The machine was rolled out from Sandvik’s newly set-up state-of-the-art manufacturing facility at Hinjewadi, Pune. The sprawling plant, spread over 1.5 lakh sq. ft., boasts of an ultra-modern infrastructure and top-notch quality control procedures to ensure that every product rolling out of the shop floor is at par with the company’s global standards.
Setting up of this plant means additional benefits for Sandvik customers throughout the course of ownership, with quicker deliveries making acquisitions easier for them. What’s more, all the machines produced here will also be exported to several countries, which in turn will bring additional revenue to the state of Maharashtra.
In keeping with the Honourable Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi’s vision of ‘make in India’, this marks the beginning of a brand-new chapter in the Indian mining and rock technology industry. With ‘made in India’ tunnelling jumbos, Sandvik is now closer to its customers than ever before. The Sandvik brand is now easier to own and faster to deploy.
