Market outlook: The current market situation is serious. But it will improve owing to the Government’s initiatives in past days. The market was on a slowdown the past year owing to elections for Parliament and then assemblies in certain states. The Rs 100 billion boost given by our finance minister recently to the housing market is expected to kickstart growth in coming days.
Demand drivers for the company’s offerings: In the past two years, the road construction segment was the main driving force for our batching plant business as we are specialists in big plants.
Business opportunities at Excon: We have been an exhibitor at Excon since 2009. We already have a sizable presence in India with a big customer base. Excon gives us an opportunity to connect to new customers and locate dealers in various areas where we want to expand our business.
Key products at the expo: As is our practice, we are introducing some new products each Excon. This year is no different. We have introduced our most popular concrete batching plant, Jumper, with a planetary mixer of 1 cu m capacity. Further, we are also introducing trailer-mounted concrete pumps and a 37-m boom pump.
Meeting buyer requirements: Simem has always been at the forefront of customising concrete batching plants for all types and segments. We have supplied customised plants to various reputed projects worldwide, including the Eurotunnel, the Panama Canal and Petronas Towers.
