History and Culture of Arkkays

Arkkays National Engineering And Foundry Company was founded in 1964 by Mr. Ramchand Bulchandani; thus making it one of the oldest extant Bright Steel Bar Units in India. Initially, the production at Arkkays was confined to Mild Steel and some Carbon Steel Bright Bars, which were mainly used for Line Shafts and making ordinary components mainly through traders.

In 1973, our present Managing Director, Mr. Ashok Bulchandani took over the reins and had the foresight to see the potential for expansion into processing of Alloy and Free-Cutting Steels and started direct supplies to Automobile manufacturers like Ashok Leyland, Tata Motors and their Tier 1 suppliers like Lucas TVS, Brakes India, Sundaram Fastners, Sundaram Clayton and Textile machinery manufacturers LMW and their sister company, Rieter, among several others.

Arkkays has always upheld the dictum of “QUALITY FIRST”; which has led to our being, at least the Number One, if not the Sole Supplier to many Quality Conscious Tier One suppliers to the Auto and Engineering Industry.

With our judicious management and an excellent team, there was an exponential growth in the Company’s turnover, necessitating expansion, to Units II and III; all in the Amabattur Estate.

In the year 2009, with rapid strides in the Automobile Industry, our Director, Mr. Punith Bulchandani realised that it was essential to not only expand but also to automate and modernise the plant.

We decided to set up a State-of-the-Art plant in the SIPCOT Industrial Park in Irrangatukottai on a 5.3 Acre Plot. This plant has an installed capacity of 72,000 tons per annum, with a lower work force than our older plants. To ensure the highest quality standards, we have installed the latest Eddy Current Testing facility by Dr. Foersters and our Laboratory is NABL Certified.

We also have a dedicated CNC machining Line with Robots for machining of Automobile Drive Shafts and other similar components; to close tolerances. We have received Supplier of the Year Awards and have achieved 0 ppm since the last three years in our CNC Unit. We are professionally managed by senior people with rich experience in BOSCH and the TVS GROUP and others.

We have always believed in the Culture of “IMPECCABLE ETHICS”. With a vast array of bright steel products ranging from carbon to stainless steel, we manufacture over a 100 grades of bright steel bars in various shapes and sizes for our discerning customers.

Our forte is customisation of complex profiles to close tolerance by VA VE thereby ensuring our customers save, material, time and money with our service.

A qualified and dedicated workforce with a strong focus on quality, expertise in production and a Customer First Policy have helped Arkkays enjoy a continuous and sustained growth over the last 55 years. We look forward to being your proactive supply chain partner.
