Dear Friends and Partners,
We are delighted to share with you all that 2017 is going to be a very special year, as we are celebrating our 10th anniversary as a company. It has been a very rewarding journey, and we were very fortunate for the opportunity to partner and serve some truly outstanding and innovative companies, some of whom have been with us since the day we started our business. On multiple fronts, 2016 has been a very successful year for coMakeIT. While we have strengthened our existing relationships, we have also landed some new and marquee customers, and 2017 promises to be even more rewarding.
coMakeIT turns 10!
To commemorate our 10-year anniversary, we are hosting a series of celebratory events throughout the year. Our official hashtag “#coMakeIT10Years” has created a significant amount of buzz across social media. As a curtain raiser, we had a major celebration on the 21st of January at Ramoji Film City, Hyderabad. Some of our longstanding customers, along with our management team and all our associates and their families participated in this gala event.
