En­gi­neer­ing is the base of the man­u­fac­tur­ing and power gen­er­a­tion in­dus­try. Here is an em­pire that saw the in­volve­ment of 5 suc­ces­sive gen­er­a­tions to emerge as the hon­cho in their seg­ment. We are delv­ing about In­dus­trial Boil­ers Ltd. the foun­da­tion of which dates back to 1860 when Mr. Bo­man­shaw Ho­mavazir es­tab­lished an en­gi­neer­ing work­shop with the sup­port of his five sons at Hubli. The busi­ness ex­panded over time; the present setup is an ini­tia­tive of Bo­man­shaw’s grand­son Rusi.In­dus­trial Boil­ers is In­dia's first com­mer­cial Flu­idised Bed (FBC) boiler man­u­fac­turer.The group ex­ports 40% of their prod­ucts to Asian coun­tries, Europe, and Africa. “We are the only Boiler man­u­fac­turer of steam tur­bines in In­dia. Every prod­uct man­u­fac­tured at In­dus­trial Boil­ers is tech­no­log­i­cally su­pe­rior, in­no­va­tive, en­ergy saver, ro­bust, fu­tur­is­tic, and 5 years ahead of time. We get or­ders every now and then; this cor­rob­o­rates the qual­ity of our prod­ucts and trans­parency in deal­ings,” says Ho­mai En­gi­neer, Chair­per­son and Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor. What started with Rs. 25,000 blos­somed into a 150 crore com­pany to­day, carv­ing a dis­tinc­tive niche as a trusted global name. To­day, the group is steered by the charis­matic Ro­hin­ton En­gi­neer and Cyrus En­gi­neer, amongst other Direc­tors. The First Hy­brid boiler, “The Agropak” was de­vel­oped by IBL in 1991 and still main­tains its rep­u­ta­tion as the best boiler in its class.

• ESP, Bag Fil­ters • Wet Scrub­bers • Pol­lu­tion Con­trol Equip­ments. In­dus­trial Boil­ers is equipped with three state-of-the-art man­u­fac­tur­ing units, two at Vapi in Gu­jarat and one at Greater Noida, Ut­tar Pradesh. All plants are fur­nished with ma­chines and tools of the lat­est tech­nol­ogy with ded­i­cated qual­ity con­trol and R&D units. Raw ma­te­ri­als are tested for qual­ity at source be­fore be­ing trans­ported to the fac­to­ries. “We have changed our strat­egy com­pletely from the year 2000. No com­pro­mises are made on tech­nol­ogy and qual­ity. We in­vest around 10% of our turnover on tech­nol­ogy, new equip­ments, and for im­prove­ment on qual­ity,”ut­ters a dy­namic Mr. Cyrus En­gi­neer, Di­rec­tor.

Staff aged 28-30 years are se­lected and groomed; they may be­come fu­ture lead­ers and direc­tors based on their ex­pe­ri­ence and per­for­mance,”says a suave Mr. Yo­han En­gi­neer, Di­rec­tor. The staff of 1000 peo­ple in­clud­ing 200 en­gi­neers at In­dus­trial Boil­ers un­der­goes train­ing reg­u­larly to stay up­dated with lat­est tech­ni­cal and mar­ket trends. They work like fam­ily in a con­ge­nial en­vi­ron­ment, en­joy­ing nu­mer­ous ben­e­fits and fa­cil­i­ties. They come across new chal­lenges and all get equally in­volved, thus en­joy­ing, learn­ing, and grow­ing at the same time. The group is deemed one of the most re­spected en­ti­ties in its seg­ment given the max­i­mum re­ten­tion of staff since in­cep­tion. As part of cor­po­rate so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity, In­dus­trial Boil­ers con­verts mu­nic­i­pal garbage and sewage waste to en­ergy fuel that can be used in power plants. They are equipped with the tech­nol­ogy to turn waste into en­ergy; they have tun­nel sys­tems that con­vert 100 Ton garbage to 50 Ton of dry fuel at a time. Though setup and the process is ex­pen­sive, the com­pany looks for­ward to­wards re­cov­er­ing the cost in the next 4-5 years. The fuel pro­duced can gen­er­ate steam and power for nearby ar­eas of Delhi.

• In­dus­trial Boil­ers Ltd. • IB Turbo Pvt Ltd. • Ther­mal En­gi­neer­ing Kenya Ltd. The en­er­getic Cyrus Engi­neer­has re­searched and de­vel­oped sev­eral pi­o­neer­ing tech­nolo­gies such as Cir­cloflame Burner, Quick Clos­ing Au­to­claves, Mul­ti­fuel Brow­n­ian Boiler, Mag­num Boiler, Lin­ear Fres­nel So­lar Boiler, Back Pres­sure Steam tur­bines, PLC sys­tems and Ster­ling En­gines. He is reg­u­larly con­sulted by Boiler In­spec­tion depart­ment for ac­ci­dent di­ag­no­sis and is also called for lec­tures to M-Tech and PhD stu­dents of IIT Delhi and As­ton Univer­sity. The dy­namic en­tre­pre­neur owes the suc­cess of the group to a blend of lead­er­ship, con­sis­tency, and cus­tomer sat­is­fac­tion. A mem­ber of Cen­tral Boil­ers Board (Govt. of In­dia ini­tia­tive; only 4 mem­bers are se­lected from in­dus­try), he leaves a mes­sage for the read­ers, “In Busi­ness, you must plan ahead of time. Think what will be the en­vi­ron­ment and busi­ness de­mand 15 to 20 years from to­day; try and aim to de­velop prod­ucts to meet that re­quire­ment at least 5 years ahead of that dead­line. Any­one who fol­lows the oth­ers can never be a leader.”
