The Bengaluru-based company was founded in 2018 by Amrit Acharya, Srinath Ramakkrushnan, Rahul Sharma and Vishal Chaudhary. The company connects mid-to-large original equipment manufacturers from India and Southeast Asia with firms that require custom products and machine parts.

The startup claims to have forged partnerships in segments such as precision parts, capital goods and consumer goods. The product categories it serves include prefabricated structures for infrastructure projects, sheet metal for electric vehicles, precision parts for aerospace, and assembly lines for consumer durables.

Acharya had told VCCircle in a recent interview that the company was eyeing international expansion, and exploring inorganic opportunities through acquisitions.
