GPL was founded in the year 1948 and soon came of age as one of the leading suppliers of Wire Rope Suspension Kits, Lampholders, Lamp Bases, Brass Components and much more. One of our mentionable projects was working with Apollo with whom we were associated as manufacturers, our scope limited to supplies only. We were in specification by them right from the initiation of the project and we have continued to be so since then.
Apollo Tyres is an Indian multinational tyre manufacturing company. It was incorporated in 1972 and today stands with five manufacturing units in India, Netherlands, and Hungary.
We were involved with working with Apollo as manufacturers with our scope limited to supplying solely. Apollo was aware of our presence in the industry and we have always been in specification since the beginning of the project.
The challenge faced in this project involved getting the GPL made products approved for the project. This further led to the demand to work with the complete value chain, including showcasing a mock-up at the site.
We worked closely with the Apollo team and dedicated ourselves to working with each influencer in the value chain, making sure that our products were approved in order to emerge as one of the lowest bidders. We achieved our goal of completing the entire supply within 1 week of receiving the final Purchase Order from the clients. The project progression was completed over 3 phases and the clients received all the materials just in time.
Over the course of the project, we were able to build a strong relationship with the client. What initiated as a small order for us, transformed itself into a much larger account which we were able to build through our commitment towards customer trust and satisfaction. Our client was beyond satisfied with our products and services, the quality of the deliverables and they were most satisfied with the commercials. It was indeed one of theworthwhile projects that we were involved in and feel really proud to have been able to participate in it and continue to do so.
