Texmo Industries History
Mr R. Ramaswamy returns from an 10-year stay in England and a graduation in Electrical Engineering from Sheffield University. He sets out to manufacture motors and pumps in a small shed in Coimbatore. Texmo is born.
Our first ever dealer is appointed. Coimbatore, Salem, Madurai, Trichy and then Hyderabad. And from here on, there is no looking back.
Today, we have over 1000 dealers across the country and we have a dedicated training proramme to induct new dealers to our products and customers.
It’s time for our first sales office and warehouse to open its doors in Madras (now Chennai) and begin operations to sell product and service our customers in the region.
A first in India, we launch two updates to our product line. First, a monoblock pump - a pump that's fitted right onto a motor. Second, improving motor efficiencies and performance by the addition of fins to our motor design. That’s where Texmo Pumps got their unique look!
We build two new factories that are still in operation today. The first is where the Head Office operates from today. The second is the one that houses our foundry and pump division. Subsequently, several plants came up. And all of them are operational today.
We begin to computerise our operations and start to embrace a technology revolution. We were among the first to do so in the region.
Here’s to our silver jubilee year!
India sees a revolution in pump technology from Texmo Industries. We introduce the Openwell submersible pump which allows for the pump to be submerged into the bottom of an open well.
A big milestone for engineering design. We start to embrace 2D CAD technology and begin to convert all our engineering drawings to 2D CAD. This would have a lasting impact on our efficiency, accuracy and flawless design.
We bring more products to the market. A line of multi-stage vertical jets, horizontal jets and compressors.
This year is the birth of Taro trademark, in preparation of the launch of a new line of 6" and 8" borewell submersible pumps.
This year, a whole new range of 6" and 8" submersible pumps are launched under the Taro brand.
We build and install a brand new facility specifically for Research & Development of new products. This facility allows us to try and test new technologies and process improvements. We also launch a line of 4" borewell submersibles. Today, it is our best selling product in both the agricultural and domestic sectors.
All Texmo Industries plants are certified to ISO 9001. This marks a big step in providing customer confidence that we have a robust quality management system in place.
Texmo Industries becomes the first pump manufacturer to extend a warranty for its products.
We are awarded 'India's Best Employer' by the Provident Fund Organisation. This year, we also introduce to our customers, a new range of 5" and 7" borewell submersible pumps.
Our Golden Jubilee year. We introduce 4" oil filled motors for our borewell submersibles and offer a new range of slurry pumps for widespread applications.
Enhancements to our Research & Design facilities with software based approach on Electrical Design for motors and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) for pumps design.
A range of single phase vertical submersible pumps are brought into production. This allows for submersible pumps for borewells to be installed in domestic applications where only single-phase power is available.
We are awarded 'the best private employer for employment of differently abled persons' by Tamil Nadu state government. At this point we employ 50+ differently abled people.
We make a giant leap in hydraulic design for efficiency by starting to use Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) software custom built to design pumps.
This year marks the centenary of our founder's birth. We build and bring into production a 175,000 sq. ft. facility to manufacture 4" submersible borewell pumps.
A brand new 265,000 sq. ft. factory to manufacture borewell submersibles from 6" to 8" sizes goes into production. We partner with Skillsonics based in Switzerland to start vocational training courses.
2018 - onwards
2018 saw some our biggest changes to date – A refreshed brand identity, new store designs, a new website and an industry-changing in-store customer experience. 2018 marks a truly exciting time here at Taro Pumps.
