GFMM: What kind of product do you produce?
Cereatech: Even if a customer asks a single bolt, a piece of bolt is having the same value as an equipment, a system for us. We are manufacturing stainless and powder coated spouting and accessories in one workshop and handling, cleaning, milling and packaging equipment are manufactured in another workshop. This gives us flexibility, on time response and delivery.
GFMM: Tell us about the quality of your product. Why buyer will buy it from ten people’s product?
Cereatech: Our motto is: Reliability – Expertise – Satisfaction
As you may see Expertise is in the middle and covered by other two important priorities which are Customer’s expects. Our expertise strengths the linkage formed with Reliability (because everything starts: relying on somebody). If the customer is sure about your expertise, then this will give satisfaction to both of us. This philosophy is our motto in order to maintain the quality and expects at high levels. Because, we believe our customers are our friends.
GFMM: Compare your industry/company with respect or the top class to the world market.
Cereatech: The world is big and in the soon future the food will be the main concern of human being. Especially grain processing and flour production are key industries. We know this reality and trying to update solutions as much as we can.
We are getting more known in US, we have some projects in Africa South East Asia. But, we do not have any activity in Bangladesh and its neighbour countries, yet. We know Bangladesh is one of important country based on its population and food consumption.
We always are trying to provide high quality, high performance solutions.
GFMM: Tell me if you have any problems or challenges with this business.
Cereatech: 2020 and also 2021 are really challenging years because of pandemic. We have postponed gathering with customers, restricted travels, increasing raw material prices, damaged supply chains, etc. Of course this also effected us badly because many of projects were postponed for next year. We hope 2022 would be better.

We have local dealers in South East Asia, Africa and Latin America, but not yet agents. So there is no restriction on sales, we welcome any inquiries across the world direct from end users, or from dealers.
GFMM: Will you say about your management style?
Cereatech: Management focuses on controlling and facilitating a group of employees to achieve a goal set by the boss or their superior. Managers minimize barriers and focus on handling resources, budgets, processes, and a defined objective.
By contrast, leadership is not necessarily focused on control and power; rather, it adds value and influence to motivate employees to contribute to business success. Because, leaders tend to motivate, inspire, and create a vision. Anyone in an organization can be a leader, regardless of title. As such, a team member may be the perfect leader for a project even if they are not managing people.
That above explanation is how our management style is. We are based on a leadership mentality, since everybody is a perfect leader for a project.
As Cereatech Inc., our mission is to continue to provide the high quality components, quality workmanship products to increase the process quality of our customers, and our vision is to grow our expertise and talented products across the USA, Canada and introduce our quality across the globe.
