Recent newspaper reports proved their intuition correct. Statistics quoted reveal that after China, India has the largest number of senior citizens in the world – approximately 10.5 crores! In the most literate state of the country, Kerala, the number of seniors living in old-age homes has increased by more than 62% in the last few years. Of these, there are many who have children living elsewhere.
Lack of availability of hygiene products
The brothers also realized that there were no manufacturers, importers or distributors of healthcare and hygiene products in Kerala to cater to the needs of the burgeoning senior population of the state.
Thus, in 2006, UNIGUL began its operations with its base at Trivandrum, Kerala. “We began with importing healthcare and hygiene products from the Far East and the Middle East and distributing them in Kerala and its neighbouring states and later on, started manufacturing them as well.” says Satheesh.
Today UNIGUL manufactures and/or imports and distributes various premium consumable healthcare and hygiene products like adult diapers, incontinence briefs, under pads, baby diapers, feminine napkins, baby care products, personal care products, etc. in Kerala and its neighboring states with the help of its strong dealer network.
