In 2017, IMT had appointed GMMCO Ltd. a CK Birla Group company, as their pan India dealer. GMMCO has begun sales of all models of IMT piling rigs as well as rendering after-sales support through its extensive branch network.

IMT International S.p.A was founded in 1974 by Giulio Accorroni. The company has invested extensively in technology and design to develop products for different applications and to bring innovative technologies like sound-proof machines. IMT has a presence in over 30 countries. The IMT brand is synonymous with quality and reliability and pursuit of meeting market demands and customer satisfaction.

In 1993, IMT started assembling drill rigs on Caterpillar excavator bases. This proved to be a very successful design and IMT was able to combine multiple model rigs on CAT bases. IMT holds the patent for the innovative drilling system related to highly seismic grounds, the Multi Rotary Driven Soil Mixing Pile. The new AF series machines developed by IMT, mounted on CAT bases with tier 4 final engines are working in numerous sites across the world.

In 2017, IMT launched its brand new range of A-series rigs with new generation engines, completely desinged and developed in-house.

H. Jayaram stated that this addition of Piling Rig equipment business will bring greater synergy to GMMCO's current line of construction and mining equipment business and customers will benefit by best-in-class range of products available with GMMCO and its product support network.

The new series of IMT drill rigs are suitable for different and arduous applications on strata from soft soil to hard rock. Their torque and high-performing winch enable them to reach great depths, with great diameters. Their heavy-duty undercarriage guarantees optimal stability in various conditions and configurations.
