Lintec & Linnhoff Holdings (LLH) and the Gainwell Commosales Private Limited (formerly Tractors India Private Limited) have signed a strategic manufacturing and distribution partnership agreement at Excon to cement an even greater presence in the vibrant South Asian market today. Under the partnership, Lintec & Linnhoff will continue to supply its well-known Linnhoff asphalt and Eurotec concrete mixing plants in India, where it has enjoyed 30 years of success. Gainwell Engineering will be the local manufacturing partner of Linnhoff asphalt plants and Eurotec concrete plants, while Gainwell Commosales will be the distribution and aftermarket partner for India, Nepal, and Bhutan. This will be backed by technical support, including after-sales support, retrofit and refurbishment of plants, and supply of spare parts and components.
This collaboration will bring in synergies of Gainwell, a leading player in the field of construction, mining and energy and transport sector and LLH, a global leader in asphalt and concrete batching plants.
Reaffirming LLH’s commitment to the Indian market, where over 500 of its plants have already been sold, the partnership with Gainwell seeks to leverage the success its brands have enjoyed over the past three decades. The new tie-up will deliver stronger brand and product offering to meet diverse project needs ranging from standard plants to more complex or customised solutions designed for the domestic market.
“The Make in India local manufacturing initiative has been pivotal to our re-entry into the market, as we envisage scaling up the business with our blend of high-quality local production based on the very best of European engineering design. Our commitment and investment in India reflect the confidence we have in this globally-important economy,” said Daniel Chan, Chairman, Lintec & Linnhoff Holdings
. “Additionally, in the long-term, we plan on using India-based licensed manufacturing to support some of our regional customers, so finding a partner with a similar business ethos, as well as the capability and resources to meet our high standards in manufacturing and distribution, was a critical part of the selection process.”
Gainwell Engineering offers engineering design, manufacturing, marketing and maintaining equipment for the global underground mining customer base across India, Australia, Singapore and USA. “By combining our world-leading German engineering know-how, quality and reliability with local manufacture and expertise, we are ideally placed to create machines that are well suited to the needs of customers in India and the surrounding region,” said Daniel Chan. “We are confident that this strategic collaboration is merely the beginning of a long-term partnership providing robust, reliable and premium asphalt and concrete mixing plants that will greatly support India’s vital infrastructure development for many years to come.”
“We are delighted to partner with Lintec & Linnhoff to indigenously manufacture state-of-the-art high-technology products and support the building of sustainable infrastructure for the nation. The endeavour represents India’s abiding commitment to emerge as a self-reliant nation or Atmanirbhar Bharat,” said Sunil Chaturvedi, Chairman & Managing Director, Gainwell Commosales Private Limited
