Revealing on its participation plans he states, “Our focus at bC India shall be on our Self-loading Articulated site dumper model DX 25 SL, which we hope shall revolutionize the working methods in the building industry in the days to come. The machine comes standard with four wheel drive, automotive hydrostatic transmission, articulated chassis, loading bucket and having a payload capacity of 2.5 tons. In batching plants, we will display the compact series batching plants fitted with planetary mixers and the radial arm “self-loading” batching plants.

Speaking on the company’s progression he says, “Our performance till Q-III of the current fiscal has been very promising, since we have registered around 30% growth in revenues year-on-year over the last couple of years. This has been primarily possible due to our diversified presence across infrastructure sectors, increased capacities and market network expansion.”
