Mr Vimal Kaushik
Managing Director, Punj Lloyd, India
38 years with Punj Lloyd
I joined Punj Lloyd as a Management Trainee and there has never been time to look back. Every day there was something more challenging, something more exciting. I have worked in almost all geographies, setting up operations and working in terrain unimaginable! But that is what gave me a sense of achievement. I am proud to be the Managing Director of such a dynamic Group, which I have built with my own hands. Today, the tendency is to switch jobs at the click of a button. For a company to value you, it needs your commitment and perseverance.
Senior Engineer, Punj Lloyd, India
2 and half years with Punj Lloyd
The kind of work our Group does is unique in its own way. From Refineries to Petrochemicals and from Pipelines to Offshore, Punj Lloyd is an ideal EPC Group with a varied portfolio. I joined as Engineer Trainee (Planning) and have worked so far on various Live Projects including Cross-Country Pipelines, Refinery Expansions and Offshore Work. My early exposure to Primavera, the Project Management software, has made me an invaluable asset to my department. I also conducted trainings for new trainees. All my professional learning comes from direct on-job exposure.

Punj Lloyd gives me an understanding of world-class management structure, thinking and analytical tools. I make the most of the training I receive by my seniors to face the real life challenges. I enjoy the learning and values Punj Lloyd has taught me through various opportunities and exposure to technology and assignments. It has helped me immensely to relate to the theoretical knowledge I had gained so far.

Trainee Engineer (Mechanical) exigent, Simon Carves UK
Mechanical Engineering BEng (Hons) - Manchester University
2 years with Simon Carves
I graduated in Mechanical Engineering which is arguably the most diverse of engineering disciplines, offering a full spectrum of opportunities. However, I knew early on that I wanted to be part of a ‘bigger picture’ and that the Process Contracting Industry had the most to offer me. It is here that you get to see a plant in the feed stage right through to its construction and commission. Simon Carves’ name is synonymous with Process Contracting and in doing more research on the Group, as a whole, I quickly realised it was a dynamic organization, poised for further growth. Hence providing me the opportunity to expand on my professional skills and abilities, broaden my horizons and work abroad.
Engineers really benefit from on-site experience; this is often hard to come by, as the design office is always a challenging and demanding setting. Simon Carves’ management encourages site experience. I have undertaken a long-term site assignment on an LDPE project and I am due to undertake a second site assignment on a Bio-Ethanol project.
One of the most valuable experiences so far, has been the breadth of people I’ve enjoyed working alongside. This includes subcontractors in the field to corporate management from all corners of the world.
I have now worked within the group for two years and while part of the team, I continue to look forward to both an interesting future. I would recommend the industry to any ambitious Engineer!
