How it began – the story of RICATEC
My name is Soerin Narain. In 1997, I started as a salesman in a car materials store. I sold mainly luxury goods: car radios, speakers, amplifiers, subwoofers, radar detection, navigation systems, overhead monitors and so on. I am an eager learner and wanted to have a better grasp on how these systems worked. That way I could identify and solve problems. I started installing all these systems myself. The best way of learning is by doing things yourself and in this I turned out to be a true autodidact. I started my own business in 2004. That went well until the banking crisis broke out in 2008.
But even though life sometimes dents us, entrepreneurial blood will never be pushed around. Real quality speaks for itself, and this resulted in a perceptive client noticing my passion and perfectionism. He gave me a chance and involved me in his projects. So in 2013, I traveled to the South of Germany for my first major disassembly & assembly (R&I) job.
In those seven months, I discovered that this intensive work suits me very well. There is a nice challenge in meeting targets set by clients, such as car body repair shops and insurance companies. A new world opened up for me by working with international colleagues. I learned a lot in the professional field and how to express myself in foreign languages.
After Germany, more countries in Europe followed. As icing on the cake, I got the chance to work in Australia in 2019. An unforgettable experience!
