Description

The process of industrial automation is achieved by a seamless operation of controls and executions, implemented through a complex array of circuitry, connections – wired and wireless – and the ‘foot soldiers’ – an army of smaller components that actually help automate plants and machinery.

 

PHD Inc., USA, has been creating cutting-edge industrial automation solutions since 1957. It offers a diverse spectrum of built-to-need actuators, OEM drop-in components, electric actuators, specialty workholding clamps, and motion control robots. Long life and superior design have become hallmarks of the PHD brand. From single actuators to multi-unit systems, PHD prides itself in creating total solutions for virtually any application requirement, complete with prompt delivery and dedicated support.

 

PHD is a leading manufacturer of industrial automation actuators, designed to help companies across all industries optimise their manufacturing processes. The products consist of a full line of cylinders, escapements, grippers, linear slides, rotary actuators, clamps, multi-motion actuators, switches and sensors. These actuators provide the fundamental motion to push, pull, lift, rotate, turn, grip, reach, clamp, hold, position, escape, insert, load, unload, pick, place, and orient parts or materials in the manufacturing processes.

 

Known for robustness, precision, and extremely long life, PHD products have the attributes and performance design engineers demand. Salient features include:

• Wider range of long-life robust actuators in the industry

• Engineering software and internet tools to simplify and save design time

• Factory trained application and industry specialists ensure a cost-effective and field-proven solution, and

• Short, 1-3 days delivery on most products, the best in the industry!

 

Since 1957, PHD continues to be a leading manufacturer of actuators, helping companies across all industries, optimise their manufacturing processes. PHD Inc is present in the Indian market and Manish Saxena is the Business Head – India, who works along with Gary Murphy, Senior Vice President – Global Sales & Engineering.

Compete Tools – Competent Distributor

Thane (Mumbai) based Compete Tools Pvt Ltd (CTPL) is one of the two distributors of PHD Inc in India. The company is a multi-product Marketing Organisation with strategic tie-ups with some of the leading players in India and abroad, catering to industrial requirements in the fields of automation, pneumatics, electric/pneumatic tools, material handling, spray painting systems, metal marking, etc.

 

Incepted in 1978 under two directors, Mr Mahendra Shah and Mr Ramesh Shah, the company was launched as a partnership firm doing agency business. In 1990 Compete Tools started in the authorised distribution business for many leading brands. In 1998, the operation was reorganised under Compete Tools Pvt Ltd, basically with a vision to expand. Mr Premal Shah, the third director joined the board in 2004. Armed with a BE in Mechanical Engineering and MBA in Marketing, he was instrumental in introducing a full-fledged marketing team by hiring the services of personnel with highly professional competence. In 2008, the fourth director, Mr Nishit Shah, an MBA in Business Administration, came on board and that led to the establishing of manufacturing facilities of marking products under the Bigstar brand. Today, Compete Tools Pvt Ltd has a strong team of 8 qualified engineers handling specific products.

 

Currently CTPL is an authorised distributor of many premium and well-known brands such as: PHD Inc., USA (industrial automation solutions – built-to-need actuators, OEM drop-in components, electric actuators, specialty workholding clamps, and motion control robots), Bigstar (marking machines), MAC Valves (air valves), IMI Norgren (FRLs, valve islands, cylinders), NUCON Industries (heatless dryers, micro filters, valves, cylinders, etc), Ingersoll Rand – (air tools, pneumatic handling, fluid handling, etc), Josts (material handling equipment), Bullows (spray painting systems, paint booths), Firestone (air springs, air bellows), Mody Pumps (submersible pumps), Bosch/Norton (abrasives & accessories), and Kulkarni Power Tools (KPT), Makita and Ralliwolf for electric power tools.

 

Solutions Provider

Compete Tools Pvt Ltd places itself as a solution provider rather than a trading organisation with in-house facilities and capabilities to cater to various customised assignments. The company has strong assets and the prime one is the stocks. Stocks help to service customers just in time and in the process gather goodwill from its valued customers.

 

Identifying a range of complementary products, Compete Tools has successfully managed to establish base with a wide range of products in a variety of end user segments, like Automobile and Auto ancillaries, various process and engineering industries, and other industries like packaging, cement, paper, pharma, tyre, steel, glass, forging, etc., to name a few. Apart from this, it also has a strong presence in various institutions like the Indian Railways, Indian Navy, ordinance factories, BARC, RCF, Mazagon Dock Ltd, etc.

 

Future Plans

There are plans to add additional manpower to achieve a three-fold growth in the sales turnover of the organisation in the next two years. Compete Tools is also currently engaged in finalising few more alliances with some global players who are also the market leaders in their respective fields. On the expansion agenda, the company is keen to get affiliated with pharmaceutical and automobile based products for serving its customer base with a quality package.
