A.D. Padmasingh Isaac
Founder, Chairman and Managing Director
Visionary. Exemplary Entrepreneur. Pathbreaker.
The entrepreneurial spirit of Mr. Isaac was shaped by his childhood memories of watching his mother toiling for hours to complete various chores at home – cooking, cleaning the house and washing clothes.
This had a deep impact on him, and ignited the desire to make life easier for women in their homes. He began his entrepreneurial journey by launching “Twinkle” liquid blue in small sachets. Until then, liquid blue was something that the common man couldn’t afford. These sachets became an instant hit with the masses.

CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
“Businesses cannot be successful
when the society around them fails.”
Rural Employment Outreach
Due to nature’s uncertainty, low productivity and price instability, the agricultural sector remains under the grip of a constant income crisis. To support helpless farmers, the Aachi Group, under the guidance of Mr. Isaac, has created an efficient distribution network in rural areas. Today, this network has over 4000 distributors who are exclusive dealers of Aachi products. The members of this network are dedicated to the success of Aachi. This in turn, has proven to uplift their families with better avenues for their income generation and better education for their kids.
Further, the Aachi Group in association with Tennex Consultants, is working to develop skills of the rural youth in areas like retail and food processing. This initiative supports the Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana (PMKVY), the flagship scheme of the Ministry of Skill Development & Entrepreneurship (MSDE).
Aachi Red Revolution
1,000 acres. 1,000 farmers. 1 crore seedlings.
A bold vision of Mr. Isaac with the support of ‘Nallakeerai’ Jagan, a pioneer in the agricultural industry, made it possible to boost red chilli production in Tamil Nadu. We converted 1000 acres of farmland in Tiruvallur district into high yielding red chilli farms, by providing seedlings to farmers at Government subsidized rates along with continued maintenance support such as barriers, tube wells, sprinklers and agricultural machinery.
The farmers benefit from natural farming techniques to get a healthy yield. Further, they get the advantage of receiving a better market price, based on the quality of their produce.
EMPOWERING WITH EDUCATION
Mr. Isaac took over an ailing school – ICI Matriculation School in Chennai – and dedicated it to educating children of deprived families of labourers, drivers, house maids, and workers surviving on daily wages. As Correspondent of the school, Mr. Isaac has helped to make education affordable for them. The school has a record of having secured 100% pass results in the board exams – a phenomenal achievement, keeping in mind the economic background of the students.
Uplifting differently-abled youth
By opening up employment opportunities for the differently-abled, we have aimed at providing financial independence and self-respect to them. In doing so, we take care to identify their skillsets that can help them be gainfully employed. Today, our team includes visually impaired and specially-abled people, efficiently contributing to the growth and success of Aachi Group.
HEALING WITH HAPPINESS
Mr. Isaac started the Flora Clinic in Ayanambakkam – Chennai, in memory of his beloved mother who immensely inspired him to establish himself as a world-class entrepreneur. This clinic serves the sick and needy, absolutely free of charge. The local community benefits from free consultations with experienced medical practitioners. The clinic also provides medicines free of cost.
The Aachi Group organises free health camps for the blue collared employees in our factories. Leading medical practitioners screen our employees and provide free medicines for their common ailments. As part of this initiative, an eye camp was organised for the employees. Based on results of the eye tests, spectacles were provided to them, free of cost. Aachi Group’s blood donation drive was initiated by Mr. Isaac’s wife, Mrs. Thelma. Aachi’s workforce joined wholeheartedly to support this noble cause, making it a huge success. Today, it is part of our HR policy.
Ensuring food during floods
When floods unleashed havoc across Chennai in November 2015, Mr. Isaac and the team came forward to assuage the grief and helplessness of the poor and needy citizens. He made sure food packets were distributed to people who were homeless and hungry. Along with this, relief material that comprised of essential items for daily use were also handed out.
Aachi Green Initiative
To create awareness among employees and the neighbourhood, the Aachi Group undertook an initiative to plant around 250 saplings around Chennai. This was a small step taken to show our love for the city and respect for the environment we live in. As part of our Green Initiatives, we ensure effective waste management practices in our manufacturing processes. Our factories have a well-established effluent treatment plant that does not negatively affect the environment, and conforms to the rules laid down by the government.
