Virgo bags international quality award

By Our Special Correspondent

CHENNAI, APRIL 29. The Chennai-based Virgo Industries (Engineers) Pvt. Ltd. has received the `Century International Quality Era Award', an award instituted by Business Initiative Directions (BID), a body formed by engineers across the world to recognise companies for their excellence in quality.

Awards are given under various categories. The award that the company received is in the `Gold category' and recognises its quality "in the realm of customer satisfaction, leadership, strategic planning and benchmarking."

The 40-year-old Virgo Industries, whose turnover is about Rs. 8 crores, undertakes jobs such as putting up pipelines and tanks for oil companies. It also builds signages at the oil companies' retail outlets.

Speaking to The Hindu group about the award, Mathew Kuncheria, Managing Director, Virgo, said that the award came as a pleasant surprise to him.

"I still do not know who nominated us for the award," he said, adding that companies from 83 countries received the BID awards on April 5 at a convention held in Geneva.

"The BID business awards are a tool for global communication helping to spread the latest technology of quality culture and endorsement.

As such, the BID award symbol endorses the corporate image of companies through marketing, advertisement, press and television as well as for trade fairs, point of sale, office space and buildings," says the web site of BID.

Mr. Kuncheria said that he expected the recognition to translate into overseas business. "Already, we have received several business enquiries," he added.
