V Automat & Instruments (P) Ltd
V Automat & Instruments was started as a Partnership Company in the year 1972 in the name and style of Automat Consulting Engineers having its base in Delhi with the product range as pneumatic process control instruments. The company was converted into a Private Limited Company in the year 1980.
The promoter with his 17 years of experience in various organisations of repute covering paper, chemical and atomic industries, observed that most of the process control instruments were being imported and if the same are manufactured in India, precious foreign exchange can be saved. Well versed in Technology and having a strong will power, he started manufacturing process control instruments and these were introduced to the industrial giants like ONGC, Oil India, NFL and Indian Oil Corporation Ltd. Mathura Refinery replaced their entire Russian controllers with Automat controllers and similar trend was followed by all refineries.
With the advent of electronic instruments, the whole disposition of the trade began to change. Automat once again opted for indigenous angle and to meet this challenge, R&D division was established with latest of gadgets. Within a short span of two years, the R&D centre developed displacement type level transmitters (electronic) with superior features and yet competitive in price and suited to Indian conditions. With this, Automat became the first company in India to have introduced indigenously developed level transmitters in the country and for export as well. Not only this, Automat has many more such feathers in its cap of being the first. In view of the enormous opportunities for export, Automat started its activities in this direction in the year 1992 in a big way with the result, and were able to penetrate the overseas market in Sri Lanka, Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, Japan, Middle East and African countries.
