Sub – Contractor


M/s. YONGNAM ENGINEERING – Sub – Contractor, for Bengaluru Airport, had a requirement of hollow sections 350 mm X 250 mm X 10 mm from BIAL’s preferred make list suppliers for constructing the Terminal building. The preferred make list suppliers were not able to manufacture the required sizes since they had the capability and capacity constraints. 

YONGNAM ENGINEERING had almost taken a decision to import these sizes from China with a 60 day lead time which would have increased costs. 

The contractor approached APL Apollo Tubes Ltd, for supplying Hollow Sections of size 350 mm X 250 mm X 10 mm. APL APOLLO was able to provide the required sizes and quantity within 7 days of issuing the purchase order. 

This was possible because of DFT (Direct Forming Technology) which is installed only with APL APOLLO in India. This technology helps in giving customized sizes, greater flexibility and minimal lead time. 

Conclusion: APL Apollo has the technology to service Customised Sizes in Minimal Lead Time  


Shapoorji Pallonji & Co. Pvt Ltd

Kartarpur Corridor is a very prestigious project, which is a gateway for pilgrims to visit the Gurdwara Kartarpur Sahib in Pakistan. The project is under the limelight of different international and national media houses as this project can be a stepping stone towards improving ties between two countries. 

The project is scheduled to be inaugurated as per the defined timeline. The contractors of the project were running behind time with their approved vendors for supplying structural pipes & tubes. However, approved vendors were unable to cater to the demand due to shorter lead time. 

Creative Group & Shapoorji Pallonji & Co. Pvt. Ltd approached APL Apollo Tubes and requested to supply the required structural pipes & tubes in a given time frame.

The principals to the project – Land Port Authority of India, a part of the Ministry of Home Affairs, were approached by APL Apollo along with Creative Group & Shapoorji Pallonji & Co, to get the approval along with LOI. A presentation was made by APL Apollo to the concerned authorities which highlighted the manufacturing capabilities along with the credentials of the company.

APL Apollo was given a pre-approval on the 24 July, 2019 & an LOI on the 26 July, 2019 to supply structural pipes. 

APL Apollo started dispatches from 27 July, 2019 and supplied approximately 500 Tons out of the total requirement of 615 Tons within 7days of LOI.

Conclusion: Faster Delivery, Flexibility on Sizes, Proximity of Plant Locations

Tubular Sculpture

Mumbai, Maharashtra, India

Over the years, APL Apollo has achieved a reputation as one of the lowest cost manufacturers by bringing in the latest technology to make optimum use of resources. 

For this INR 2.5 million project, APL Apollo designed and conducted analyses to achieve the architect’s aesthetic vision for a unique tubular steel sculpture. 

Our Project project team combined analytical and physical modeling, created physical models to enable digital workflows, and automatically generated analytical models. Applications were used to manage bidirectional changes in the 3D models and automate the meshing process. 

The project was completed with accuracy in analysis and design that saved 250 resource hours and reduced design costs by 15%.


(Delhi to Panipat)

APL Apollo was tasked with designing foot over bridges between Delhi’s Mukarba Chowk to Panipat’s Haryana, allowing pedestrians to safely cross the roads. For the estimated INR 165 million project, the FOBs also needed to have a 60-meter clear span with ramps and stairs, as well as escalators or elevators if necessary. 

We used 150 metric tons of steel instead of the standard 175 to 200 metric tons to keep the design aesthetically pleasing.

We planned to manufacture the foot over bridges using high strength steel tubes and created a design that is both functional and beautiful.
