  • Diversified engineering company with a focus on providing comprehensive solutions and manufacturing high quality, intricate and critical products, components and parts
  • CAL offers comprehensive one-stop solutions to its customers including design, process engineering and manufacturing including foundry, heat treatment, fabrication, machining and assembly facilities. CAL is diversified across end-user industries and caters to commercial vehicles, two wheelers, tractor and other segments. For instance, they manufacture cylinder blocks, cylinder heads and transmission parts which are required for tractors and trucks as well as crank cases, which are required for two wheelers. They actively pursue cross selling opportunities across segments to derive value for existing and prospective customers. This not only helps CAL in solving complex customer problems that require multi-domain expertise but also helps in penetrating different business segments of the customer and enhances its capabilities to collaborate with OEMs right from the designing of their new products. Its diversified presence across various segments and design capability provides them with the flexibility to operate successfully across business cycles and mitigate any fluctuations in the industry. CAL’s diversification of revenue across multiple customers allow it to prevent any possible customer concentration in any of its business segments. With CAL’s track record and wide product portfolio, it has been able to retain existing customers and have also been able to attract new customers.

  • Strong in-house process and product design capabilities with the ability to interchange capacity and product mix
  • The company is present across various levels of the component value chain and possesses design capabilities which is unique across the competitive landscape. The company provides products and services that range from product design, prototyping, tool development, manufacturing, assembly and production of integrated components, reducing or minimizing use of, or reliance on, externally sourced components. Over the years, the company has engaged with customers from their early product design stage and have developed extensive process and product design capabilities and domain knowledge, particularly for niche, intricate, complex and highly critical automotive and non-automotive components, such as powertrain cylinder blocks and heads and camshafts.
    The company places strong focus on research and development, with an emphasis on continuous improvement in product performance, cost and reliability. CAL has utilized its in-house engineering and design capabilities to developed a diverse product portfolio including MHE such as hoists, crane kits, industrial gears/ gear boxes, storage solutions, marine engines and accessories, tool room, mould base products and special purpose machines (which includes metal cutting and nonmetal applications such as washing/ leak testing solutions), which are available to the company for captive use and application as well, and support contract manufacturing operations, while also reducing the need for reliance on third party component manufacturers or suppliers.
    CAL’s plant configurations are flexible, allowing it to move machinery from one location to another to interchange capacity, product mix, including ability to shift production lines between various segments, based on customer and operational requirements from time to time. This enables CAL to offer a diverse range of products and services to customers across a wide spectrum of industries in all three segments, thereby optimizing machine productivity, operational efficiency, time management and de-risking the business model.

  • Extensive manufacturing footprint, with strategically located manufacturing facilities
  • The company owns and operates 12 strategically located manufacturing facilities across seven cities in India, with a total built up area of over 1.5 million sq. ft. CAL’s facilities are equipped with advanced machinery and certain of the company’s facilities are located close to its key customers to enable meeting customers’ just-in-time delivery schedules, allow economies of scale and logistical advantages for customers, and to insulate them from local supply or other disruption. Two of the company’s facilities, forming its flagship integrated facility, are located at the outskirts of Coimbatore, TN. They also have two integrated facilities for aluminium pressure die casting, machining and SPM manufacturing at Bengaluru, KA. Other manufacturing facilities are satellite facilities located across automotive and engineering hubs in India and close to key customers, including three manufacturing facilities located at Pune, MH, two manufacturing facilities located at Ballabgarh near Faridabad, HR, and one manufacturing facility each located at Sriperumbudur, near Chennai TN, Jamshedpur, JH, and Pithampur near Indore, MP. The company has recently set up a new unit in Pune with high end fully automated equipment from Italian and Swiss manufacturers. This facility, which commenced operations in 2019, enables them to service the storage solutions market, catering to customers across India.
