Syrma Develops Eco-Friendly HVACR Components

What’s behind this international scramble for better HVACR components? More and more scientific evidence concludes that power-hungry climate control equipment is a major contributor to worldwide greenhouse gas emissions, the primary cause of global warming. Spurred by international reduction targets set forth in last year’s Paris Agreement, governments are cracking down with stringent regulations for makers and importers of HVACR equipment, as well as promoting LED lighting as an environmentally-friendly alternative to traditional incandescent bulbs and fixtures. Yesterday’s energy-inefficient technologies are on the fast track to obsolescence. [1]


A few years ago, one of our long-time clients, India’s leading home and commercial appliance brand, approached us with design challenges for an energy-efficient power inverter, a vital component of air conditioners which essentially re-converts DC current back into AC, necessary to modulate compressors and other internal induction motors. This proved a perfect assignment for our engineering team, who for over three decades has specialized in design and redevelopment of power supplies used in a wide span of electric appliances.

We put together a new design team specifically for HVACR products, collaborating with the client to successfully co-develop the new inverter. Shortly thereafter, we were contacted by a major European maker of residential and commercial HVACR systems with a similar opportunity. Our initial foray into inverters led us to realize there’s a rapidly growing need among the world’s HVACR OEMs for redesigned, energy-efficient power components at reasonable costs.


Syrma contributes our 40 years of design and manufacturing expertise spanning multiple diverse markets, and we look forward to discussing how we can deliver world-class products for OEMs across the globe. We understand our home Indian market, familiar with its vast regulatory and selling environments. We foster growth opportunities within India through our strong technology incubation ecosystem. We also assist global OEMs seeking to enter the Indian market by leveraging the local supply chain and favorable operating environments for cost reductions.

Our flagship Chennai location opened in 2006 and lies within a Special Economic Zone (SEZ) for electronics manufacturing, offering economic incentives for imports and exports. This primary facility is within 90 minutes of the Chennai seaport and 20 minutes to the international airport, with additional road and rail, connectivity linking to the rest of India and beyond, as well as infrastructure advantages with faster import and export clearances. We also have labor force availability, both technical and manual, to rapidly scale to client demand.
