Chennai: Greaves Cotton Limited, one of India’s leading engineering companies, today inaugurated a new manufacturing Plant for road compaction equipment in Gummidipoondi, Tamil Nadu.  A Training centre was also opened.

The facilities were inaugurated by the Company’s Chairman, Mr. Karan Thapar. The newly opened plant is the fourth manufacturing unit of the Company’s Infrastructure Equipment Group. The new facility will compliment the existing unit and enable the Company to enhance its production capacity from 600 to 1200 compaction machines per annum.

The company also announced the signing of technical collaboration agreement with Bomag GmbH, Germany to manufacture the latest generation 19 ton vibratory soil compactors in India. This model will now meet the growing demand from contractors involved in BOT road projects, airports, dam and irrigation projects and will facilitate faster completion of compaction jobs. Bomag is the world’s No. 1 manufacturer of complete range of compaction equipment and has had a successful and exclusive relationship with Greaves for twenty years.

Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Karan Thapar, Chairman said “Infrastructure development is a vital ingredient for sustainable economic growth in the country. Greaves is playing a key role in this endeavour by offering world-class equipment for both compaction and concreting segments. The opening of the new factory is one more step in that direction”.

Driving the new manufacturing facility is a team of seasoned professionals whose cutting-edge engineering skills and pioneering experience come together to offer world-class equipment for the Indian infrastructure industry.

Greaves is a leading manufacturer and supplier of construction equipment such as Transit Mixers, Vibratory Compactors, Tandem Rollers, Batching Plants, and Concrete Pumps for modern construction projects. These products apart from being superior in technology and performance are cost effective and easy to maintain.

Mr. P. Sachdev, Managing Director & CEO said “We are aggressively focusing on the booming infrastructure sector. High quality products backed by countrywide service network enable Greaves to maintain its leadership position in this business. We are very pleased with our long lasting and enduring relationship with a global leader like Bomag”.
In January 2007, Greaves had set up a new Plant to manufacture transit mixers. Greaves is the only manufacturer to make compaction and concreting equipment in the country.

The opening of the new training centre is yet another step in the Company’s quest for ‘Total Service Quality’. The training centre has full fledged training facilities to train operators and maintenance staff of customers as well as Company’s own engineers. This initiative will help in addressing the requirement of skilled manpower by the customers.

Over the past few years, Greaves has stepped its contribution to the infrastructure sector, by setting up four manufacturing units, for compaction and concreting equipment, which produce world class construction equipment. Greaves also has an extensive dealer network to cater to customer requirements throughout the country 24x7.

Greaves, a Rs. 1200 crore, multi-product, multi-locational company is one of the leading engineering companies in India, with core competencies in diesel / petrol engines and infrastructure equipment. The company sustains its leadership through ten manufacturing units which produce world class products backed by comprehensive marketing and service / parts network throughout the country.
