Customer & Stakeholder Voices
Mr. Gilbret

“We have been working with Kineco for several years now. Entegris engaged with Kineco in 2012. At the time we were looking for new partners to manufacture GRP Filter Housings to diversify our markets. We conducted a review of GRP companies all over the world that could provide Entegris with novel technical capabilities and competitive pricing, which were all key parameters to succeed in the new markets. We finally selected Kineco amongst seven other companies we have shortlisted globally. Over the last 8 years Kineco has been supportive in terms of providing quotations & technical information, accommodating design changes seamlessly on projects, which had a very long gestation period. We progressively got our first successes, until we made a significant breakthrough on some of the largest projects in the world. Together we have developed a great product (Underground Tanks) and I am confident that together we can win additional big projects. I would like to thank Kineco for their faith in diversification, their willingness to assume risks &venturing into new projects with Entegris and their undying support. I am happy to work with Team Kineco in an amicable and cooperative spirit.”

“At the outset I would like to convey my heartiest congratulations to the entire Kineco Family on the momentous occasion of its Silver Jubilee. Our association dates back to 2006, when we had first developed the antenna cabins. There has been no looking back since and the first indigenous Sonar Domehas been a feather in the cap. Other important projects such as manufacture of 15 m carbon composite modular bridge and Radome for our AEWACS program, is also being executed by Kineco. I hope we will continue to work together in the years to come, eliminate any import dependence of our armed forces, and export lightweight composite defence equipment in the near future. I really appreciate the culture established by Shri Shekhar Sardessai at Kineco and associate with the defence programs of the nation at a very early stage, which can be both, technically challenging as well as financially rewarding in the long term. Our team has always appreciated the effort of Team Kineco to imbibe new technologies developed by us and to translate them into useful products. We hope this association continues to grow in the future. I am sure that you will be a leading light of the Indian Composite Industry and set an example for a true Industry & Defence Partnership.”

“Congratulation to the Kineco Group. Shekhar and I have been acquaintances since the late 90s and the best of friends for the last 20 years, during which I’ve seen Shekhar, grow into a business leader who everyone wanted to hear. We have witnessed the phenomenal effort he has put in his drive and vision to create a mammoth in the composite business…travelling the world, obtaining the technology, driving Joint Ventures, acquiring companies, innovating products etc. His leadership in trade and industry associations were a hallmark of character on display. Never once did he flinch in taking hard decisions or picking up a battle for the industry Vis a Vis the government. We are very proud the height, which Kineco has scaled, and the leadership and vision Shekhar has provided it. We wish you continued success…all the very best!”

“My initial association with Kineco is dated back to 2002, when while working as Dy. Chief Materials Manager, in-charge of furnishing depot. We were manufacturing composite components parts for the toilet modules at RCF, Kapurthala. We were facing many issues such as quality, cost overrun and production rate was not meeting the requirement. At that very moment, Kineco stepped in and started supplying complete composite toilet modules and I am happy to share with you, that the product was received very well by our end user and appreciated by all concerned.”
