Chen­nai-based ICMPL (In­te­gral Com­po­nent Man­u­fac­tur­ers Pvt Ltd), man­u­fac­tures tech­no­log­i­cally ad­vanced engine com­po­nents both for do­mes­tic and ex­port mar­kets. Its prod­ucts in­clude im­peller, adap­tor, bear­ing cap, wa­ter in­let, ther­mo­stat hous­ing, gear cover, oil pump cover, and wa­ter pump cover. These au­to­mo­tive engine com­po­nents are used in var­i­ous en­gines for bet­ter per­for­mance and dura­bil­ity. ICMPL plans to grow in the emerg­ing seg­ments of pow­er­train, elec­tric ve­hi­cle (EV) and be­yond.

“The world is still con­fused with the change in the au­to­mo­tive in­dus­try. This will have an im­pact on our in­vest­ment plans in the fu­ture. So, we com­mit to grow con­tin­u­ously by de­liv­er­ing qual­ity prod­ucts, achiev­ing cus­tomer sat­is­fac­tion and by be­com­ing a bench­mark com­pany, through team­work,” V S Karunakaran, Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor, ICMPL, told The com­pany makes the com­po­nents from spe­cial grade and stan­dard grade raw ma­te­ri­als like iron, al­loy steel, stainless steel and alu­minum to en­sure in­ter­na­tional stan­dards. It works with ma­jor OEMs as tech­nol­ogy part­ners to re-de­sign com­po­nents and make them cost-ef­fec­tive. ICMPL has bagged ex­port or­ders from the US and Ja­pan, ow­ing to its con­sis­tent fo­cus on qual­ity.

“The great­est strength of our com­pany is high fo­cus and re­li­a­bil­ity. Our prod­ucts have con­sis­tent qual­ity which im­presses our cus­tomers. We also re-de­sign as per the cus­tomer’s re­quire­ment with­out com­pro­mis­ing on qual­ity. The ‘TS16949’ sys­tem is the base which drives our com­pany to at­tain per­fec­tion,” he said. “We man­u­fac­ture our prod­ucts keep­ing in mind the ex­act re­quire­ments of our cus­tomers. Our man­u­fac­tur­ing unit is well equipped with the state-of-the-art fa­cil­i­ties and equip­ment so that we can pro­duce range of prod­ucts that ful­fill our cus­tomers needs. Qual­ity has been our prime con­cern in this busi­ness since in­cep­tion and has earned us a large and trusted clien­tele across the world. As a re­sult, we are the pri­mary sup­plier of com­po­nents to Bom­bardier, USA. And re­cently we started pro­duc­tion for Wako, Ja­pan. There are many lead­ing cus­tomers like Volvo, Cater­pil­lar, Ford, Hyundai, Har­ley-Davidson, John-Deere, Re­nault-Nis­san and Cum­mins, who pre­fer our com­po­nents ow­ing to our con­sis­tent qual­ity,” Karunakaran said.

He con­tin­ued say­ing that, “We sup­ply 250,000 trans­mis­sion com­po­nents to Ford an­nu­ally, 120,000 com­po­nents to Re­naultNis­san and 50,000 to BMW and engine com­po­nents to Hyundai, John-Deere and Volvo. The prod­ucts are be­ing sup­plied

daily. We also cater to the ex­port mar­kets and ex­port com­po­nents to Ford In­dia and Daim­ler In­dia Com­mer­cial Ve­hi­cles (DICV) which in turn are ex­ported to Brazil, Ja­pan and var­i­ous other coun­tries. We also have a joint ven­ture with Indo Nip­pon Pre­ci­sion Com­po­nents Pvt Ltd through which we sup­ply to Ja­pan.” he said.

ICMPL sup­plies around 75,000 alu­minium die-cast­ing com­po­nents, 250,000 engine com­po­nents and 60,000 iron and steel parts to Wako Fil­ter Tech­nol­ogy Co. Ltd, Ja­pan. It has re­ceived more Ja­panese or­ders be­cause of its high pro­duc­tiv­ity skills and the su­pe­rior qual­ity prod­ucts.

ICMPL has also ac­quired a Mex­i­can com­pany Ac­umet LLC in Agus­calientes, which caters the US mar­ket mainly. Now to meet the grow­ing de­mand the com­pany is plan­ning to dou­ble the ca­pac­ity of high pre­ci­sion alu­minium die cast­ing com­po­nents.
