25% increase in production and reduced cost of operations with Metso Life Cycle Services
Srinivasa Edifice Pvt Ltd has been able to focus more on their core business and leave the crushing challenges to the experts. In addition to this, after experiencing significant cost savings and enhanced production from their initial Metso plant, SEPL has placed an order for an additional five Metso plants, all to be supported with Life Cycle Services contracts to better support their varied projects spread across the southern region of India.
SEPL has gradually started expanding its foothold in the industry and has been awarded prestigious projects by the authorities. SEPL was not only able to deliver on or before the project deadlines, but also deliver with consistent product quality. With their business growing, SEPL wanted a partner who could take care of their production targets but also let them concentrate on their core business, i.e. construction of railway lines and roads.
“We have been using Metso plants since 2014. Initially, we used to run them ourselves. We had seen other big players in the industry offloading their crushing business to Metso. We also thought it was better to go ahead with an Annual Maintenance Contract (AMC) or LCS from Metso for our comfort and growth. So we not only gave our existing plant to Metso under an LCS agreement, we also started replacing our existing competitor plants with Metso plants, which would give us the LCS advantage, shares Mr. YV Krishna Mohan, Managing Director, Srinivasa Edifice Pvt Ltd. He added, “We planned to have plants in different states across the country, such as in West Bengal, Jharkhand, Orissa and Tamil Nadu. Hence, going with Metso would be even more beneficial for us, as Metso’s wide service support network across India could help us in running the plants efficiently. This was a big advantage for us, and it gave us the comfort we needed from a partner.”
