As we step into the year 2020, how forthcoming is the Indian industry in terms of adopting automated solutions? What more needs to be done?
In the past few years, an increasing number of MNC’s have started manufacturing in India and they have introduced Indian companies to the advantages of automation for entrances and material handling. Material handling and entrance automation has a key role to play in facilitating the quest for being truly world-class and ensuring a “competitive advantage” for the Indian industry. Indian industry has started giving emphasis on the technology updates and industry norms. To address the need of user-friendly operations, Material Handling and Entrance Automation are the latest technology. It provides ease of operation, swiftness and above all security, the pre-requisite benchmark.

What are the existing technological alliances you have with global concerns to ensure that the end product is ready for both local and global market?
The existing logistics and warehouse setups are horizontal in nature and thus create a lot of hassle in terms of the operational tome as well as not able to prevent higher loss of temperature and are unsafe as well-being forklift accident prone. We have innovated the technology by creating high speed vertical doors that are self-repairable, fast, safe, and reliable and a perfect solution where different applications and usage is to be customised and considered.

The Indian automation industry is growing at an annual rate of 20-25 per cent. With India’s gradual integration with the world economy, automation will play an important role in bringing down the costs.

Besides costs, automation will also help increase productivity efficiency, aesthetics and delivery systems. Several international players are considering India as a development hub for automation products.

What strategies are enabling you to maintain cost competitiveness as cutting edge in the present scenario?
Today’s material handling systems combine complex machinery and information technology that can facilitate value-added operations and contribute to supply chain excellence.
