Trade Center
At a time when big multinational companies are calling on countries like India & China for out sourcing components, proper infrastructure is essential to showcase & market our products / services effectively. With this in view, a centrally located Trade Center is proposed.
Common Testing Center
A modern testing & calibration facility with ISO certification and accreditation from NABL is envisaged to benchmark and attain international quality standards in product reliability. It provides access to the latest and precision testing equipment with certification.
Effluent Treatment Plant
Common effluent treatment plant is envisaged to treat effluents released by industries. ETP is designed to meet current & future requirements of pollution norms.
Critical Machinery Center
Precision tool room is indispensable to any manufacturing activity. It is all the more relevant in today's consumer-driven society where model life cycle is short. This opens up vast opportunities to small scale entrepreneurs/design engineers to utilise the proposed CMC.
