The story begins in 1994 when ‘Information Technology’ meant CAD, email, Msoffice, Novel network and very little else. Fresh-from-college mechanical engineers Varghese Daniel and Aju Peter had the idea to improve the manufacturing design process with a new kind of Information Technology – that did not yet exist – and to build which they started the company that later became Wrench Solutions.
Leveraging the principle ‘The whole is greater than the sum of parts’, they built a product that used best practices to standardize processes across every department, and automation to improve efficiency across every process, task, and activity. After convincing Widia & Mico-Bosch the two German Indian subsidiaries to give this new idea a try, companies like L&T, BHEL, BEL, Flowserve, Xomox followed suit.
In 2005, Wrench recognised a similar situation in the Energy industry where reliance on manually-driven processes was causing projects to fall prey to delay and cost overrun. Wrench applied their learnings in manufacturing to build a product for the Engineering & construction sector.
In the next few years Wrench expanded to the Middle East and Asia and acquired customers like CH2M Habtoor Leighton, Atkins, Simon Carves, Tata Group, ENOC, and TOYO, to name a few.
In 2015, Wrench released SmartProject, an end-to-end, integrated, cloud-based system that could be rolled out on the full project cycle of engineering, procurement, and construction. SmartProject is in use on 9000+ Projects across 25 countries.
