Austrade (VIC) is currently seeking expressions of interest from suitably qualified suppliers in relation to an opportunity to partner with a leading Indian company for grey water recycling systems for commercial and residential use.
As part of their India development program, the Indian arm of a global pump manufacturer is looking at diversifying to grey water recycling systems. The company is interested in collaborating with Australian companies to manufacture recycling systems to treat grey water from washing basins (if possible from washing machines also) for using it as flushing water in toilets. It is preferable to have portable equipment which could be fitted under the wash basin for domestic purposes.
The grey water recycling system would be useds in households (flats, villas, etc.) and potentially in hotels.
The company is a leading Indian pump manufacturer, established in India in 1998 and presently has a 5% market share in India. In addition to providing its products to the Indian market, the company supplies its product to Bangladesh, Bhutan and Maldives. The company has more than 250 employees and works with 200 distributors with 20 offices across India. The company has two production facilities, one adjoined to its corporate office in Chennai and another in the Special Economic Zone (SEZ) on the East Coast Road, Tamil Nadu.
The company is also one of the worlds leading pump manufacturers with an annual production of more than 16 million pump units. The company’s main products include circulator pumps for heating and air-conditioning as well as other centrifugal pumps for the industry, water supply, sewage and dosing. The company’s pumps have applications across an entire gamut of industries. The company also has solar pump offerings for rural and agricultural applications to help address the lack of electricity in some of these locations.

1. Innovative technology;
2. Adaptability to Indian conditions;
3. Portability and ease of installation and maintenance.
