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
