Unique Group Boosts Its ‘Make in India’ Drive with the Expansion of Diving Manufacturing Capabilities

Unique Group (India) - Leading integrated subsea and offshore solutions provider, Unique Group, has expanded its diving manufacturing capabilities in Vadodara as part of the company’s “Make in India” growth strategy. This is in addition to the multi-million-rupee investment made in 2020, which together will provide the infrastructure to support contractors and the Indian Navy and defense sector’s diving requirements in the region.

The state-of-the-art facility, which spans over 20,000 sq ft of manufacturing and assembly, is currently seeing the manufacturing of classed Saturation Diving Systems and Submersible vehicles for key customers in the region, including owners of commercial diving vessels. To boost its “Make in India” initiative, the company has also started locally manufacturing Launch and Recovery systems including hydraulic controls as well as electrical switchboards and panels. For future expansion, indigenised Unmanned Surface Vessels (USV) and other key integrated projects are also being planned from the new facilities.

The company has set up class-approved partner facilities in the southern states of Kerala and Tamil Nadu, providing clients with increased accessibility throughout India. Plans are also underway to establish a presence in the Eastern part of India over the coming months. Signaling accelerated growth through 2021 with rising demand for diving products, the company aims to expand the team to over 200 employees, as the projects progress through different phases.

Speaking about the strategy, Sahil Gandhi, Unique Group’s COO, commented:

“Unique Group is proud to be contributing to the “Make in India” campaign by supporting strong business growth locally over the last 18 months. We will continue our long-term commitment in designing, engineering and manufacturing world class diving related systems while also supporting a thriving local workforce.”

Dr. A. Sharad Kumar, Director of Projects-India at Unique Group, added:

“The diving industry is significantly gaining momentum in India, and with major players opening up long term charters for at least five commercial diving vessels, it is very welcoming to see a plethora of offshore and deep-sea opportunities along the East and West coast of India, in a post COVID era. We continue to contribute to the economy with over INR 300 crores worth of business being generated via the ongoing orders and look forward to winning more orders in the coming months “
