Whale Enterprise’s presence at the IFAT trade fair in Mumbai this week is a clear demonstration of the investment and commitment by the company to date and reflects just how far Whale has come in the Indian market.

Whale Enterprise PVT Limited, is wholly owned subsidiary of Whale Tankers, which is one of Europe’s leading manufacturers of liquid waste tankers and jetting equipment. Based in the town of Solihull – also the home of Land Rover in the centre of the United Kingdom – Whale Tankers operates from a 17 acre industrial site set in an impressive rural setting with a large, highly skilled, multi-disciplined workforce. Producing over 400 complete units per year, the award winning facility is also home to Whale’s comprehensive service and parts operations.

The company has a proven track record regarding quality – for instance it is the largest Vacuum Tanker inspection body in the UK and is accredited by UKAS (United Kingdom Accreditation Service). It currently carries out in excess of 2,500 inspections annually. It is a company that has grown and developed through a determined attitude to succeed by the positive application of enthusiasm, leading to a progressive product evolution spanning a period of nearly 45 years.

Today Whale Tankers has in excess of eighty per cent of the UK market share for waste tankers and is Europe’s largest manufacturer of such vehicles. The company has also expanded its world markets and has exported a varied range of equipment to over 60 countries. Its presence in India dates back over ten years, where it began as a distributor for a number of European component brands. Whale Enterprise PVT, located in the state of Tamilnadu, was itself established to develop dedicated production and support capability in the Indian market.

The company today has two sites, a head office and a manufacturing/warehousing site, both located in the city of Coimbatore. Whale Enterprise PVT currently employs 45 people with a wide range of relevant skills including production, design, development and quality engineers. The company is actively supported by Whale Tankers in the UK, providing access to a wealth of engineering and technical resources and experience.

Whale Enterprise has designed and developed an already extensive product range specifically for the Indian market and it is winning business with both private and municipal operators, as the recent tender success with Erode City Municipal Corporation demonstrates. The success of Whale in Europe over five decades has been founded on excellent parts availability and service support and this is naturally an integral part of its Indian operations.

“Whale Support, quality and training are at the heart of our operation” said Whale Enterprise Director Mr. Shajahan Hussain. “One of Whale’s primary objectives is to maximise operating performance by keeping downtime to an absolute minimum, leading to significantly reduce whole life costs. This is achieved by ensuring we can provide service support across all Indian states. Whale stocks an extensive range of appropriate parts.”

“Whale Enterprises cares about quality across all aspects of its business. We comply to ISO 9001 and all Whale products fully comply with with all relevant legislation and regulations. It also has the benefit from being supported by its UK parent company Whale Tankers the largest manufacturer of vacuum tankers and jetting equipment in Europe.”

“Central to Whale’s success is not only the training of its staff but also the provision of structured training for its product. This meets the changing needs of today’s Indian water and sewage infrastructures. The company is also respected for its onsite commissioning of all new products.”
