Since January 2016, the industry has seen a growth of close to 40-45 per cent as compared to previous year. So, it has been a busy year for manufacturers, including JCB. Growth has been evident in almost all segments – in physical infrastructure, backhoe loaders are on the rise; in large infrastructure projects, excavators; while Make in India and Swachh Bharat are contributing to material handling.
At Excon, we launched the concrete equipment range. Our new transit mixers ranging from 7 cu m to 8 cu m are for a higher platform. We have just launched a whole range of concrete and road equipment. We have introduced a new 11-tonne compactor for the Indian market.
One pathbreaking offering: The hallmark of Sany’s growth around the world and particularly in India has been technological improvements made in all our product lines. We invest nearly 7 per cent of our turnover in R&D every year.
