Welcome to HMT, a Premier Indian Central Public Sector Enterprise. Our journey as Hindustan Machine Tools Limited began in a small way by setting up a machine tool factory in Bengaluru in 1953, to meet a big commitment:
“To build mother machines to build a modern industrial India”
With the success achieved in absorbing the technology and attaining production competence, we set up Machine Tool manufacturing units at Pinjore, Kalamassery, Hyderabad, and took over a unit in Ajmer, with the objective of producing machine tools required for building an industrial edifice for the country. Further, to meet the needs of the country, we diversified and expanded our product range to include Watches, Tractors, Printing Machinery, Dairy Machinery, Metal & Plastic Forming Machines, Bearings etc., and set up factories across the country, to emerge as an engineering conglomerate. In 1978, Hindustan Machine Tools Limited was renamed as HMT Limited in keeping with its diversified product range.
HMT has played a vital role in the industrial and economic growth of the country by supplying required machines to various strategic and infrastructure sectors, in pursuit of making India Self-reliant. Today, HMT is one of the leading suppliers of Machine Tools and auxiliary machines and equipments meeting the India’s strategic needs in the areas of Defence, Aerospace, Power, Nuclear, Railways and other strategic sectors and also in the design, development, manufacture and supply of import-substitute products. We have the know-how and know-why from leading 36 collaborators from 12 countries. We have our own in-house research and product development wing in each manufacturing facility to build products suiting to customers’ specifications. Our marketing and servicing network across India feel the pulse of the market and continue to deliver products and services to customers delight. We have been making commendable contributions towards manufacture and supply of import-substitute products and continue to contribute in the nation-building endeavor. Our exports are channeled through our export arm, HMT (International) Limited which has an agency network across the globe and also executes turn-key projects from concept-to-commissioning in India and abroad. Over 27 projects have been implemented in 12 countries.
Recently, HMT has taken the decision to divest the non-core businesses of the Company and focus on the core objective of building Machine Tools and Capital Goods required by the Indian Industry, in view of the enormous potential of the sector and to enhance the level of services to the Strategic Sectors of the Nation. We aim to be a Technology Leader in Machine Tool Products & Services and transform the industry enabling it to reach higher levels. In this direction, we are taking various measures to upgrade technology, modernize facilities, adopt contemporary business models and build capabilities to meet the emerging needs of the Capital Goods Sector, as also, foray into new allied sectors. Plans for establishing Common Engineering Facilities Centre for use by MSME sectors and startups as part of “Make in India” and “Skill India” initiatives for empowerment of youth are also on the anvil. The Dairy Machinery Unit at Aurangabad, Maharashtra continues to enhance the milk processing capabilities of the nation.
The strategic plans, policies and programmes of the Company and subsidiaries are evolved and coordinated for implementation at the Corporate Head Quarters and Registered Office at “HMT Bhavan”, #59, Bellary Road, Bengaluru, Karnataka, INDIA, Pin-560032.
