Established in 1974, ASPICK ENGINEERING PRIVATE LIMITED is a firm of precision fabrication engineers, specializing in the design and fabrication of special purpose equipment, industrial plants and precision equipment, made from the most carefully selected stainless steel, mild steel or carbon steel, across a wide spectrum of industries, the world over. ASPICK designs and manufactures a range of process equipment for chemical, nuclear, petro-chemical, pharmaceutical and engineering industries and also for the nation's nuclear space programme, all under the ever watchful and experienced eye of our founder and Managing Director, Dr. S. Chinny Krishna.
ASPICK's range of special purpose equipment has developed in response to the requirements generated by the large-scale establishment of chemical, paper and other industries, as also the space programme. Staffed with well-qualified engineers and technicians and a highly skilled work force, ASPICK has the capacity to undertake basic engineering, detailed design, preparation of manufacturing drawings, precision fabrication, and erection of a variety of industrial plants and special purpose equipment on a turnkey basis. A wide range of metals, including stainless steel, carbon steel, aluminium, mild steel, ni-hard and other alloy steels are utilised by ASPICK for our precision fabrication, backed by our extremely sophisticated welding techniques. The special purpose equipment supplied by ASPICK has passed the stringent inspection requirements of reputed inspection agencies, consultants and other organisations, such as Lloyds Register of Shipping, Tata Consulting Engineers, Engineers India Limited, Directorate of Inspection of the Director General of Supplies and Disposals, Department of Atomic Energy, Buhler-Interfonda of Switzerland, Otto Muller and Heimsoth of Germany, and numerous other world leaders.
ASPICK has developed and manufactured complex import-substitute items for the ceramic industry, stainless steel refiner plates for the pulp and paper industry and special purpose equipment for the abrasive and ceramic industries. Special-purpose equipment are developed for highly specialised and sophisticated requirements, while projects to improve the performance of equipment in service are also undertaken. ASPICK also supplies plants on a turnkey basis, including stainless steel chemical plants, stainless steel essential oil extraction plants, kilns, complete painting plants, ovens, stainless steel heat exchangers, conveyers, the most exacting of stainless steel or carbon steel delivery systems, etc., and has fabricated the largest satellite communication antennae in India, and among the largest in the world, also from very high grades of stainless steel. Our clients include MNCs, large private sector companies, as well as various Departments of the Government of India. ASPICK has also supplied some of the most sophisticated reactors, heat exchangers, pressure vessels and ovens in the world.
The ultimate testament to ASPICK’s unrelenting commitment to the highest standards is the fact that at least three of ASPICK’s present-day customers were with us as far back as 1974. Between 1998 and 2012, well over 90% of our business came from repeat customers. In 2010 and 2011, this figure was 100%. What better testament to our quality and timely delivery! ASPICK has worked closely with ISRO in developing the country’s space program from a very fledgling stage, and even as the climate across India has changed, our quality has never wavered.
ASPICK is ISO 9001 certified for our quality management systems and ISO 14001 certified for our compliance with EMS (Environmental Management Systems). Quality isn’t just a catch-word with us, but the most appropriate definition of our organisational philosophy.
