Mr Ashok Mulye

He graduated as a Mechanical Engineer from College of Engineering Pune (COEP), the prestigious college for engineering. He joined Kirloskar Cummins Limited in 1964 as a trainee engineer. His expertise in manufacturing enabled him to develop indigenous parts for various products. He was instrumental in modernizing manufacturing processes by introducing CNC machines back in the 70s that were very rare.

He retired from Kirloskar Cummins Limited in 1984 as the Executive Vice President and began his new venture Poona Couplings Pvt. Ltd. later the same year. The manufacturing facility commenced production in 1986 in a Joint Venture with Holset Engineering Company Limited, United Kingdom. The vision was to develop and cater to the entire range of couplings for all industrial applications and power transmission for electric and diesel drives.

He practiced financial discipline that makes Poona Couplings a debt free company. He has been the backbone, pillar of strength and a pool of knowledge in the organization. His focus on achieving excellence has gained us a lot of credentials.
