In addition to our initiatives at our Head Office in Mumbai, we had made a small beginning with our Pune operations in 1997 at Bibwewadi on the outskirts of Pune City with less than 50 engineers. This means we are relocating our Pune office after growing steadily over two decades. Our Pune Operations have been independently executing projects with minimum support from our Head Office in Mumbai and have several successfully-implemented projects to their credit. They have implemented EPCM services as well as EPC projects in the past 20 years. We very much look forward to continuing to serve our valuable customers from our new set up in Pune.’
