Dhaka-based Rana Builders (Pvt.) Ltd. specialises in construction of roads, bridges and buildings. When purchasing a new asphalt-mixing plant, it wanted a product that would help meet its objective of on-time delivery and high-quality mix. It zeroed down on Apollo ValueTec 80 Classic as it was confident of the brand’s performance and the additional benefits it would provide the user.
“The biggest challenge our business faces today is maintaining quality. What differentiates us from our competitors is the fact that we maintain our commitment of providing quality to our customers, along with timeliness,” says Md. Alam, Managing Director, Rana Builders.
The company’s approach is certainly bringing in orders. Besides which, the Apollo ValueTec 80 Classic Asphalt-Mixing Plant delivered other profit-building benefits too. “We chose the ValueTec Plant also because of the cost efficiencies it brought to our business. The Plant is fuel-efficient and requires less shipping time, so it was up and running sooner,” informs Alam.
The plant has a capacity of 80 tonnes per hour, but Rana Builders required only 70 tonnes per hour or 840 tonnes per day, so the plant’s capacity ensured that the mix was available when the customer needed it. Alam was very pleased with the quality of the mix too.
Summing up, he says, “ValueTec is a reliable plant as it helped us meet deadlines and maximise our operating efficiencies, plus its fuel consumption is much less as compared to other plants. The as 1 Control System is another key benefit. Operation is very easy, and the system is safe, including the burner operation.”
Alam noted that the plant required less maintenance and was very pleased with the support his business received from Apollo. Would Alam recommend the plant? “Definitely,” he concludes.
