How do you look at the revival in the mining market after the Covid-impact? Wirtgen Group has been operational in the eastern part of India in the mining sector – even during the lockdown, where our machines were working for coal extraction to ensure uninterrupted power supply, all our depos were open and we were offering breakdown services. As of today, most of our parts depots – all over India, are open and ready to deliver parts. However, service engineers are being deputed based on the local rules and regulations but we are available for supply of parts and service.
