Words from the Dignitaries
"Post globalisation the industry has undergone a great amount of transformation. UGC has always kept up with the times and upgraded itself to suit the changing customer requirements. With the growing number of MNCs in its 100 km radius, Chakan has already turned into an auto cluster and there is a special need for material testing facilities to cater to their quality requirements. This laboratory will help the SME sector in their material testing needs, supporting their quality management systems."
R R Deshpande
Executive Director, Kirloskar Oil Engines Limited
"This lab will meet that requirement and consolidate UGC's reputation of being the only company in India to provide one-stop logistic services. With an initial investment of Rs 1.5 crore, world-class equipment, and sample collection facilities, this laboratory will answer the need for a high-tech metal testing facility faced by industries in Bhosari, Talegaon, Ranjangaon, and Western Maharashtra."
