This case study is about Somaiya College of Engineering, a college in Mumbai, and how we helped them organize their workspace by installing Pegboards.
The Story of The Somaiya Trust
The Somaiya Vidyavihar Complex, founded in 1959 by the late Shri K.J. Somaiya (1902-1999), is a monument to his vision and efforts. Endowed with sharp business acumen, a balanced perspective, and a social bent of mind, Karamshibhai set up the Somaiya Trust in 1953 for furthering his dream of shaping young minds through quality education. For this purpose, he bought a large area of land at Ghatkopar, then considered to be distant, and meagrely populated. Since its inception, this educational complex has grown into a large number of institutions catering to diverse fields of education, including Humanities, Engineering, Education, and Medicine. As of today, the institution has more than 39000+ students and 3000+ faculty members on a 50-acre campus!
The Challenge Of Placing And Organizing Tools In The Mechanical Department
KJ Somaiya College has many verticals inside its campus. For their engineering college in the mechanical stream, they were looking to hang and organize their tools so that students can easily place and find the tools. They searched in the market and found a product called pegboard. They also started looking on IndiaMart for the same and found it difficult to find a desirable size. Another issue that arose during this search was finding vendors who would be willing to provide custom sizes of pegboard.
Why Somaiya College Chose Furnace
When they went out to find vendors for their pegboard needs, they came across Furnace on IndiaMart. We spoke with them and shared our pre-configured catalog with them. In that, they got various sizes of pegboards (square/rectangle) and liked this. They also found our products standardized and that they are of good quality. They also liked that we have accessories in our catalog that they can organize tools on the pegboard with ease. Another thing they liked was our starter and adder system where they can easily add multiple pegboards into their workplace as well as anyplace else.
How Furnace Responded
We listened to their issues and began working on the project. We shared our Product Catalog for them to choose from, and manufactured the desired size of the Pegboard. We delivered it within the promised timeline.
The staff at the college was pleased with our pegboard because it was easily assembled by themselves. This led them to have an organized place where they can place their tools and access the same easily.
