Established in 2012 with nine employees, EnerMech’s ‘shared services’ team has become an instrumental part of the company’s engineering offering globally. It also acts as a central hub for business services and IT support to the wider global organisation. With a current headcount of circa 200, the firm saw an 84% headcount growth in 2022, with an initial focus on the semiconductor and manufacturing sector wins.

It has also committed to a long-term lease for office space at Sahar Plaza Complex, Andheri-Kurla Road, Andheri (East), Mumbai.

Rahul joined EnerMech from HSBC where he served for nine years. A qualified chartered and management accountant, he brings over 25 years of progressive experience, with tenures in Bangalore and Kolkata. He has led and implemented multiple streamlining initiatives which resulted in notable efficiencies and cost savings for his business streams across India and Sri Lanka.

Chetan, a seasoned entrepreneur, joined the business early this year bringing 20 years of experience in business management, operational planning and revenue generation. Chetan has been actively involved in EnerMech India since inception handling finance and setting up the shared services in the initial stages.

Rahul commented: “EnerMech has built its success on being able to maintain a high-quality service delivery wherever it operates. When I joined, the initial focus for additional engineering recruitment in India was to bolster the team with piping specialists to work on semiconductor-related projects for the manufacturing industry. Since then, we have also grown our process, pipeline and umbilical engineering team to provide a fast-response deployment team to aid global campaign requirements in key sectors such as infrastructure, energy, and heavy industries.

“We are also building out the business support team with a number of new full-time members, as part of our business integration strategy. We have hired Finance and IT specialists to enhance our centralised round-the-clock cross-functional unit, delivering further efficiencies across the business.

“I am honoured to be part of the leadership team within EnerMech delivering continually improving support to our clients.”

Christian Brown, CEO EnerMech, said: “The Mumbai office was set up 11 years ago and the positive impact the engineering, business support services and IT teams have had on our organisation is undeniable. We are a progressive and employee focussed company and we plan to fortify our offering worldwide by capitalising on the talent pool, systems and shared capabilities in India.

“EnerMech strives to consistently deliver a reliable, high-quality service to our customers that is both cost-effective and competitive. These areas of increased competence and investment in working practices ensure we can scale up our operations and with Rahul at the helm, supported by Chetan, we have the utmost confidence this continues to be assured.”
