Ever since Everest Transmission was established in 1980 with the manufacturing facility of Twin Lobe Rotary Air Blowers, it has grown leaps and bounds. It has since expanded its technological base, bringing a wide range of products. Situated in a modern facility in New Delhi, the company is ISO 9001-certified for its Twin Lobe Rotary Air Blowers which attests its quality. Facilities include in-house design, production, manufacturing, quality, control, inspection and after sales service. A focus on innovative design and high quality machined parts has earned Everest a reputation for excellent workmanship among its users. For nearly two decades Everest has offered its customers qualitative and cost-effective machines necessary to meet the changing technology. Engineering Advances spoke to the company on a range of topics. Excerpts:
How strong is Mechanical Vacuum Boosters and Roots blowers business in India ?
As on date, based on the available data the Booster and Roots Blower industry is not very large as compared to other industrial segments. The total market would be just around Rs. 50-60 crore. This is primarily due to the fact the Indian industry was not very conscious about modernization and up-gradation. However the scenario is changing rapidly thanks to the growing concern of pollution control, water and wastewater treatment and energy efficient systems. This can be gauged from the fact that even during a period of recession there has been a substantial growth in this sector.
How are you positioned in the current industry scenario ?
We are the pioneers in the segment as we are the only manufacturer for Mechanical Vacuum Boosters with successful installations covering various segments such as research and development labs, metalising plants, distillation plants and other industrial sectors. Our application-oriented R&D has made it possible to cover wider areas of application offering cost effective and energy efficient solutions thus creating larger market demand for our product. Although the market is under recession and under constant pressure to cut costs, we are going strong as our efforts are helping them to achieve this objective.
Globalisation has opened the doors of India to multinationals. How do you face the new challenges arisen out of it ?
Globalisation has its own advantages if we look at it positively. It has forced the Indian industry to restructure to enable them to produce quality goods at competitive rates to withstand international challenges. Our equipment requires application engineering and technology for which our engineering team is very competitive. We just don't offer blowers and pumps but offer customized solution making it difficult for multinationals to make a dent in our hold.
How about the unorganized sector ?
Roots Blowers and Mechanical Vacuum booster pumps are precision pumps and require high capital costs and technical skills that have kept the unorganized sector at relatively low levels.
What have been your recent major achievements ?
Amongst the major achievements for which we are both proud and happy are of having exported our mechanical booster pumps to advanced countries such as USA, Singapore and France against stiff global competition. We were able to meet their strigent technical requirements with our ISO 9000 support mechanism. We were also able to meet the technical requirement of the Research Cell of Department of Atomic Energy, CAT, Indore was the major achievement of our engineering and technical team.
