Association with Gmmco
IMT appointed Gmmco, a CK Birla Group company as their dealer for pan India territory in 2017. Gmmco has begun the sales of all models of IMT piling rigs as well as rendering the after sales support through their extensive branch network. IMT International SpA was founded in 1974 by Giulio Accorroni. Since then, the company has invested extensively in technology and design to develop products for different applications and to bring innovative technology to the market like sound-proof machines. IMT has a global foot print with presence in over 30 countries across the world. In 1993, IMT started assembling drill rigs on Caterpillar excavator bases. This proved to be a successful design and IMT was able to combine multiple model rigs on CAT bases. IMT holds the patent for the innovative drilling system related to highly seismic grounds, the 'multi rotary driven soil mixing pile'. The new AF series machines developed by IMT, mounted on CAT bases with tier 4 final engines are working in numerous sites across the world.
In 2017, IMT launched their brand new range of A-series rigs with new generation engines, completely designed and developed by them. Jayaram stated, 'The association with IMT is one more leap towards Gmmco's objective of being a 'one-stop-shop' for our customers in the infrastructure sector. This addition of 'piling rig equipment' business will bring synergy to Gmmco's current line of construction and mining equipment business and customers will also get benefitted by best-in-class range of products available with Gmmco and its product support network.'
