The wide range of asphalt and concrete plants from Lintec & Linnhoff has become popular in India over the past three decades - through direct import as well as local production. With Lintec & Linnhoff announcing the end of the Ardent partnership, the company is now planning a major collaboration in 2021 to push its presence in the country to the next level. The new partner (to be announced soon) is a long-established Indian company with the experience, strength, capability and resources to meet Lintec & Linnhoff’s high standards in manufacturing and distribution.
Daniel Chan, Chairman, Lintec & Linnhoff Holdings, explained why this was a good time for the company to pursue a new path. “At the end of 2019 it was clear to us that we needed to make a significant change in resources to advance our position in India,” he said. “We want to use this opportunity to create a new, state-of-the-art manufacturing site and continue our commitment to the government’s ‘Make in India’ initiative. We will be announcing our new partnership soon and are excited to start a new era of investment in India. Our company is committed to supporting our local clients, not only in managing their existing fleets of plants, but also in meeting their future project needs.”
There are more than 500 of the company’s plants working across India and with construction output in India expected to rebound by 7.7% in 2021, Lintec & Linnhoff is positioning itself to better serve the needs of a growing market. Once the new venture begins, the plan is to manufacture specific models carrying the Linnhoff and Eurotec brands to suit the market needs in India.
“The Linnhoff brand is one of the best-known names in asphalt production in India; it is synonymous with quality and reliability,” said Daniel Chan. “We owe our success to harnessing world-leading German engineering know-how and combining that with Indian manufacturing expertise to create machines that are perfectly suited to Indian conditions. As we move to the next level of our relationship with India, we will continue to build on the qualities that have helped us in establishing a strong presence here, while pushing forward with our production capacity and capability.”
He informed that the new proposed venture will also support sales and customer service activities across India.
