At the Unbeatable time of British Raj (1858-1947) Roorkee was very famous city of India because of a renowned college named “THOMSON COLLEGE OF CIVIL ENGINEERING” (1853-1948) which was originally started to help Rail Engineers for construction of Bridges and Ganges canal. Along with this college there was an Industry in which British’s used to manufacture Survey Instruments and Bridge Materials with the help of Indian Labour.
My Grandfather’s Father MOHD. ISMAEL worked with Thomson College Industry under “Survey Instruments Department” before India gets its freedom from British Raj. After Independence my Grandfather MOHD. JAMEEL Ahmed ANSARI started to repair Survey and Navigational Instruments that were used in the college and hence established a new Business. Not only that they started exploring things and came up with some revolutionary Ideas like they Invented the alternate model for German made Stencil Pens and other Instruments like Plane Table, Drafting Machines.
Now, after he enrolled himself into a new era of Business they started working for Government and provide Fire Detecting Machines and other Precision Instruments. This new Business structure became quite popular at various places and because of this popularity people from different places came up with their Designs and Instruments and wanted to manufacture some Items Like: - Sextant, Compass, and Ship Telescope. After my Grandfather started manufacturing these items for them, he also started making some models with the same functionality and a special department for repairing those Items.
Business grown up very well and they started manufacturing Replica of some items that were used on ships and other navigational Instruments like: - Ship Telescopes, Lanterns, Binocular, wide variety of compass, sextant and many more. These product falls under the category of Nautical Items and a heavy demand of these Nautical Items among people made him think of exporting these items all across the world. Then ZASMART INC. came into existence that only Export Nautical Products in the entire world. Since then me and my Father “MOHD. AZAM ANSARI” is the care taker of this Manufacturing export unit of more than 1000 nautical product models all across the Globe and still counting.
