Speaking on the occasion, Chief guest Dr. Patangrao Kadam said, “KBL is an ideal example of a professionally family run business with a strong social responsibility. KBL has played a very crucial part in the development of the country and most importantly has sown seeds of industrial development in rural parts of the country. It is indeed a great privilege to be part of the KBL family as Kirloskarvadi falls under my constituency and most importantly it’s a great honor to be part of the family which had the visionaries like Laxmanrao and Shantanurao. Today KBL is a leading global manufacturer of pumps. KBL’s technology today is used by major cities in the world.”
Mr. Sanjay Kirloskar, Chairman and Managing Director (KBL) said: “The year-long celebration has left us all feeling proud and nostalgic. Since its inception, the Kirloskar spirit of enterprise has played a significant role in meeting the needs of both – agriculture and the industrial sector. Kirloskars were and are in forefront to implement and execute government’s expectations from Industry, whether it is the agenda of rural development, industrialization or globalization. In response to the commitment our Prime Minister has given to the world community to reduce India’s carbon foot-print, KBL has come up with a series of energy efficient and Lowest Life-cycle Cost products. These highly evolved efficient pumps have been designed for long life and low maintenance cost. On the other hand, KBL has a huge range of Bureau of Energy Efficiency rated 5 Star pumps for use by individual farmers in agriculture. KBL invests a great deal of time and money on research and development of environmentally friendly products. To its credit are eight US patents on such products. It would do well if the government encourages use of such products and promotes energy conservation as a culture.”
The day long function also included felicitations of twelve fourth generation KBL employees, where in all the four generations have worked with KBL. The dignitaries present for the day-long function in the evening were enthralled by santoor maestro Pandit Shivkumar Sharma accompanied by Pandit Vijay Ghate on Tabala and Pandit Bhawani Shankar on Pakhawaj.
