Sanghvi Mover’s CEO Chandrakant P. Sanghvi Passed Away

It was late for our blog to announce the news that Mr Sanghvi, chief executive of India’s heavy lifting company Sanghvi Movers has passed away on 8th April 2019, following a battle with cancer, he was 65.

Let’s take a look back into Mr Sanghvi’s life in the heavy lifting industry.

He established Sanghvi Movers in 1989 when he purchased his first crane, a new Tadano TG700E hydraulic truck crane. Then after years of hard work, he took the company public in 1995 and ordered a number of new cranes with the proceeds, including a Demag CC2400 crawler crane.

It was a breakthrough for him in 1998 when he shipped 36 units of cranes from Singapore to India to fulfil a contract for the massive Reliance Industries petrochemical plant that is built in Jamnagar, Gujarat.

He is survived by wife Mina, son Rishi – who has taken over the running of the business alongside joint managing director and chief financial officer Sham Kajale – and two daughters, Ruchi and Niyoshi.
