HYLITE - Jan 2023 16 Jan 2023


To begin with, I take this opportunity to wish everyone a very happy 2023!
As we celebrate 75 years of Independence, it is a matter of great pride that globally India has grown to become the 6th largest economy as per media reports. In fact, amidst the global economic turbulence triggered due to the pandemic, the Indian economy has remained relatively resilient thus far and is expected to be amongst the fastest growing economies worldwide in the years to come.

Avlock had also been on a similar path and we have witnessed historic growth in 2022. I feel gratified that all our efforts are paying off and this encourages and inspires me to work with even more zeal towards meeting our organisational aspirations.

It is also historic and a proud moment for India that on 1st December 2022, India took over G20 Presidency for a period of one year. The G20 countries collectively account for more than 80% of the global GDP, 75% of global trade, and 60% of the global population. It is noteworthy that this presidency has been assumed at a time when the world is dealing with geopolitical tensions, economic slowdown and rising food and energy prices.
It is time to step up for us as an organization and contribute, to the best of our abilities, to the massive growth opportunity which lies ahead. It’s time for us to spread our wings and focus on export opportunities as well.  In order to do so, we need to not just strengthen our partnerships but to also bolster our capabilities further, to keep abreast with the growing demands of the Fastener and Sealing technology in India.
I would also like to thank all our partners who have helped us achieve this.  This time I want to make a special mention of our amazingly talented employees who have worked so hard to get us to where we are.  
Keep it up team Avlock!
Sameer Bulchandani, Director, Avlock India




Avlock India's Annual meet was held in April 2022, wherein we focused on reviewing our last year’s progress and strategies to grow the business along with growing demand of INR 460 bn worth fastener industry. Our Heavy, Light & SFC division have shown tremendous growth in last FY 2021-22 by 78%, 87% and 34% respectively. In order to achieve our goal of reaching the coveted mark in terms of revenue by 2025, we need to start with a small amount. This financial year we are aiming high and by the end of the second quarter we have already crossed more than half of our targets, which has been made possible only due to our sales team’s constant hard-work and dedication towards Avlock India’s aspirations.
As one of the major tier 3 suppliers to top Automotive & Rail wagon manufacturers, our intent is to become leading fastener provider for Whitegoods, Bus Body Builders, Electrical, Medical and Construction Businesses also. Our expert engineers have even listed out several new applications for the trending Electric Vehicle industry. The use of our fasteners, installation tools & sealing-flow control solution eventually reduces machining process & provide even more sturdy and durable fastening & sealing solutions. 
Sales meet ended with lots of excitement and boosted morale of all our employees. With the kind of determination displayed by our team members, we are sure to reach our target within stipulated time in each of the upcoming year ahead. 



For the second quarter of FY 2022-23 we already have sold INR 15 Crores worth of lockbolts and the sales figures are increasing day-by-day, advancing towards our aim of INR 100 crores worth turnover. Sheer volume of orders indicates the kind of trust which wagon builders and Indian Railways have on Avlock India. Our fasteners provide strong & durable fastening and installation solution to ensure the safety of their cargos/passengers. We take immense pride in having so much of faith by our esteemed customers and are constantly working towards offering better services and upgraded products.



Due to ever-increasing demand and following the 'Make in India' initiative, we have decided to expand our local manufacturing of lockbolts and hydraulic powerpacks. We have already started our hunt for new facility in the locality. This warehouse will be entirely dedicated to Heavy engineering manufacturing process & storage.



This year we are pleased and excited to start a partnership with ‘MUNGO”. Mungo have gained experience & technical know-how for more than 50 years. With this partnership, we aim to tap into new construction markets and provide the market with high-quality engineered heavy-duty fasteners. Products offered by Mungo can be broadly classified into 3 categories i.e., Metal Fasteners, Nylon Fasteners and Chemical Fasteners.

These Include Through bolts, Anchors, Screws, Nylon Plugs, Sound insulation plugs, Brick plugs, Dispenser Foam, Polyester mortar, Cordless Injection guns and more, which are used for construction of buildings, roads, dams, bridges, metro stations & many more. These buildings and construction fasteners are used in heavy-duty applications to affix concrete / concrete steel materials together. They withstand the stress of the building environment with high precision & strength.



n November 2022 we participated in one of the Asia’s biggest Auto EV Exhibition in Bengaluru. The exhibition gave us an ideal opportunity to highlight the wide range of EV sealing technology & fastening solutions under one roof. We focused on our products which are used in Electric Vehicle manufacturing viz; SFC expander plugs, Flow control products like non-return valve (NRV), restrictors, Honsel powertrain fasteners like Blind rivet screw, Blind rivet nut (headless), Blind Rivet Nut, Coils, Hvfix, Soundfix, PCF clinch fasteners etc.  The exhibition was a huge success with an overwhelming response.
