Making India proud!
When a Japanese multinational wanted to set up its new facility in Bengaluru, they were looking for a construction partner who would agree upon a 150-days timeline to complete the project in all respects including air-conditioning and landscaping. The contract was to be awarded under stringent penalty clauses, and delay was absolutely unacceptable. There were a few takers for the contract. KNK bid for the project and, in that era, when ready mix concrete, tower cranes and system formworks were not available, it delivered the project on time and earned accolades. KNK made India proud when it delivered a complex new facility in an unbelievable timeline of 150 days.
KNK continued to invest heavily into technology, enabling delivery of projects ahead of time. After a series of initiatives with their highly motivated team, study tours abroad and technology absorption, KNK has now emerged as a front-runner whenever any organisation has to make a choice of contractor. KNK has thereafter grown at 31 per cent CAGR YoY during the last decade.
