Founded in 1952, the Southern India Engineering Manufacturers' Association (SIEMA) has seen or rather overseen the gradual growth of Coimbatore to a leading engineering manufacturing hub in India. As stated as its sole objective SIEMA stands to represent and protect the interests of Micro, Small, Medium and Large Scale Engineering Industries of the region.
Coimbatore’s manufacturing industry has a rich history to tell. In the year 1930, the first pump was produced in Coimbatore and in 1937 the first motor in India was produced in Coimbatore. The manufacturing units in Coimbatore cater to nearly 45 percent of India’s pump sets requirements and the pumps made here are being exported for the past 25 years. It should be noted that there are more than 300 BIS Licensees in and around Coimbatore, which is the largest at a single place in India.
The members of the associations are mostly engaged in manufacturing electric motors, monoblocks, pumps, submersible pump sets, diesel engines, foot valves and such agricultural manufacturing products, centrifugal and centripetal pumps, textile machineries, spares and parts, starters, switches, air and bore well compressor pumps, rough castings, steel castings, s.g. iron castings and auto components.
SIEMA offers the perfect platform for industrialists to share knowledge and best practices in manufacturing in addition to representing its member’s grievances to the Government and other agencies.
The association works closely with the Bureau of Energy Efficiency, Ministry of Power, Government of India to formulate standards for Energy conservation in Motor and Pumps. It has also created a Technical Committee to study the above subject with the representatives of IEEMA, IPMA, AIEMMA, ICPC and few leading motor pump manufacturers in this region.
T.C.Thiagarajan is the current President of SIEMA, V.Lakshminarayasamy is the Managing Director, K.K. Rajan is the Chief Executive and V. Krishnakumar serves as the General Manager of the association.
