Sripad was founded on 6th June 1968 by Late founder Mr. P.S.Easwaran, who did his Practicum in Metallurgy in Germany and worked for Stahlwerk Südwestfalen (Brand: Zapp Fortuna) in the years 1958-1968. He signed up the agency agreement with Benteler Steel/Tube, Germany for marketing their seamless, welded and CDW tubes for automotive, boiler, engineering, heat exchanger, hydraulic, machine tool and petrochemical industrial segments.
Within a couple of years, Mr. Easwaran’s brother-in-law Mr.S.S.Mani joined him as co-partner and set up the Mumbai office.
Soon thereafter several steel mills approached him to represent them in the sub-continent. Subsequently, Sripad became the exclusive Indian agent for various European special steel producers. Sripad has full-fledged marketing offices in Bangalore, Chennai, Coimbatore, Noida, Mumbai and Pune.
These offices are headed by sales directors, each with 50+ years of sales and marketing experience in marketing special steels and steel based industrial products. Our marketing engineers have excellent product and application knowledge and are well trained in India and abroad. Sripad has warehouses in Chennai & Panvel (near Mumbai) equipped with material handling and cutting facilities.
