The story of our Company, SEW Engineering (India) Pvt Ltd (SEWEPL), began in 1952 when Mr. Homi Masani set up Starlite Electrical Works. Through a strong work ethic and strict adherence to high quality standards, the Company soon built up a reputation for excellence as well as an impressive Client base.
In fact, the electrical installation works of some of Mumbai city's most well-known landmarks were carried out by Starlite in the 1960's and 1970's. When Mr. Firdaus Masani took over the reins of Starlite from his father in 1979, he knew his job would not be easy. Upholding and furthering a carefully-nurtured reputation in times of tough competition called not just for integrity, it called for ingenuity.
It is to Mr. Firdaus Masani's credit that he has not only upheld the high standards set by his father, but has set new benchmarks in excellence as he steers the Company towards greater heights. His son-in-law, Yuktash Karbhari, holding a diploma in industrial electronics and an electronics engineering degree has joined the business in 2015 taking over the responsibility to drive the overall growth of the organisation.Yuktash Karbhari has spent 10 years of his life in the professional services and consulting world. Mr. Firdaus Masani continues as the Managing Director of the company.
Today the company has evolved as India's one of the best MEP (Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing) engineering services company leveraging upon its rich experience and in-house capability with almost 65% of the turnover coming by way of repeat business or client referrals, indicating the high level of service oriented approach which has contributed to a satisfied customer base.
