The founder, S.L. Advani was a designer of
steam boilers at a company in India between 1963 - 1972. At that
time, watertube boilers were mostly imported into India from
manufacturers based in U.S.A. and U.K. Determined to manufacture
India's first Steam Boiler, S.L. Advani took up the challenge. A
few years later he successfully designed and manufactured a
steam boiler from scratch all on his own from knowledge gained
by reading books. This instilled great confidence in him.
"I vividly remember the day steam
came out of that boiler" he reminisces.
Later, while expanding tubes in boilers, he
realized that Tube Expanders were not easily available in India.
They had to be imported, invariably took a long time to procure,
and when they finally arrived, sometimes they were the wrong
Hence, POWERMASTER was born in 1972 with Tube
Expanders as the only product.
By the year 1980, Powermaster had expanded
into Tube Cleaning for boilers and pans in Sugar Mills. With
over four hundred sugar mills in India, and since most tools for
Tube Cleaning were imported from the U.K., the Founder sensed
"Today, fortunately we export our tools
to some of the manufacturers who exported similar tools to India
fifteen years ago." he says.
We will continue to improve on existing
products and introduce new tools to make your work faster,
cheaper and safer.
In 1985, Powermaster branched into the production
of Torque Tools for precision tightening of fasteners. Today, many of
the Powermaster line of products - Torque Wrenches, Spring Balancers
and Impact Sockets - are being used regularly by a large number of
Automobile plants around the world as well as in general industry.
Powermaster continues to expand the product line to
cover the entire gamut of Tube Installation, Removal and Cleaning
tools. Today, Powermaster produces the most efficient line of
Hydraulic Tube Pullers, Tube Expanding Systems and Tube Facing Systems
available in the world.
