With double-digit growth in its wheel loader sales in India, last year was yet another record-breaking year for SDLG, a company release said. Nine years into its operations in India, SDLG’s sales volumes reached seven times from its first year of sales. According to the company, such impressive growth is a result of the increasing popularity of the brand’s machines which offer excellent reliability and efficiency.
Currently, the company sells three wheel loader models in India, with the LG958L in the 5-ton class the most popular unit and a perfect option for dockside applications, as well as mining and general loading duties.
From SDLG’s range of motor graders, the 16-ton G9190 is a popular choice for Indian road building projects. Over the past several years, these machines have contributed to improved profitability for the owners, due to their low maintenance costs and fast return on investment, the company says.
As India’s construction industry continues to target the government’s ambitious goal of building 30 km of new road a day, the demand for quality road building equipment is expected to rise.
“SDLG machines have proven to be reliable and cost-effective on road projects across India,” said Sanu George, Business Head, SDLG India. “The trust our road building customers have in us will most likely to transfer to other sectors. In future, we expect to see our machines used in quarries or other applications,” he added.
