ESCC of Zeppelin Systems India Pvt Ltd. was promoted by highly experienced technocrats having wide experience with industry majors in India and abroad in the year 1989 (as Alpha Project Services Pvt Ltd). Since then, the Company has consistently provided high quality engineering design services to its clients in the chemical, petrochemical, fertilizers, oil & gas, pharmaceuticals and other process industries in the areas of process design and basic engineering, detail engineering, HSE management and special projects.

In January-2009, Zeppelin Silos & Systems GmbH ( Friedrichshafen ) acquired Alpha through its Indian subsidiary Zeppelin Systems India Pvt. Ltd. “ With this acquisition”, says Kerstin Kleemann (Managing Director of Zeppelin Systems India Pvt. Ltd), “Zeppelin continues its successful strategy of thinking global and acting local”. As result of this acquisition, Zeppelin is now in a position to offer its valued clients additional product & services in Zeppelin's traditional fields of expertise i.e. silos, solids handling systems and engineered solutions for logistic operations.

Following the aquisition, Alpha Project Services Pvt Ltd become a 100% owned subsidary of Zeppelin Systems India Pvt Ltd. The next logical step was to merge the two companies for which necessary approvals were sought from regularatory authorities which were received by end of December 2010. Following receipt of these approvals, Alpha Project Services Pvt Ltd was amalgamated with its holding Company, Zeppelin Systems India Pvt Ltd, and the engineering consultancy business was named as Engineering and Services Competence Center (ESCC) of the Company.
