Crompton Greaves Consumer Electricals Ltd. manufactures and markets a wide spectrum of consumer products ranging from fans, light sources and luminaires, pumps and household appliances, such as geysers, mixer grinders, toasters and irons. Crompton has been the market leader in fans, domestic pumps and street lighting for over 20 years.
Crompton is a century old brand and has been setting the standard for product quality, reliability and performance. It has manufacturing locations in Goa, Vadodara, Ahmednagar and Baddi.
Crompton Greaves’ Lighting Division plant is in Vadodara. The plant manufactures all the light sources and luminaires for the Company. Light manufacturing involves extensive chemical processes from the start to finish.
Three years ago the plant replaced its roof with metal roofing sheets. One year on, the metal roofing sheets started corroding. The industrial pollution of the city combined with the chemical fumes from the light manufacturing process have affected the metal sheets and corroded them.
The damaged roofing sheets were exposing the plant interiors to the natural elements and putting the plant equipment, material and men to risk.
The plant needed roofing sheets that will be durable, last long and provide a comfortable working condition for the employees.
Ramco Greencor – Non-asbestos Fibre Roofing Sheets
Made of high quality non-asbestos fibre & cement, Ramco Greencor is the new age roofing sheet. Unlike metal roofing sheets, it is not affected by pollution or marine environments. It stays strong and provides a perfect working condition for years.
