Radialisation is the future
BKT is the one of world’s leading tyre manufacturers that is fully dedicated to Off-Highway Tyre manufacturing. Ashok P Chhajer, General Manger-OE Sales, BKT, shares more on the company’s products and solutions.
At Excon: BKT has been participating in Excon for the past 18 years and is the first tyre company to participate at the expo. We are participating at exhibitions like Excon with an objective to show our strength to the OEMs of India and overseas, actual users, government bodies, and all other stakeholders of the industry. We have succeeded in each and every Excon so far and we hope to continue with the same in the coming years.
Market challenges: In the concept of radialisation, we are finding it difficult to convince the customers to switchover from bias to radial. Our entire focus is on radialisation as it is the future. Globally, radialisation is at an advanced stage, while in India the trend is yet to pick up.
Ahead of the competition: BKT is fully dedicated to off-highway tyres with a wide range of SKU’s, which are more than 2,700 varying from 5” rim diameter to 57” rim diameter viz. Bias, Radial, All Steel Radial and Solid Tires meant for vehicles such as dumpers, graders, trailers and forklifts to the technologically advanced machines like high horsepower tractors, combines, harvesters, GPS controlled vehicles, articulated dump trucks, high-speed cranes and port vehicle. Apart from what has been mentioned, we also provide customised solutions, which keep ourselves ahead in the competition.
