Later in technical collaboration with Landwehr Germany the company started manufacturing lubricating equipment. During 2003-04 the company included three new products namely Vayu Series Borewell Compressors 3.5KVA Genset and Electronic Tyre Inflator. In the year 2004-05 the company commissioned its first Four Centrifugal Compressor and Tank Mounted Screw Compressor.The company has obtained the technology for the manufacture of pasteurising plants from Gobel Germany; screw compressors from Sullair Corporation the US; bottle-washing machines from Krones Germany; and automatic vehicle- washing machines from Ceccato Italy.

During 2004-05 the company entered the petrol or kerosine engine business through an association with Robinson of Japan via their associates in Sri Lanka.In Aug. 2000 Elgi Equipments has entered into technical collaborations with Hitachi to produce Oil Free Air Compressors in India. It has also tied up with Samsung Techwin Co Ltd an affiliate of the Samsung group to bring to India their centrifugal compressor - Turbo Master. To upgrade automotive equipment and also to manufacture Compressors with higher capacities and pressures the company has launched a joint technology upgradation plan with City University UK. During 2002-03 the total capital expenditure incurred were Rs.78.12 million and the captial expenditure were funded by way of internal accruals.In the year 2004 the company has entered into a Collaborative Venture with JP Sauer & Sohn Germany to envisage the manufacturing of compressor required for Battle ships. The company made an arrangement with Mahindra & Mahindra for supplying the engines for their gensets in 2004-05.During the financial year ended 31 March 2014 Elgi Equipments incurred Capital Expenditure of Rs 917.23 million of which Rs 584.30 million pertained to plant and machinery through internal accruals. During the year under review the company's new foundry commenced commercial production. This backward integration was done primarily to improve the quality of the company's products. This has been achieved in significant measure besides the added benefit of having a lower cost source for castings.In spite of uncertain market conditions in the domestic market during the year the company retained its market share and pushed ahead in some segments. In the international market the company's new range of products was well received in all markets and able to make a mark in a very short time. This has been particularly observed in the European and American markets. On the other hand the company faced significant challenges in creating a robust distribution channel in Asian markets. In spite of this some significant milestones were achieved the most important being the creation of multiple reference installations for oil free screw compressors.During the year under review in spite of extreme sluggishness in the automotive sector Elgi Equipments' subsidiary ATS Elgi Limited sustained its market share throughout the year. During the financial year ended 31 March 2015 Elgi Equipments' manufacturing facility at the new site became fully operational. This has been achieved with little disturbance to regular production and at least cost.Elgi Equipments continued to perform well in the Middle East and African markets especially with smart growth in industrial compressors.Consequent to Elgi Equipments' decision to restructure its China (Shanghai and Zhejiang) operations by closing down Elgi Compressors Trading (Shanghai) Co Limited and continue to carry on trading operations in Elgi Compressors Zhejiang Limited the company has written down the value of the investments advances and receivables relating to Chinese operations to an extent of Rs. 551.76 million accounting it as an exceptional item to the Statement of Profit and Loss for the financial year ended 31 March 2016.The company's business operations were severely affected in China due to the economic slowdown and hence the company took a decision to restructure the operations in order to minimize losses and approach the market in a focused manner by supplying products that meet the local market requirements.During the year under review Elgi Equipments acquired Ergo Design Private Limited an independent industrial design studio. Ergo Design Private Limited caters to the needs of Elgi Equipments to a large extent. The acquisition was done in order that the company has better control over the Intellectual Property rights created by Ergo Design Private Limited using the company's inputs. During the year under review Elgi Equipments' products continued to be well received by distributors and customers in international markets especially in USA Europe and the Middle East. The high cost of operations in the company's French operations combined with the country's restrictive labour practices made it clear that profitability of Elgi Equipments' wholly owned subsidiary in France Belair SAS is a challenge. The company took a hard decision to handover Belair SAS to the French judicial system for legal redressal. The company had acquired Belair SAS in February 2010 and since then has invested over Euro 6.8 Million to build the business.During the financial year ended 31 March 2017 consequent to Elgi Equipments' decision to restructure its China operations Elgi Compressors (Zhejiang) Limited has de-registered its manufacturing license. The company had promoted and invested in Elgi Compressors (Shanghai) Co. Ltd (ECS) as a trading entity based on local advice at that time that the manufacturing entity namely Elgi Equipments (Zhejiang) Limited could not carry on trading activities. The company had re-examined the matter in the eve of restructuring China operations on the basis of legal advice it was confirmed that Elgi Equipments (Zhejiang) Limited could itself engage in trading activities. Therefore as part of the restructuring process the Board of Directors thought it prudent to wind down ECS. In pursuance thereof select employees of ECS numbering six personnel were transferred to Elgi Equipments (Zhejiang) Limited. Other employees of ECS were let go after following legal procedures. Formalities have been completed at the EXIM office and ECS cannot engage in trading activities now. A clearance is pending from the tax bureau but this does not preclude ECS from proceeding with further action for further winding up. ECS will now apply for filing with the Statutory Authority (Minhang BOC) along with necessary particulars as soon as possible to start the winding-up process officially.Belair SAS France previously the wholly owned subsidiary of Elgi Equipments was handed over to the French Judicial System for legal redressal on 26 April 2016 considering the cost structure and business operations which was challenging for the company for some time. Attempts on finding solution to the problems were not successful. A situation arose where Belair was unable to even meet the routine financial commitments to run its business operations smoothly. Belair was also unable to service its debts to the company. Therefore it was decided to seek protective action before appropriate Commercial Court in Annecy France. The Court appointed an administrator on 28 April 2016. Belair is no longer under the control of Elgi Equipments and is under legal redress as per the French laws. By a judgement and order dated 1 June 2016 and subject to the conditions mentioned therein the Commercial Court of Annecey ordered assignment of Belair's AIRBEL business to AIRMAX HOLDING and pronounced the judicial liquidation of SAS Belair.During the year under review Elgi Equipments incorporated a Limited Liability Partnership in the name of Industrial Air Solutions LLP.
