Corrugated boxes are dull cube boxes whose purpose is to pack and transport merchandise. Once unpacked these boxes are either discarded or stored for future packaging. If it was not for one person’s creativity and undying passion these boxes would have never found their place in our heart and home. After toying with the idea for 30 years, he gave birth to PaperShaper and life to these corrugated boxes

Meet the Founder

PreneurKonnect_PS_Founders

Haresh inherited his father’s packaging business. But more than just running the business he was interested in giving shapes to the cardboard sheets. He wanted to create products using these corrugated board which is not only durable but also artistic. And after years of tedious hard work and determination, he commercially launched ‘Paper Shaper’ 3 years ago.

Haresh completely believes in having faith in one’s passion and calls himself a rebel who refuses conventionality.

giving SHAPE to his idea

As a second generation corrugated board product manufacturer, I grew up with paper boards all my life. I was fascinated with its strength, weight bearing capacity and its durability. I  strongly believe that products made out of paperboard and corrugated board are sustainable and have less impact on the environment. Many things which we use in our day to day life are made from wood, plastic, and metal. Just to prove that these same things can be also made from sustainable materials like paper and the corrugated board. I initially made a chair out of the corrugated board just to convince people. I kept creating and adding more and more products. In fact, some of my furniture at the office have lasted decades of regular use, attesting to their durability and robustness.
