About KCP Ltd

KCP is a diversified $50 million  business group with interests in heavy engineering, sugar, cement, hydel power, information technology and biotechnology. KCP's cement division has a state-of-the-art cement manufacturing plant at Macherla in Andhra Pradesh. It was India’s 1st dry process kiln installed in 1958 by HUMBOLDT, Germany even while it was still a prototype in Europe. Strong emphasis on new technology characterizes all operations at KCP’s Macherla plant.

In 1962 KCP installed a second wet process kiln in collaboration with FIVES LILLIE CAIL, France. KCP’s 100% modernized cement plant with a World Bank funded outlay of Rs 367 million incorporates the latest technology such as the energy-efficient dry process, with a two support kiln and a five stage pre-heater with flash calciner. KCP also incorporates a sophisticated centralized process control system with hardware and software from SIEMENS, Germany.

KCP has successfully designed and built a mobile launch pedestal (MLP) for Indian Space Research Organization's (ISRO) Satish Dhavan Space Centre at Sreeharikotta. It is on such platforms that the launch vehicles will carry the remote sensing satellites and communication satellites. The launch vehicle together with the MLP would weigh around 900 tonne and is a result of the joint initiative by the scientists of the ISRO and KCP Engineers.

The heavy engineering division of The KCP Limited, established in 1955,  is a sprawling, hi-tech complex that can roll out the entire range of heavy mechanical equipment for the core sector industries.
