The Precast market in India is developing at a very good pace. The machine-made concrete Structure achieves higher strength and accuracy than the in-situ casting at the site. This market as of now is very young and has huge development potential in India.
Established in 1980, Concrete Udyog (CUL), is one of the leading manufacturers of Concrete Pressure Pipes in Northern India, involved in the production of highly engineered concrete and steel products such as Pre- Stressed Cement Concrete Poles, Pre- Stressed Concrete Pipes (PSC Pipes), Pre-Stressed Cement Concrete Pressure Pipes with Cylinder (PCCP Pipes), Bar Wrapped Steel Cylinder Pipes (BWSC Pipes), and Mild Steel Pipes (MS Pipes), and specializes in execution of Turnkey Water Supply and Irrigation Projects.
With a network of manufacturing facilities in Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, and Tamil Nadu, and a Corporate Office in New Delhi, its expertise extends from custom-made Poles/Pipes to total engineering for pipeline projects. Leveraging its four decades of legacy, CUL is continuously upgrading its strategy and business commitments to emerge as a prominent participant in the sector.
PCCP Pipes and BWSC Pipes have been employed in Europe and USA for years for water transmissions, distribution pipelines, and sewage force. To bring the best technologies to India, it started manufacturing these pipes in 2015 which confirms IS standards but closely corroborates with American standards as well. At Present, CUL is one of India's largest providers of Concrete Pressure Pipes, with an annual manufacturing
capability of 200 km for smaller diameter pipes and 100 km for bigger dimension pipes. “Concrete Pressure Pipes are extremely viable in projects for the transmission of huge volumes of water/ effluents under high gravity flow through larger diameter pipes from 600 mm to 4000 mm. Our Bar Wrapped Steel Cylinder Pipes are a superior choice for smaller-diameter applications or laying network distribution. It has similar structural properties to mild steel pipes but has advantages due to its semi-rigid nature in smaller diameters”, says Gagan Saraogi, CEO and Director, CUL.
Ramesh Saraogi, Managing Director
CUL is currently catering to turnkey pipe laying projects in the states of Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Haryana, Rajasthan, Maharashtra, and Delhi NCR and has a large client base in India due to its extensive distribution network, ethical company standards, experience, and affordable pricing structures.
CUL is dedicated to providing the finest techno-commercial solution for its clients. The team of highly qualified engineers, led by its Directors, who are alumni of BITS and IITK, understands the requirement and applicability of the product enquired by the client.
CUL is managed under the able leadership of the promoter and present Managing Director, Ramesh Saraogi, a graduate of B.I.T.S., Pilani. He has established the business right from inception. With his foresight, experience, and technical expertise, he has been channelizing the establishment ever since. This leadership has been supported by many generations and while each style was different, the passion to grow, the response to challenges, and the optimism for the future have been constant.
Concrete Udyog is in the process of setting up the expansion facility at Jhansi and will be the first in India to manufacture Embedded Cylinder Pipes which will also enable vertical casting operations for Pipes up to Dia of 4 meters. CUL is also working on introducing some new products to the Indian market. There are various precast products used in the global market, such as precast piles, walls, and other similar products, which when offered in the Indian market by us would cut the construction period by 30 percent or 40 percent.
"At CUL, we are devoted to bringing highly developed products as per customer specifications. To clock in larger contracts in existing states and securing contracts in new states is the key to drive in consistent growth", Ramesh Saraogi concludes.
