KEC International, a global infrastructure EPC major with a footprint in 105+ countries, has successfully acquired Spur Infrastructure Private Limited. Spur Infra, incorporated in 2016, is an Indian EPC company engaged in setting up cross-country oil and gas pipelines and city gas distribution networks. In the last three years, Spur Infra has clocked an annual revenue in excess of 100 crore, and established a profitable track record with technical expertise and experienced manpower.
This acquisition combines KEC’s proven project management capabilities and extensive experience in executing cross-country linear projects with Spur Infra’s technical knowhow, experienced manpower and relevant pre-qualifications. It will enable KEC to capture the lucrative growth opportunities in the oil and gas cross-country pipelines EPC sector in India, and in international markets.
Vimal Kejriwal, MD & CEO, KEC International, commented, “We launched the oil and gas pipelines EPC business in line with the government’s thrust in the sector and our strategy to diversify the business portfolio into adjacencies. This acquisition will enable us to accelerate growth in this sector, and establish this business as one of our key growth drivers, going forward.”

Over the years, we realised that the real change maker in the education system is the teacher, prompting us to expand our programme towards a highly specialised teacher development programme. BMC has given us the opportunity to train 7,000 plus primary and upper primary teachers in 2019.
The education sector has faced multiple challenges during this pandemic, and a large number of students are still struggling with access to digital education. In spite of these challenges, we continued to train 5,000 teachers during this past year, virtually. We aim to give the best possible support to the teachers and our students through the pandemic, and beyond.”
