Er. Suresh Chandra Modi – Sad demise of an eminent alumnus

It was with deep regret that we learned about the sad demise of one of the eminent alumni of MBM Engineering College, Er. Suresh Chandra Modi.

Born in Jodhpur, Er. Suresh Modi completed his graduation in Mechanical Engg. from MBM Engineering College of the University of Jodhpur in 1971. Er. Modi, joined his family business company M/s Metallizing Equipment Co. Pvt. Ltd. in 1972 with his elder brother Shri Madho Dasji Modi and developed different types of thermal spraying equipment, Abrasive Blast Cleaning machines, and processes in India. He traveled widely in India and abroad and attended almost all International Thermal Spraying Conferences & Exhibitions. He has several patents to his credit. He was awarded the prize for the Development of Arc Spray Equipment by the Machine Tool Association of India.

Er. Modi contributed over 110 technical papers to various academic and industrial conferences. He is a known authority in thermal spraying and surface engineering technology. His company is at the apex in manufacturing thermal spraying and shot blasting equipment in India and also supplied to ISRO, DRDO, Bhabha Atomic, Shipyards, Railways, Airindia, BHEL, Hindustan Aeronautics, etc apart from big private industries. Presently exporting to 52 countries. The company is having AS 9100 D, CE, NABL, and ISO certificates and delivering products and services to many fields like Aerospace, defense, Automobile, general industries, etc.

Passing away of Er. Modi has created a void in the Industrial arena of Jodhpur which will be difficult to fill up in near future. He was a man of great intellect, vision, and courage who contributed immensely to the cause of the MBM Alumni association as well as to the student welfare. He dedicated himself to building bridges to a better future and in this way, he touched the lives of all of us in a positive manner. A large number of alumni expressed shock and grief at the sad demise of Er. Modi. ” It is a great loss to the MBM fraternity, city of Jodhpur, and extremely personal loss. He was not only a leading industrialist but a thorough gentleman also. He was a stalwart, who made crucial contributions to business, and technology.” Said Prof. S.S. Tak, President of MBM Alumni association in his condolence message.

We deeply mourn the sad demise of Er. Modi and pay our heartfelt condolences. May the almighty bless the departed soul in peace.

  3. सादर नमन।
    I was in contact with him since students time. What a very charming personality!!
    I did some innovative projects for his Metallizing company. I found that he was having extra ordinary quality of taking up challenging and innovative projects. Despite my expression of no knowledge of designing these projects, which I executed for his company, he expressed faith in my capabilities and asked me to proceed. This was an exceptional quality in him which a techanical leader must have. And, of course, those projects were successful.

    Two or three years back, he gave me offer of development of a computer program for some design and also offered a reasonably attractive remuneration. However, due to some reasons, I didn’t accept the offer.

    I shall always remember this person of exceptional qualities.
