It’s hard to imagine, but Listenlights did start in the attic of Mr. Atul Vaidya’s home. Over 30 years back, in 1981, three young men got together to search for their fortunes in the contracting world. They set up this company with a rudimentary desk, a second hand typewriter and a bell system, rotary dial desk telephone. Their vision was a simple one – Quality work which exceeds expectations of customers and which brings the joy of a “job well done”.

From modest beginnings to having offices in four cities – Hyderabad, Pune, Bangalore and Mumbai, Listenlights has come a long way. During the course of this journey, a lot many things have changed - from the type of projects we did to the brands we worked with. But some things still remain unchanged. The way we execute our projects and our commitment to absolute quality and timely site handovers. This has been and will continue to be our endeavor in serving all of our clients, old and new.

35 years and having at least 350 projects and more successfully executed, we are on to achieve bigger and better milestones. With some of the best people on our team, the best partner consultants to collaborate with, awards, accolades and goodwill of some very well known clients, one can be sure that we are well on our way to achieve our founders’ vision in the best possible way we know we can.
