They are also targeting overseas business opportunities.
STORY FROM INCEPTION TO PRESENT DAY
Initially, the multi-discipline Engineering Company, Telecon Systems was established as a small business idea but in 1997-1998 the larger business came in their way when they entered in Petrochem and Nuclear Power sectors. They also introduced automation solutions for Barrage Automation, Water Treatment Plants and Electrical Systems.
Field services occupied the center stage till 2014 when they introduced automation solutions and also went out in pursuit of overseas business opportunities. In the year 2016, they included IOT & IT for offering more advanced automation solutions.
They set up a state of art Calibration Lab for Pressure & Temperature in 2012 and were awarded NABL accreditation. Telecon Systems is one of the very few companies in India who have NABL accreditation for both Lab & site application & also have teams for field services.
A GLIMPSE OF THE INDUSTRY
Today, the world is passing through a period of economic recession but Indian Govt. has opened the doors of PSUs and other Govt. organizations for Indian companies by floating huge requirements of infrastructure projects and up-gradation of existing facilities. Huge funds are available for projects in Drinking Water, Sewage treatment and rivers/canals. Smart cities are opening up another big avenue for Indian vendors. Indian companies should upgrade their technologies and skills to be competitive against foreign suppliers. The service sector is offering a huge opportunity for Indian Service Providers since Indian technical manpower is much cheaper than the overseas manpower.
DRIVING FORCE BEHIND SUCCESS
The major factor behind the success of the company has been excellent teamwork. Many of the team members are with the company for more than 10 years. Few of these have contributed more than 20 years of their life for the growth of Telecon Systems. The entire team of Telecon Systems is like a family sharing together moments of glory & gloom. Personalized relations are maintained with each one and celebrate every festival together.
