Q. As a concreting equipment manufacturer; describe your latest set up and how you think that the investment will boost up the company’s revenue?

Schwing Stetter India has a massive expansion plan and will be investing about 350 crores in two phases towards installing a technology-enabled and environmentally-sustainable manufacturing facility. The new site aims to focus on new product launches and support the progression of engineered products from the prototype stage to serial production.

The new manufacturing facility will be set up in Sipcot Industrial Area, Cheyyar, Thiruvannamalai District, Tamil Nadu which is 60 kms away from their existing facilities. The new unit, spreading over 53 acres, is a step towards strengthening Schwing Stetter’s commitment to the Indian market and focus on to meet the emerging infrastructure boom in India and export potential in Asia and African markets.

 

Q. How do you define the trend of construction equipment industry in India; what are the areas where you would like to address as that needs to grab the certain attentionfrom the Government point of view?

A steady surge in national highway construction projects has benefited the construction equipment market. In 2017-18, the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) awarded 7,40 km of road projects, valued at Rs 1.2 trillion, an all-time high. In fiscal 2018, 28 km of roads were constructed every day, more than double of what it was done in 2014. India’s construction equipment industry is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 10% till 2021-22. This will spur major growth for the Construction Equipment sector given the demand to develop rural infrastructure. We have also aligned our products to suit key government projects Bharatmala, Sagarmala, DFCC, Clean India, Skill India, etc.

We hope the CEMM act comes into action with the support of the Government of India.
