Kirloskar Oil Engines Ltd. (KOEL)

Kirloskar Oil Engines Ltd. (KOEL) is a leading Diesel Engine and Generator Set (Gen-set) manufacturer in India. They design, manufacture and supply Diesel Engines, which is at the heart of Gen-sets. Though this industry is aware that customers need fast and reliable delivery, KOEL and its competition could only offer customers delivery lead times of over 4-6 weeks because of the complexities in their manufacturing and supply chain. But after moving away from forecast-based model to consumption-based operations, the company is now able to offer guaranteed deliveries in one week. The company’s working-capital-turns also improved phenomenally converting KOEL from a persistently cash-starved business to a healthy one.
