SDLG to Focus on Brand Building

SDLG will emphasize towards enhanced brand building to increase its market presence in India. This was said by Mr. B. Sridhar, Head- SDLG Business India. SDLG launched its new wheel loaders and motor graders during Excon 2013.

Mentioning about the business strategy of the company to increase its market share in India, Mr. Sridhar said, "Our foremost challenge in increasing our share in competitive market will be to stabilize and develop our brand. We will look to strengthen our after sales support, parts support and operators training both during warranty and post warranty period. The strategies are likely to increase the acceptance of our products."

SDLG Motorgrader
Volvo has 13 dealers while there are 3 dedicated dealers for distributing SDLG products. Parts supports to the products are provided through Volvo CE's mother warehouse in Bangalore. SDLG presently has 500 units working in India.

He said, "The products are not intended for the premium but for the value segment, whose emphasis is towards getting a reliable product and providing higher uptime hence product support is quite vital for the company."

Mr. Sridhar said, "The reason for Volvo to acquire SDLG brand was to serve the growing mass market. To make the wheel loaders and motor graders well attuned to the Indian requirements, improvisation has been carried out in transmissions, axles to make the equipment deliver high on performance and for better operator's comfort."

The new LG979, 23.5 tons wheel loader which was launched during Excon 2013, is powered by SDLG, tier-3 electronic engines with rated power of 226kw.
