EKKI’s ‘40+ Into the Golden Era’

Pumps & Water Technologies manufacturing major EKKI has launched a global campaign called “40+Into the Golden Era” celebrating the company’s 40-year anniversary, showcasing key moments of pioneering progress throughout the past 4 decades starting from Deccan to EKKI since 1981.

The campaign begins marking 40 years since the company’s founder P.Arumugam along with his uncle KK Veluchamy and friend MS Sundaram started making pumps in 1981 under the Deccan Brand.

In 1981 the group began making pumps under the DECCAN brand, followed by creation of EKKI which acquired Deccan Pumps Pvt Ltd in 2013 and rebranding itself as one “EKKI Water Technology Group”. Some of the key milestones of the group include the launch of the Vertical Open-well Submersibles, Closed coupled Sub-Sevak Submersibles, Forging India’s first Waste Water JV with global waste water leader HOMA and making it to the world leading Insead Business School as an MBA case study.

Kanishka Arumugam, Co-Ceo of EKKI said, “My father founded the group in 1981 with an initial investment Rs 50,000 (650 USD$), we have come a long way since then”.

“To celebrate 40 Years of pump making, EKKI will host key events throughout the year with its partners, suppliers, dealers and employees under the “40+ Into the Golden Era” campaign”.

The 40+ campaign looks to the future, exploring how EKKI continues to shape the water industry with pioneering innovations that address some of society’s most critical issue of access to clean water to all.
