Know the way, go the way, show the way

Mr. Kishore Laxmidas Thakkar

Chief promoter and founder

As a librarian, accountant, manager and ultimately an entrepreneur, Mr. Kishore Laxmidas Thakkar indoctrinates the philosophy that while success lies in many trades, it comes in a single shade- perseverance. His rustic background enabled him to see business and life in the same light which brought fame to the Japanese Kanban- respect for one and all. Despite the lack of a formal engineering education, his aptitude for science and technology was accomplished enough to be acknowledged with the President of India award by The Honorable George Fernandes, erstwhile Industry Minister of India, back in 1977 for development of steel especially ST52.3 din 17100 grade for chassis long members. The development was in association with Rourkela Steel plant (SAIL). Fondly called in the industry as the Father of Roll Forming Technology and chassis frame manufacturing, Mr. Kishore Laxmidas Thakkar has shot forward his legacy for posterity to imbibe, which enkindles the flame of excellence within the spirit that resides only in a family-led business. As Kahlil Gibran so eloquently describes, ‘You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth.’ The same sentiment resonates within all at KLT as we bask in the glory of his endeavor.

Mr. Bhavin Kishore Thakkar

Chief promoter and founder

Mr. Bhavin Thakkar epitomizes the idea of ‘The Great Indian Story’. His story of transformation from a mechanical engineer to the authority who spearheaded the outsourced chassis frames revolution in India traces the same illustrious path as that of the Indian automotive industry. It is no wonder then, that he is rightfully called the CHASSIS MAN of India. A visionary by profession, Mr. Bhavin Thakkar introduced tubular chassis frames back in 1993, a feat that was unheard of before. With several industry firsts in the country such as manual bending of tubular chassis side members, its autophoretic process, robotic welding of chassis frames, manufacturing by hydro forming process, laser punching, etc, Mr. Thakkar has graced the company with innumerable engineering accolades which has now become second nature for the company. Mr Bhavin Thakkar’s tenacity and knack of achieving novel engineering practices is unparalleled in Indian automotive history and something every member of KLT group is proud of.
