As in the case of Tasty Bite one year back ,some companies are
silent performers overlooked by investors and analysts community.
When such a company identified by some strong hands it will move
like rocket and multiplied in few trading sessions. Veljan Denison
seems to be such a company ,unknown to most of the investors.
Veljan is formerly known as Denison Hydraulics . This Company
is located at Hyderabad and promoted by Sri. V C Janardan Rao.
Mr Rao,is a qualified and experienced Engineer with
specialization in the area of Fluid Power.Weljan has promoted
with technical and financial assistance of Abex Corporation,
USA .In 1987 parent company ie, Abex corporation transferred
their interest in the Hydraulic Division to M/s. AB Hagglund & Soner
of Sweden and since then the Hydraulic Division came to be know
as Hagglunds Denison worldwide .This Swedish company is still
holding 13% shares in Veljan through Incentive Fastighet A B.
Indian promoter is holding 73.10% stake .This makes the total
promoter holding is 86.1% in this tiny capital company with total
capital of just 1.8 crore.This low equity base may be a reason
for the overlooking of investors towards this wonderful company.
Later the name of Indian company changed to Veljan Denison to
reflect the interest of Indian promoter too .
Denison is a well known name in hydraulic Industry. Its products span across Hydraulic Valves,Cylinders,Vane pumps and Pneumatic equipments.In reality this small company is the only one listed player offering a product list of more than 200 products related with hydraulic and pneumatic sectors.We may have another listed players like Kirloskar pneumatic,Atlas Copco,Yuken India,Dynamatic technologies ..etc making these type of products .But none of this single company offering this much products under single fold.Company is producing these products from its three manufacturing units in an around Hyderabad.Veljan has its own in-house R & D for product development , enhancement and expansion of product range.Growth of company’s products are closely related with the growth in industrialization.
