VAutomat was started as a Partnership company in the year 1972, by the name of Automat Consulting Engineers with its base in Delhi having the product range as Pneumatic Process Control Instruments. The company was shifted to Okhla to be in close proximity of Industries, Customers and for effective communications. Mr. V.K.BASSI with his 17 years of experience with various Organisations of covering Paper, Chemical and Automation Industries observed that most of the PROCESS CONTROL INSTRUMENTS were being imported. Well versed in Technology and strong in will power, he formed the firm V.AUTOMAT AND INSTRUMENTS (P) LTD. In the beginning AUTOMAT faced tough time as most of the customers were not prepared to take a chance with indigenously instruments because of their use in critical situation.
VAUTOMAT after great efforts somehow succeeded in putting their instruments on free trail to prove that they were not inferior to the imported ones. This approach worked and Organizations like ONGC, Oil India Ltd, NFL, India Oil Corporation Ltd., began to place orders. M/S IOCL Matura replaced all their Russian Controllers with Automat Controllers. With the advent of Electronic Instruments, the whole disposition of the trade began to change. Automat once again opted for indigenous angle and to meet this challenge formed one of the best In-House R & D equipped with the latest of the latest gadgets. Within a span of two years R & D came out with the DISPLACEMENT TYPE LEVEL TRANSMITTER (ELECTRONIC) far superior in Quality and well-adapted to Indian conditions and become the first company to introduce indigenously developed Level Transmitter in the country and has many such feathers in the cap of being first. Innovative and State-of-Art products have been the philosophy of Automat with very strong and determined design department being the backbone of company. The continuous R & D activities to develop innovation designs and present the State-of-Art technologies, not attempted by others are the core theme of all our designs.
VAutomat has made itself capable of maintaining high Quality Standards. To ensure this it has strengthened its Quality Assurance Department, which keeps constant watch from material to finished products at various stages. Besides this, performance reports are collected from the actual user of the instruments to make a practical assessment about the trouble free length of life and various influences the instruments is subjected to during its course of use. In view of the enormous opportunity for Export, Automat started its activities in that direction in the year 1992. A couple of foreign tours, insertion of advertisements in foreign magazines and supporting follow up action gave us a very good response. Today, we have started supplying to Sri Lanka, Singapore, Thailand and Malaysia. Very good business contacts are established in these countries.
