Who We Are

We’re an Indian family owned enterprise with origins dating back to 1912 when our ancestral founders along with Stuparich brothers of Italy ventured into shipping and insurance activities.  Over the years, as younger generations with strong academic background and reasonable market exposure joined the family business, they could diversify into insurance and marine surveying, shipping agency, marine engineering repairs and technical supplies. It is in this environment that Skanda Maritime Engineering Co(SMECO) was established and developed.

Speaking of current scenario, we hold a prestigious name in overhaul, reconditioning and supply of marine equipment and spares.  Core personnel of the company are highly qualified Marine Engineers, Naval Architects and Marine Surveyors with a wealth of knowledge in technical and operational aspects of ships.  Our senior management hold numerous professional memberships and accreditations making them top professionals in maritime business with emphasis in ship repairs and organizing technical supplies to ship owning and management companies across the globe.

Being a company with steady and long term focus, we’re sourcing and maintaining decent inventory of new as well as used equipment and spares recovered from ship recycling yards.  Our strong credentials have been complimented by a very successful  association with some of the most respected shipping companies in India and overseas.

Based on our profound experience we meticulously filter and identify manufactories, which enables us to supply OEM spares and marine equipment to clients worldwide.  Having penetrated into maritime industry in depth and breadth for so many years, it is a natural consequence that we could establish strategic alliance with licensees and sub-vendors of prominent European and Japanese equipment makers. This gives us cutting edge advantage to offer competitively priced parts with shorter delivery period to our clients whilst not compromising on quality.
