|Bachmann India was established in 1987 as an Indo- American Joint – Venture to address the need for highly engineered flue gas control and isolation equipment in the India sub – cotinent. A significant equity ownership is retained by Wahlco-Metroflex Inc., USA (now, part of the Senior Plc group), which provides original technical inputs for the design and supply of a comprehensive range of dampers, expansion joints and ductings.
Commencing from its first factory in Faridabad, Bachmann design dampers and diverters soon achieved rapid acceptance in the Indian market. Fabric expansion joints utilize high quality fabric composites custom engineered by our long experience in this field. Turnkey supply of Gas Turbine Inlet & Exhaust Systems commenced in 1996 in association with an Australian company (now part of Downer Engineering).
Operational flexibility is provided by a second design and manufacturing unit in South Inidia set-up in 2001 at Ambattur in Chennai. An early achievement of this unit was supply of six(6) off frame5 and Frame6 exhaust systems to Oman thru L & T. Bachmann India is the only Indian company to have supplied the Gas Flow Diverter for the massive Frame-9FA Gas-Turbine (PPCL, Bawana projects thru BHEL).High quality Acoustic Enclosure are supplied using the characteristic modular panel system developed by NAP Acoustics, who also provides the engineering expertise for steam Vent Silencers.
