Automat was started as a Partnership Company in the year 1972 in the name and style of Automat Consulting Engineers having its base in Delhi with the Product range as Pneumatic Process Control Instruments. The Company was converted into a Private Limited Company in the year 1982.
The Managing Director (Mr. V.K.Bassi) with his 17 years of experience in various Organizations of repute covering Paper, Chemical & Atomic Industries, observed that most of the PROCESS CONTROL INSTRUMENTS were being imported & if the same are manufactured in India, precious foreign exchange can be saved. Well versed in Technology and having a strong will power, he started manufacturing PROCESS CONTROL INSTRUMENTS & these were introduced to the industrial giants like ONGC, Oil India, NFL & Indian Oil Corporation Ltd. Mathura Refinery replaced their entire Russian Controllers with Automat Controllers & similar trend was followed by all Refineries.
With the advent of Electronic Instruments, the whole disposition of the trade began to change. Automat once opted for indigenous angle and to meet this challenge, R&D Division was established with latest of Gadgets. Within a short span of two years, our R&D Centre developed Displacement type Level Transmitters (Electronic) with superior features & yet competitive in price and suited to Indian conditions. With this, Automat became the first Company in India to have introduced indigenously developed Level Transmitters in the country and for export as well.
