PEBS Pennar to Ramp up Engineering Service Outsourcing Business


Press Trust of India HYDERABAD
/ -- Pennar Engineering Services, a division of Pennar Engineered Building Systems (PEBS Pennar), sees big opportunities in engineering design outsourcing services. Pennar's engineering services outsourcing has already made inroads in the US market and has undertaken significant work for multiple clients. Started in FY 2015, the engineering services division has already registered a revenue of INR 60 crore. PEBS Pennar expects this division to grow at a CAGR of 30% over the next 5 years.
Structural steel detailing is an important and mandatory process in all types of manufacturing and construction activities, such as erection of residential and commercial buildings, factories and institutes, as well as shipbuilding. The process of steel detailing is a vital 'communications link' that connects key professionals such as engineers, architects, contractors, fabricators and others - all of whom are individually and collectively responsible for the highest levels of accuracy at each stage. Structural steel detailing is a critical process of structural engineering and demands near-100% accuracy. Even a tiny error can lead to a loss of valuable time and money. India is rapidly capturing large market share in engineering design outsourcing and set to increase its market share from 20% in 2009 to 25-30% by 2020.
