Wide range of products manufactured for the global market at the Wirtgen, Vgele, Hamm, Kleemann and Benninghoven will be showcased.
Wirtgen Group will be presenting premium solutions for the complete road construction value chain with about 20 exhibits at Stand O.E07. The exhibition centres on innovative machines and technologies for road construction, road rehabilitation, the mining and processing of commodities and mineral raw materials as well as for building material recycling.
German technology for Indian market
Wirtgen Group has maintained a strong presence in India for over 20 years through its local sales and service companies. At its local production facility with adjacent workshop right outside Pune, the Group also manufactures local machine models. They round out the wide range of products manufactured for the global market at the Wirtgen, Vgele, Hamm, Kleemann and Benninghoven brand headquarters in Germany.
Wirtgen India, the local sales and service company, also operates a modern Training Centre for the targeted transfer of know-how about the market-leading Wirtgen Group technologies. Not only does Wirtgen India's own specialist staff receive ongoing training, but customers also benefit directly from what they learn at the centre in their daily job-site operations.
High-performance machines and a dense service network
India remains one of the world's largest and most important growth markets. A variety of infrastructure projects are currently being implemented under current infrastructure policy, which is geared towards maintaining and expanding the infrastructure nationwide. Together with efficient construction methods, innovative, high-performance machine technologies can help to safeguard the functionality of the road infrastructure in the long term. "To optimally support our customers in meeting the challenges they face, we have invested heavily in the Pune site in recent years to significantly expand production and usable space. We have also steadily expanded our product range for the Indian market to include locally manufactured machine models," explains Ramesh Palagiri, Managing Director and CEO, Wirtgen India. For example, Vgele pavers and Kleemann screens have also been manufactured in Pune for several years, alongside the Hamm 311 compactors and HD 99 rollers.
The Wirtgen Group subsidiary in India has also expanded its sales and service network to more than 20 bases. And not without reason, since customers value more than just the Group's premium machines: "With our reliable service and on-site support, customers are ideally positioned to take on any project, work profitably and deliver high quality," says Palagiri.
Inviting visitors to drop by the Wirtgen Group exhibition area, Palagiri says, "Our customers, both current and future, can look forward to a tailored package of solutions for the entire road construction cycle. Wirtgen Group applications experts from India and the Wirtgen, Vgele, Hamm and Kleemann brand headquarters in Germany are always available to answer any questions customers may have."
