Bundu Khan restaurant and bakery expands with Cummins standby power
Bundu Khan is an old venture in the Pakistani food industry that has become a household brand for barbeque cuisine. As a sole proprietor with its first bakery opening on Mall Road in Lahore in 1991, today Bundu Khan operates bakeries and restaurants in Lahore, Multan and now in Murree.
Cummins was selected as the backup power provider for Bundu Khan several years ago for the main office building. The customer recently added Cummins generators to the production plant and at each of the 11 branch locations. Authorized Cummins distributor Orient Energy Systems installed each of the units, comprising one Cummins C140D5, two C66D5 and 11 C55D5 generator sets. The power systems at the bakeries provide 55 kVA of power to back up the main utility. Tailor-made enclosures provide sound levels of 85 dBA at 1 meter.
OES was instrumental in providing exceptional service, often with short delivery lead times. While the customer plans to open a certain number of branches annually, unexpected delays in the planning phases can mean tight delivery deadlines to be ready for shop openings, which are also coordinated with annual festivals, explained OES Sales Manager Muzaffar Iqbal. To meet delivery lead times, OES is equipped with a stocking plan to meet the customer’s unexpected needs as well.
“The customer has many options for backup power generation available in the local market, but due to OES’ and Cummins’ brand reputation for customer service, he is inclined toward Cummins,” Iqbal said. “OES always strives for the best possible services and backup support.”
