SK SYSTEMS PVT. LTD.
The top management of any successful corporation makes a big difference to the overall efficiency, work-life balance of the employees, and to the working capacity of the units. If the head honchos are positive and charged up, the day, month, and year, of the concerned company is surely made. It will really help in rolling in higher profits, bigger and better bottom-line figures, and up the ante of the morale of the entire team. Such kind of positivity seems to stem from the strong and surging vibe given by Mr. Ajay Bhargava, Managing Director and Mr. Sanjay K. Gupta, Mrs. Shobha Bhargava & Mr. Adesh Gupta ,all Directors of S.K.Systems Pvt. Ltd.
Involved in executing turnkey projects of Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning Systems(HVAC) in Cement , Oil ,Steel , Power and other industries both in Private Sector as well as Public Sector,this organization proffers a very firm, steady, and workaholic-kind of narrative for those that come in professional contact with it. Presently busy with the processing of three main turnkey projects, among others, two of which are in Bhutan for Underground Hydroelectric Power Projects (PHPA-I & PHPA-II) of 1200 MW & 1020 MW Capacities both being built-up there with the aid of Govt. of India , and areto the tune of about Rs 30 Crores, this corporation is “the leader in the field of HVAC Systems for hydroelectric power projects and ranks number one in this segment of work”.
Mr.Ajay Bhargava, a member of the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration, and Air-conditioning Engineers, Inc., is an engineer from B.I.T.S.,Pilani, and joined hands at SK Systems Pvt. Ltd. in 1996. Says he, ”we also are head-on taking on work in Pressurization and Ventilation Systems, Evaporative Air Cooling Systems, HVAC Systems, Mill Motor Ventilation and Mill Hood Exhaust Systems, Dust Extraction and Collection Systems, Fume Extraction and Scrubbing systems, Aspiration systems, etc”. Mr.Sanjay Gupta, a Chartered Accountant who takes care of the commercial and legal aspects here, categorically informs that “the product line that this company excels in includes Axial Flow Fans, Industrial Man Coolers, Centrifugal Blowers, Limit Load Blowers, Evaporative Air Cooling Units, Air Washer Units, Supply and Exhaust Air Units, Pulse Jet Bag Filters, Cyclone Type Dust Collectors, Wet Collectors, Fume Scrubbers, Auto Viscous Filters, Pre-fabricated Ducts and Dampers, et al”.
Having set sail on this professional sojourn with an initial investment of Rs 5 lakh, this company has matured with the years that it has been in existence. Setting up its base in 1980 by Late Mr. N.K. Gupta, this company as on date, has a workforce of about 120 people, says Mrs. Shobha Bhargava who is looking after Works Administration of the company. A happy coincidence is the fact that close to 80% of the employees onboard here have been retained for more than 15 years. Most of those on the employee roster stay with this company ranks since they are more than satisfied with their remuneration packages, the freedom to choose one’s work realms, and a fulfillment of all requirements that are made of the company. The one other really joyous part of working here is that “we maintain a totally family-like atmosphere in our premises at all times” says Mr.Adesh Gupta who is looking after the Materials Department of the company. SK Systems Pvt. Ltd. is keen on keeping its employee portfolio very satisfied with the work dynamics here.
Creditably, one of the projects undertaken by this company was in the Kargil area of Kashmir, just 30 kilometers short of the border, between India and Pakistan. The eclectic duo chortle out happily that “the design concepts of our company are very appealing for the customers since we totally understand their requirements”. Having worked for highly esteemed units like NTPC, NHPC, and GE Power, et al, it is the high standards of quality and execution methodologies of SK Systems Pvt. Ltd. that is appreciated widely by its clientele base. Interestingly, BHEL, Bhopal, has been giving steady and a continuous stream of work for the last full decade to the company in discussion. Aesthetically appealing and economical designing, as touched upon earlier, is the primary forte here. So also, ensuring 100% on-time delivery of projects is the other major advantage any customer of SK Systems Pvt. Ltd. is certain to accrue.
In addition to the above mentioned three big projects, this company is also working on six to eight other major projects presently. Having ISO 9001:2015, ISO14001:2015 and OHSAS 18001:2018 quality credits up its street, this company stalwarts claim“we are among the top 100 companies in India in our field of activities”. Logging in a group turnover of about Rs 35 Crores in March 2020, Mr. Ajay Bhargava and Mr. Sanjay Gupta firmly believe that “we fully understand the complexity of all the projects we take up”. The decision to join into the field of hydropower projects was taken in the year 2000. Before this, the primary involvement here was in the cement and steel industry. Incidentally, the sales and projects team here constitutes about 50 members.
The projects taken up for ventilation purposes may scale up to 30 lakh cubic meters. Also, undertaking assignments for manufacturing of centrifugal fans of very highcapacities is another work gambit of SK Systems Pvt. Ltd. This particular set of products comes with a warranty of one year, too. The past three to four years were marked with high productivity levels. The present period is witnessing an involvement in projects worth about Rs 60 Crores. In total, the company has completed close to 25-30 projects. An interesting fact emerges from this rather satisfactory scenario that “small-scale projects tend to be more worthwhile in financial terms”. Important clients like Thermax Ltd. have also been serviced for the last 25 years, or so, on a more or less continual basis. The past five to seven years have seen almost all the projects from Thermax Ltd. being given to SK Systems Pvt. Ltd. in this domain of work. A number of projects undertaken in Bhutan and Kenya over the years have also paid sizeable dividends.
When it comes to the government, Mr.Ajay Bhargava and Mr. Sanjay Gupta believe that the GST. ethics have helped in “doing away with the inspector Raj of the times before”. A truly glittering fact is that this company has received the Best Vendor Award from BHEL, Bhopal, in 2018, and the Hind Rattan Award in 1994 from Mr. Shivraj Patil. Having worked in difficult terrains of Uri, et al, are some of the stellar professional hallmarks here. Customer satisfaction, as is well known, is totally comprehended here as the one key that can unlock the doors of huge successes.
Hard-work, in addition, is given due credit. Improving oneself from one project to another is a milestone that helps the cause of the rapid and steadfast success of SK Systems Pvt. Ltd. Technical know-how required for proper completion of the work taken on is a must in these ramparts. This is one “cornerstone that we always manage to update with time and tide since it is a sheer necessity in our operations. We have always completed the work that we took on, say the two with a united voice”. A case in point is a project taken on from NTPC for their 800 MW Koldam Hydroelectric Project in Bilaspur, Himachal Pradesh. It took time from 2005-2016 to complete. However, it was not left undone at any stage even though there were a number of roadblocks in the pathway. At end-point, it is essential to note that SK Systems Pvt. Ltd. is a company to watch out for. It has been so, is so, and will continue to be so since it is spear-led by men that have a sheer capacity of toil engrained in their own individual systems.
