As a result of this planned development, Cooper Corporation will expand its range of engines from 3.5 KVA to 1,000 KVA. The entire range will be available in both diesel and CNG versions. ´It´s a very proud moment for us and a big achievement for a company which has graduated from cast iron engine components to contemporary engines. With this association with Ricardo UK, we will be covering almost 75 per cent of the range of products available in the market, putting us in the same league as the biggest players in the industry in a relatively short period of time,´ said Farrokh N Cooper, Chairman and Managing Director, Cooper Corporation.
Talking about the company´s growth and future plans, Cooper added, ´Despite the overall recessionary trends in the country, Cooper Corporation has witnessed consistent and aggressive growth for the past five years across sectors because of our reputation for technology, after market support and commitment to quality and service. Going forward, we intend to expand all our capacities in the cast iron foundry, aluminum foundry, engine lines etc, and double our current turnover of Rs 700 crore in the next five years.´
´Ricardo is proud to be partnering Cooper in the development of its class-leading family of engines that deliver high quality, clean and fuel efficient power to Cooper´s customers in India and around the world,´ said Martin Fausset, Managing Director, Ricardo UK. ´The collaboration between Ricardo and Cooper has been extremely successful in enabling Cooper to fulfill its ambitious plans for product development. Ricardo is pleased to have been able to work with Cooper in what has been û and remains - a fine example of engineering, technology and product innovation collaboration between the UK and India,´ Fausset added.
The successful longstanding association between Cooper and Ricardo has made Cooper products years ahead of competition in terms of innovative technologies, total cost of ownership and durability of products. Working together with Ricardo, Cooper is the only company in India which has made 52 variants of engines in six years including diesel and gas. The new Cooper engines will power applications for diverse sectors including automotive, gensets, marine, defence, construction equipment and agriculture.
Cooper sums up, ´At Cooper, we always emphasise on farsighted vision to understand future requirements and invest aptly in technology up-gradation well in advance. In fact, we were the first company to push for CPCB II emission norms as we were future ready. Unlike others in the market who needed to invest to ensure compliance, we were able to straightaway go to market with our products. As a company, we believe in progressive global technologies that ensure business success for us and all our partners.´
