When the going gets tough...
There’s no denying that the start of 2016 has proven challenging for the global economy. In this context, it’s particularly rewarding to celebrate a company that is not only surviving, but thriving: DeeTee Industries Limited, one of Elquip’s valued partners and principals, has just marked its 40th year in business and is now looking ahead to its maiden century. DeeTee has pioneered the manufacture in India of industrial tools that have taken their place alongside international brands; while having the added advantage of extremely competitive pricing.
The success of this approach can be read in the numbers. Customers in more than 65 countries will attest that DeeTee tools live up to the promise behind their tagline: ‘Determination to establish excellence through efficiency and expertise’.
An expanding range
DeeTee’s 40th anniversary isn’t the only milestone that we’re celebrating. As of 2016, Elquip Solutions has represented the company in South Africa for five years. Our customers have benefited from DeeTee’s extensive catalogue of tools that include slit line tooling, hot and cold shear blades, tube cut-off knives, shafts and arbors – and a wide variety of rolls. The company supplies tube/section forming rolls, bar and wire-rod mill rolls, leveller rolls, alignment rolls, pinch rolls and the ISO-certified cold rolling mill rolls, among others.
Executive Director Aradhya Baheti notes that DeeTee is currently looking to increase its presence in the seamless pipe plant market, where push bench rolls and stretch-reducing mill rolls are always in demand. The company has also expanded its product range, and now supplies dual hardness rubber rings, TiN coated and Cr plated separator discs, light weight spacers and mirror finish slitter knives.
The latest in sawing technology
When one of the world’s leading stainless steel producers gives you a vote of confidence, you know you’re on the right track! Our partner Behringer recently earned accolades from Dörrenberg Edelstahl, which has bought some 70 sawing machines from the Kirchardt-based company over the years. Some of the factors behind Dörrenberg becoming a repeat customer: Behringer’s ability to provide machines that cater for a wide variety of operations, can be used across a range of cross sections, and which combine high productivity with precision. This technology was on display in February at METAV 2016, one of the leading trade fairs for metal-processing technologies.
