Krasny - In pursuit of New Horizons in Defence
Krasny Defence Technologies Private Limited has expanded its services to the Indian armed forces through various collaborations with both Russian entities for services to the Navy and Western entities for services to the Coast Guard. Krasny is entering into MoU partnership with JSC Concern MORINFORMSYSTEM-AGAT which has received licence for military export. This may be a game changer for Krasny.
With over two decades of excellence in the field of defence equipment maintenance, Krasny Defence Technologies Pvt. Ltd. (formerly Krasny Marine Services Pvt. Ltd.) is expanding its business horizons in India’s defence sector. The company is a three-dimensional services enterprise engaged in rendering technical maintenance and logistic support for the state-of-the-art equipment or systems of the Indian Navy, Naval Aviation and the Indian Coast Guard. With its moto “Serving to Grow & Growing to Serve”, Krasny is today the most preferred ship repair yard for the Indian Coast Guard, successfully undertaking Electrical & Electronic packages, Emergency Dry Dockings and wholesome refits of ICG vessels. Krasny is manned and managed by technocrats of ex-Defence Services, Naval Dockyards and Merchant Marine. Following its unique policy of harnessing the core competence of ex-servicemen and adopting the time-tested HR management principles and practices, the company is progressing on its singular business focus of self-reliance in defence equipment maintenance.
Krasny has set unparalleled records in refit of ships upholding high quality standards, project management skills, timely contract completion, etc. It has over 36 wholesome refits to its credit, all done before time. All these have been achieved without having its own dry dock. This disadvantage is being addressed by tie up with other shipyards along the Western and Eastern Coast.
The Service Support Portfolio of the companies comprises of ship refits & repairs, electronic repairs, outfitting of new ships, turnkey services to OEMs, design support, logistic support (Supply of MIL grade components, Russian origin spares & components, connectors, etc.) and after sales service support.
Established in 1995, Krasny is the first private sector initiative in the field of defence equipment maintenance, when this sector was an exclusive preserve of public-sector companies and defence establishments. It is also the first company in the country formed under the ‘SEMFEX Scheme’ [Self Employment Scheme for Ex-servicemen] in the year 1995, with a business model of “harnessing the unutilized core competence of ex- servicemen” to service the highly technical naval equipment.
