Mr. Keshwar Maraj
As a son of the soil, literally from the ‘banks of the Caroni River’, it has been a momentous journey over the past forty-three years in building this business; my legacy, my pride, my humility.
The experience that started it all occurred after O’Levels, where an opening for a trainee technician at Thermo Engineering Ltd. presented itself. Though not an initial passion, I am forever grateful for that stepping stone, as it paved the way for self-development.
In 1977, I was one of the successful applicants to be admitted to the John Donaldson Technical Institute in Port of Spain for evening classes, where I pursued my National Diploma in Air Conditioning and Refrigeration. This further created an opportunity for me to level up and in 1979, I transitioned to MECAL FAB Limited where I gained vast experience in the refrigeration industry.
I graduated from John Donaldson Institute in 1981 and soon after I began working on a contractual basis with several companies.
In 1983 I made my first trip to Miami with a suitcase and a couple of hundred dollars. This was the birth of the concept of Maraj Air Conditioning Ltd.
This journey through life has taught me that amidst everything, focus, determination, and acknowledgment of purpose will prepare you to capitalize on opportunities when they knock on your door.
Maraj Air Conditioning Limited is a company, that due to my approach to life, has remained ready for these opportunities. Being able to respond in the right time and right way has allowed us to build a business that has continued its operations for over four decades.
We have forged some long-lasting and strategic ties with major international suppliers who carry high-quality products. These alliances provided the platforms we needed to establish a reputable product range, which positioned us in the market as the leader.
The globe is quickly changing and we at Maraj Air Conditioning Limited are set for this next phase of its development as we complement our team with professionals who are passionate and equipped for this next level. In adapting to international laws and standards, it is our goal to ensure that our customers are informed and guided as we ride the tide of change.
We are pleased to continue serving our customers in Trinidad and Tobago and the Caribbean region as our team is always in ‘go’ mode; ready to expand our reach. Regardless of the climate, we intend to maintain the high standard of our products, services, and customer care.
