¨We act quickly on problems and ensure a detailed follow-up to meet commitments.¨ - Sushil Sethi Jain, Managing Director, SPML Infra
Established in 1978, SPML Infra is the only Indian company present across the entire value chain of the water cycle. It is focused on developing smart infrastructure for water supply and distribution, wastewater treatment, management and reuse, and sanitation, including solid waste management. Currently, the company is developing infrastructure projects worth Rs 60,000 million and provides drinking water facility to over 40 million Indians through various projects. In 2014-15, it received new orders worth about Rs 3,000 crore, including 24 × 7 water supply management projects for six cities in Karnataka. Enablers of this success have been speedy execution and completion of projects; advanced systems and processes; superior equipment; experienced engineers; reduced costs on overheads; faster procurement of materials; and integration of key departments.
¨We act quickly on problems, drive for results, and ensure detailed follow-up so we meet our commitments,¨ says Sushil Sethi Jain, Managing Director, SPML Infra. ¨We have a focussed approach towards returns for us and our shareholders, and we avoid underbidding.¨ Going forward, the company has already begun execution on the first smart city in Madhya Pradesh; it will develop a smart city in Ujjain, called Vikram Udyogpuri. Part of the Delhi-Mumbai-Industrial-Corridor (DMIC), this ´mini smart city´ will be the first-of-its-kind.
