35 years Of Quality & Trust

One of the biggest producers of PVC pipes and fittings in South India now, HYCOUNT had its origins more than three decades ago, at Kollam in Kerala. Foraying into the manufacture of PVC Pipes, and using it instead of GI pipes for water supply, Prof.MKA Hameed, a visionary industrialist, redrafted the quality needs in the segment. Prof. Hameed channelized all the knowledge and expertise gained as the first Vice-Chairman of Kerala Planning Board, the Principal of TKM Engineering Collage and a Member of Legislative Assembly, for building a brand that gained the unflinching trust of people.

Today HYCOUNT is a prominent player in the production and distribution of Water storage Tanks, Rainwater Harvesters, PVC Pipes & Fittings, Suction and Delivery Hoses and Waste Water drainage systems. Uncompromising Quality and State-of-the-art technology differentiate HYCOUNT from other similar manufacturers, and makes it people’s favourite in anything to do with water storage and supply.

The Annual production capacity of HYCOUNT stands at 26000 Metric Tonnes of PVC Pipes, 4000 Metric Tonnes of Hoses,2700 Metric Tonnes of PVC Fittings and 1000 Lakh litres for Water Storage Tanks.

PROF. M.K.A. Hameed

“Hope is both the earliest and the most indispensable virtue inherent in the state of being alive.

If life is to be sustained hope must remain, even where confidence is wounded, trust impaired.” This was perhaps, a dictum the professor in question fervently practiced. Born in the year 1929, the third son of a celebrated Travancore trader was unarguably a man larger than life. Losing his father at an early age and at the wake of a slowdown in the family trading, he had to striveto complete his formal education.
He worked hard to secure a seat at the Madras University at a time when very few from Kerala made it for a professional degree course. It is from here that he graduated as a chemical engineer. Kerala, an agricultural state by and large was at this time at the threshold of an industrial revolution. FACT was launched at Udhyogamandal, Kochi. The professor took his first assignment here. During his tenure here he received a marriage proposal. Little did he know how much his life was to change.

Legendary cashew king, Thangal Kunju Musliar (TKM) sought the young Engineer’s consent for his daughter. It was after this that he was given another offer - to build TKM’s Engineering College. Taking to it like fish to water, he organised a team to build what is perhaps Kerala’s greatest monument to technical education. He was made the vice principal. After his stint as vice principal, the professor went abroad to do his masters - University of Mississippi. He returned to take over as the principal of TKM engineering college. Quick to discern between the policies of the management and the students, he soon won the adulation of both. Today, the institution acknowledges his principles with a national level technical symposium- MEXSYM. Having made a profound and lasting impact on his students and co staff, Professor bid adieu to the field of education and relocated to his home town. With elections around the corner, the town was rife with political tension. He was made to contest as an independent candidate backed by the Marxist party and thus carved a place in the political history of Kerala. Along with the then Chief Minister EMS Namboodiripad they set up Kerala’s very first planning board for which the professor served as the vice chairman. The collapse of the Marxist Government in the late seventies and his exit from the political arena, brought about the next turning point in his life, his truest calling perhaps -entrepreneurship. To date no one really knows why he made this career switch, although various reasons are cited. He chose to manufacture PVC pipes. A product, the markets of Kerala barely knew. He broke through a traditional market which catered only GI pipes. The man noted for his humbleness and patience, thus set new standards in the horizons of business acumen.

Mr. M.A Habeeb

Forged in the fires of an out-of-the-ordinary childhood, a rebel child, son of a well reputed professor and the principal of TKM engineering college, grandson of the Musliar, Habeeb grew up in the backyards of the cashew industries of Quilon. Stubbornly decisive from a tender age, the rebel child discovered in awe the creative ability of an entrepreneur in his grandfather, the King of Cashew, Thangal Kunju Musliar. His rebel nature and questioning of everything and anything of monotony soon found him struggling to cope with the mundane routines of schooling. By virtue of his father’s compassionate understanding and deep wisdom having discerned the taste of innumerable
students, he was led into the choppy waters of entrepreneurship amidst the backwaters of Quilon. Thus began his striking career. Owner of a fishing boat, proudly called “Sagar”, young Habeeb was introduced to the basics of practical business management amongst the sturdy, recalcitrant forces that commanded the seashores of Quilon. From here, he was again lured into the intricacies of the then virgin shores of the PVC manufacturing business. He began work as a Cashier and it was not long before his spirit seeped into marketing alleys of the nascent PVC pipe business. His earnest desire to connect and understand the ways of the dealers urged him to travel deep into the market and sustain personal relationships with many a dealer. His disarming nature coupled with a striking sense of humour, won him many a heart in most social circles. More of right brained thinker, Habeeb deeply relied on his “Team” also known as his five S’s to manifest business plans to reality.

After the demise of his father, our Founder Prof. MKA Hameed, Habeeb’s insight into the business took a radical transformation. Together with his team, his agenda was pure growth. Taking his sons under his wings, Habeeb graduated into the realm of Chairmanship. The phase will forever be remembered for his immense calm and constant inspiration to all that crossed paths with him. The gentle giant mentored, sought plan after plan and unceasingly executed through his beloved team of staff. Year after year, many a challenge, held strong in his gentle calm, memories of his indomitable charisma lingers on. His mighty heart gave out on a fine August morning. Nobody saw it coming, for this fiery spirit of entrepreneurship cackled with creative enthusiasm right until the end. Time goes on, callous of how abruptly the Torch has been passed on, and yet, the torch must burn. Ever so brighter, fuelled by the spirits of the visionaries who have left for the realms beyond our understanding.
