Senior Vice President, Foundry
Kirloskar Ferrous Industries
"Presently, I am working as SBU Head of our Foundry Division and am responsible for the overall casting business. Soon after my Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from Mysore University, I had a brief stint at NMDC, later I joined Kirloskar Ferrous Industries in 1994 as a Graduate Engineer Trainee.
My career at KFIL started in the Foundry division and over a period of past 27 years, I moved across various functions in the Foundry and acquired knowledge, expertise and contributed in the areas of projects, production, PPC, Systems, Technical Assistant to MD, Materials, Foundry operations, Sales and marketing, machining and then currently heading Casting Business as a SBU Head.
Over a period of time we worked and improved on our systems, processes, technology and competency of people and could meet global standards of product quality. Today, I’m proud to communicate that we are the first foundry in India to meet Euro VI norms Blocks and Heads and are also recognised as the best foundry in India by our domestic and global OEM’s. I feel proud to be part of this transformation journey at KFIL and be a member of senior management in our KFIL family.
I am really grateful to work in a place where we have lots of challenging jobs, opportunities and a highly conducive work atmosphere with a family environment. It helps us to grow and to make KFIL a great place to work to reach greater heights. I look forward to the upcoming dream projects of Aluminium Foundry, Line-IV and Machine shop expansion to become a reality in the journey of our one-billion-dollar organization by 2030."
