Seven designs were short listed and the winner was picked by a panel of design and development experts including Mahesh Hira, Managing Director of Texet.

"The bedroom makes an ideal place for teenagers to study," says Mahesh Hira, Brand manager for Texet.

31-year-old product director Mahesh Hira (grandson of the founding member), relaunched the struggling brand in 1999. With a fresh look and a contemporary design, Hira\\\'s first step was to create three distinct product groups: a funky school range, a stylish office calculators range and, thirdly, gadgets.
Hira joined the family business in 1995 working from the bottom up. He commented: "My grandfather set me the task of cleaning the showroom. He taught me that if you clean the showroom and rearrange all the products, it's the best way to learn about what you are selling and understand the features."
Hira who graduated from Leeds University with a degree in Accountancy & Law, has learned his lesson well. The Texet brand now represents a substantial turnover of the Hira Company and market feedback suggests the competition is more than a little concerned. However, Mahesh is always quick to cite that "turnover is vanity, profit is sanity".
Says Hira: "I don't want to run a business, I want to build one. I get a buzz out of getting a team together that works with me, not for me. It is as much the people who work with me that have got these great results as the vision I have directed towards us."
Hira, who has just become a father for the first time, says he has always wanted to build a business. His earliest memories are as an eight-year-old selling the latest electronic items from the family business to his school friends.
Educated at Manchester Grammar School, Hira admits he was eager to leave and get into the working world where his ideas could help shape the successful family business.
And Mesh who says his favourite book is ''The Alchemist', adopts a moral close to his heart - 'life is more about the journey than the destination' - is adamant that whatever TEXET'S future maybe, he's certainly going to enjoy getting there.
He concluded: "We have been in Manchester for more than 40 years and I wouldn't be anywhere else. It's one of the greatest cities in the world. It's known for many great things worldwide.
