“ENGGIFIC” must be sounding unfamiliar to you. No worries, even I found it difficult to understand. Gradually after exploring and talking to Shivesh Goel, Entrepreneur, Owner and Founder of ENGGIFIC I could get the complete meaning. It is the combination of two words Engineering & Scientific. It is a Scientific Supermarket based in Hyderabad, it is accessible offline and online allowing you to shop most of the items needed on a regular basis for the construction industry to accomplish accuracy and precision in the work. At times the customer finds it difficult to procure quality and accurate engineering items all at one place.
