About Us

HGS (India) Limited, (HGSI) (erstwhile Geosource India Limited) a part of the Sowar group, was established in 1986 in technical and financial collaboration with Geosource Inc USA, owner of  Sensor Nederland b.v. to manufacture geophone strings, seismic cables & connectors. When Geosource Inc was bought out by HGS Inc USA, Geosource India Limited changed its name to HGS (India) Ltd. Thereafter HGS Inc USA was bought and sold by a number of companies but HGSI has remained with that name. Between 2010 and 2013, Sensor Nederland/ION progressively shut its manufacturing operations in Jebel Ali (UAE), Beijing (China) and Voorschoten (the Netherlands) and shifted operations to HGSI in India. A new dedicated factory was built to house these activities. Since 2011, HGSI has been manufacturing and supplying geophones and geophone strings to various clients of Sensor/ION all over the world and by the end of 2013 the manufacturing of the complete range of geophones was transferred over to HGSI.


From January 2015, HGSI discontinued its manufacturing arrangement with Sensor/ION and launched its own range of HG-geophones whilst maintaining the same standards that customers are accustomed to receive as in the past. In order to re-introduce and augment the research and development activity which was hitherto in Sensor Nederland’s domain, HGSI formed a wholly owned subsidiary, HGS Products b.v. based in The Hague, the Netherlands in January 2015. HGS Products also houses the European Marketing and Sales team.


Over the years, HGSI has through indigenisation and total quality management, been able to provide quality products at affordable prices to a majority of seismic contractors and oil companies all over the world.


HGSI is the holder of the CNBC TV 18 Emerging India Award for engineering in 2009 and BOI India SME 100 Award 2012 apart from being recognized as a STAR EXPORT HOUSE by the Ministry of Commerce & Industry in 2010. HGSI's Mr. Anil Dass (Managing Director) has also been awarded the MSME India National Award-2013 for "Outstanding Entrepreneurship" Small Enterprises (Manufacturing).
