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 outlined in last year’s Paris Agreement, governments are cracking down with stringent regulations for makers and importers of HVACR equipment and promoting LED lighting as an eco-friendly alternative to traditional incandescent bulbs and fixtures. Yesterday’s energy-inefficient technologies are on the fast track to obsolescence. [1]

Challenges

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 that essentially re-converts DC back into AC, necessary to modulate compressors and other internal induction motors. This proved a perfect assignment for our engineering team, specializing in the design and redevelopment of power supplies used in a wide span of electric appliances for over three decades. We put together a new design team specifically for HVACR products, collaborating with the client to co-develop the new inverter successfully. Shortly thereafter, we were contacted by a major European residential and commercial HVACR system maker 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.

Overview

We contribute our 40 years of design and manufacturing expertise spanning multiple diverse markets. 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 in entering 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. Additional road and rail connectivity links to the rest of India and beyond and infrastructure advantages with faster import and export clearances. We also have labor force flexibility, both technical and manual, to scale to demand rapidly.
