SIOM, the center of learning, has the good fortune to be located at Nashik, an industrial hub as well as a center of religion, one of the four cities to host the Kumbh Mela. A city with a pleasant climate all-year round, surrounded as it is by the picturesque Western Ghats, Maharashtra’s pride and home to some of the most stunning landscapes in the country. Nashik is also a city with a tremendous mythological, social, historical and cultural importance.
What really makes Nashik such an attractive location, however, is the rapid industrial growth of the city that has brought in its wake a never-before development. Home to an important thermal power plant, the India Security Press and corporate like Mahindra and Mahindra, MICO (Bosch), VIP, Crompton Greaves, Glaxo and L&T. Nashik is truly an important fixture in the industrial map of the country today.
