Madhya Pradesh based, Dynamech Engineers is a manufacturer and exporter of traditional Indian snack-making machines and chip-making machines. Manohar Mirchandani, a mechanical engineer, started the company in 1985. He envisioned the development of more straightforward solutions to reach small and medium enterprises at an affordable price.
Ravi Mirchandani, director of Dynamic Engineers, says, “The company is focussed on developing snack food technologies. The journey started when people were using coal to make Mithais and Namkeens, and we shifted from coal to diesel. The first product we developed was a diesel furnace. After that, we slowly entered into the snack food business. Since the beginning, our journey has been full of inventions, innovations, and continuous research.”
With its four manufacturing plants in Indore (the latest is under development on an ample space near Sanwer Road), the company excels in the domain of food processing machines and automatic snack-making machinery. It also offers services from designing to commissioning of food processing equipment according to individual requirements and specifications.
The duty of engineers
Mirchandani states that 1985 was not the era of automated technologies, and during that time, snack manufacturers were making snacks by hand. While speaking about their first extruder for sev-making, he says, “One snack manufacturer came to my father and explained his problem. The manufacturer was irked because of not getting sufficient production. We developed an extruder to sort his problem. It was one of the first extruders in the world for snacks in 1988, and after that, we developed many products. Whenever requirements arose, and whenever we felt that our clients were facing difficulties, we sorted these out with our machines. For example, clients told us that they were facing problems in kneading, and so we made kneading machines for them, and so on.”
“We listen to our customers, and even if the solution they demand is not in our portfolio, we customize a solution based on their need. We believe that it is our duty as engineers to solve their problems,” he adds.
From raw material to finished product
Dynamech offers a complete range of solutions for snack manufacturing, including complete namkeen solutions, potato chip machinery, and other solutions comprising machines such as centrifugal dryers, kneading machines, potato peeling machines, potato ripple wafers machines, sev extruders, automatic frying systems for Indian snacks, and slicers.
According to Mirchandani, the company believes in word-of-mouth sales and has more than 24,000 clients in India. He says, “With our impeccable design and sound customer servicing, we have developed a broad client base across the globe. We have made inroads in emerging markets through our high-quality equipment, cost efficiency, and timely deliveries. Big players in the market today, including Haldiram, Bikanerwala Food Products (Bikano), Akash Namkeens, and many others, started their business with our machinery. Even today, they buy small machines from us.”
He proudly states that the company offers robust engineering solutions that can run 24 hours and last more than 20 years. “Our current machines are easy to handle and fully automatic. You can have these technologies at a reasonable price compared to European machines, which are ten times higher in price. We believe in affordable and robust engineering technologies as we want to become the largest and most innovative player in developing machines to automate all processes at the most economical prices.”
