In the year 1969, a group of young and qualified and experienced engineers, led by a dynamic machine tool engineer formed a company with the express desire to professionally provide design input to Engineering Industries in and around Kolkata, for improvement in overall productivity and for indigenous development of special machines.
In course of time, it was noted that the requirement of the industries was not only design expertise, but they also desired that the special machines and equipment be manufactured and supplied.
Thus in order to fulfill this demand VIKRANT SPECIAL MACHINES PVT. LTD. was set up in 1976 with a prototype manufacturing and production workshop at 90, Nayapatty Road, Kolkata - 700 055, which in course of time grew into a full fledged and adequately equipped machine building and production outfit.
Over the years, VIKRANT went on developing design, built prototypes and manufactured machines of great variety and diversity catering to the needs of special and custom built machines.
