It is an important pillar of the manufacturing sector of Indian engineering and contributes about 12% to it.
With India occupying the 10th position in global machine tools production, shares about 0.9% of its produce. By 2024, the growth of the sector is expected to be by $1.6 billion, at a CAGR of nearly 13%. This is Kinara Capital’s customer success story from Pune, of a young entrepreneur who reached heights in his machine engineering business.
Tai Mauli Engineering was established in 2015 by Pradip Tukaram Aragade, a young entrepreneur from a small village near Pune. Pradip completed his early education in a rural area and then finished his ITI diploma and started working in an engineering firm as a supervisor for one year to learn the trade.
Pradip with his one year learning experience with an engineering firm where they used to outsource their products, gave him the idea to start his own business. Pradip started his business Tai Mauli Engineering with one machine and one employee. Tai Mauli received a good number of orders, with just one machine they faced challenges to complete the orders and had to outsource some of the orders. This led to follow up payments for Pradip.
Pradip to avoid these situations decided to take a business loan, young age and little experience deprived him of the financial help he needed to expand his business.
When they faced lack of funds and no one came forward to help, this is when Pradip turned towards Kinara Capital. Pradip tells that the company he was working for also availed a loan from Kinara, that made him trust and approach Kinara. He visited the nearest Kinara branch where he explained his requirements and got a loan for his business.
In 2017, Pradip’s first loan worth INR 3 Lakhs was sanctioned in no time and was invested in asset purchase. Pradip bought another machine, with 2 manufacturing units in the house, it made the manufacturing process faster and led to completion of orders much easier. On time delivery of orders, aided in the growth of Tai Mauli Engineering. The number of orders flowed in and Pradip availed another loan worth INR 5.5 lakhs to expand his production.
Another loan worth INR 8.7 lakhs was availed by Pradip leading to further growth of the business. A fourth loan worth INR 2 lakhs was sanctioned in the name of Tai Mauli Engineering. More machines were purchased to fuel the manufacturing of the machined tools. Continuously growing business needed more funds, INR 13 lakhs loan was transferred to Pradip as his 5th loan.
The cashflow was invested in increasing the workforce acting as a working capital loan for their business. The loan helped them in extending property from a 500-600 sq.feet workspace to two premises. Higher trajectory in direct proportion increased the turnover, and yearly turnover ranging worth INR 4 - 4.5 lakhs increased to INR 50 lakhs per month. Pradip says, “I am happy with Kinara and I got many benefits because of Kinara Capital, they helped me grow my business”.
