Apex also has a wide range of machining capabilities to deliver complex jobs with machining centers from SHW & Doosan along with various CNC and conventional radial drilling, boring and milling machines.According to Atul, unprecedented infrastructure-related investment to enable economic development in India will inevitably trigger growth. The expanding presence and engagement of global OEMs in India is another enabler that is driving industry evolution and growth. Most global OEMs are expected to strengthen their presence in India, attracted by one of the world's fastest growing construction equipment markets and their need to mitigate cyclicality in developed markets. Also, increasing export opportunities is another growth enabler.
