MBA: Industrial Visits

May 10, 2017

The Department of Business Administration at SJEC organized an Industrial Visit to Industrial Area, Baikampady - Mangaluru on 10th May 2017 for the II Semester MBA students. The planning and execution of the industrial visit was done with the help of Mr Henry Britto, President Kanara Small Industries Association (KSIA) - Mangaluru. The team of 48 students from II Semester MBA accompanied by two faculty members, Ms Shakila B & Mr Rakshith Bhandary visited three industries viz. Deccan Plast Industries, Gurucharan Industries, and Lamina Suspension Products Ltd. The visit was scheduled between 9:30 AM to 1:00 PM.


Deccan Plast Industries offer Molded Solutions of plastic molded furniture, like Premium Relax chairs, Premium Arm chairs, Premium Dining Chairs, Mid back arm chairs, Dining chairs, Armless chairs, Chairs for children, Rocker Toy for children and many more. They also manufacture Material Handling solutions which have diverse applications in fishery, food processing, Agro industry, retail shops, and many other storing and transporting applications. The team was divided into 2 groups and two officials from the company were in charge of each group and they were taken around the whole factory and shown the different plants of the entire factory. Thus the students gained practical exposure to the manufacturing process of furniture.


Gurucharan Industry was established in the year 1966 by Mr Jayakar Shettigar to manufacture Plastic Processing Machineries, Allied Machineries, and Spare Parts and Components of Plastic Processing & Allied Machineries. The students were given a close look at some of the important operations that go into the fabrication of massive and complex machine units. The manufacture of machine spare parts was demonstrated.


Lamina Suspension Products Ltd is a manufacturer of leaf springs, automobile leaf springs, grey iron castings, SG iron castings and suspension spares & parts. The students were initially taken to the mechanical testing lab where they were shown the various samples that are tested as well as the testing methods followed. Later they were taken to the actual production area where they witnessed the working of gas furnaces, mechanical and hydraulic punches, rolling, curling and flattening machines etc. that are inevitably a part of most metal forming processes. The last parts of the visit were the assembly and painting areas. The students also got the opportunity to see fully automated functions.


The industrial visit to these three industries was an enriching experience for students in getting live exposure of manufacturing which can help them in their studies and further career enhancements.
