About Us

  • Established in 1983 as a project consultancy firm, Rhino evolved in 1991 into a fully fledged manufacturing firm that produces conventional Green Sand, Pouring and Centrifugal Casting Products. In 1995, Rhino machines collaborated with a French company ‘Fondarc‘ to further strengthen their capabilities while bringing latest technologies to local markets.

  • It has truly come a long way since its inception. Today, we are Gujarat’s leading foundry machine production, equipment marketing, engineering and Consultancy Company. We have evolved as a truly global player providing an exhaustive range of cutting edge foundry equipment and world-class technology from global industry leaders like Fondarc (France) and Found Equip (Italy).

  • We are today a single source supplier of 

  • Green Sand process – High Pressure Moulding Systems with Sand Handling

  • Sand Reclamation – Green Sand and Core Sand

  • Liquid Metal Handling Solutions

  • Turnkey Foundry Projects

  • Rhino is the brainchild of Mr. R. C. Kothari, who is a well qualified engineer with around 50 years of industry experience in foundry production, projects and equipment. His understanding of customer needs coupled with a vast experience in domestic and international technologies provides immense foresight to the company.

  • Built on the strong foundation given by Mr. R. C. Kothari, Rhino is now being led by his son, Mr. Manish Kothari who is a technocrat in the same field.

  • To provide world class technology to suit specific Indian economic and production needs.

  • To consistently develop new technologies to meet the emerging needs of the foundry industry.

  • To meet market challenges and offer custom-built solutions by working closely with customers.

  • The company has its own manufacturing facility at Vallabh Vidhyanagar. Strategically situated between the vibrant industrial cities of Vadodara and Ahmedabad. A very strong service team and excellent vendor support further ensure that Rhino provides a high quality and an exhaustive range of latest foundry and moulding systems.

  • Our Innovative team is equipped for the continuous product improvement and new machine development. Modern machines, latest technology and years of cumulative experience form the base of our infrastructure. We also have a dedicated service team for full repair and maintenance indigenously.

  • Managing the disposal of the Foundry Reclamation Dust & other Dust Collector collection as been a major challenge for the foundry industry. While reclamation overcomes the challenge of 75-85% disposal of sand, the 15-25% dust also needed solution.

  • The disposal of variety of plastic has been a big issue for environment, and the solutions have been leading to replacing with alternate materials. The challenges of managing the transition are many and we cannot rule away the advantages of plastic use. On the other hand construction and building is a major consumer of raw materials such as sand and clay or cement, depleting natural resources.

  • Rhino R&D Team took this as a challenge on their hands, and did a lot of research. They put together the objective of the Waste to Wealth Agenda as below:

      1. Make Foundry Reclamation Process Zero Discharge

      2. Consume other foundry dusts

      3. Identify and use other wastes such as fly ash, plastic

      4. Create Wealth from Waste to enhance the viability of Reclamation Plant

  • Data of usage of plastic as one of the bonding agents in other processes showed us the way, and the experiment under controlled conditions was conducted at Rhino.

  • The R&D Division used this pre-research, and set up the process, pilot production, aligned with experts in the industry to make a bricks/blocks of various forms, arranged the testing to lead to a SPB (Silica Plastic Block) with a strength > 2 times of the conventional Red Clay Brick – opening up a wide area of possibilities.
