Elaborating on its business profile the Chairman and Managing Director, Yogendera Singh revealed that his company is currently one of the biggest infrastructure contractors in Central and Northern India with a specialization in highways and bridge building segment and is actively involved in the massive infrastructure projects currently underway in these regions and credit for the spectacular success goes to the Sandvik, he claimed.
The YIL operates or owns extensive quarrying rights across the state and currently has two Sandvik crushers installed at a distant of 50 km from each other and servicing various quarries at varied and multiple locations. The new installation of the crushing plant follows the exact and accurate specifications of its sister plant as three other plants installed at Bakhrija in Haryana on the outskirts of Delhi are of similar sizes and specifications.
One of the first of its kind crushing plants in India carrying Sandvik's latest corporate features including a jaw crusher, a cone crusher and VSI crusher. The CJ411 jaw crusher is a single-toggle type with a feed opening of 1045x840 mm and a capacity of 340-445 metric tons per hour. The CH440 cone crusher takes rock of 38-215 mm in size and has a capacity of 90-413 metric tons per hour, depending on the application. The VSI crusher is a CV128 with a standard capacity range of 251-444 metric tons per hour. The grizzly feeder is a SW1252H unit. The plant uses two CS144 screens one with two decks and the other with three and these are able to deliver the heavy, medium and fine grades of aggregates as per the requirement.
Not just this, the Sandvik, which is a global industrial group with hi-tech and advanced products, is currently a world leader in areas like tools for metal cutting, equipment and tools for the mining and construction industries, stainless materials, special alloys, metallic and ceramic resistance materials as well as process systems. In addition to this, the Sandvik Group is a leading global supplier of equipment, cemented-carbide tools, service and technical solutions for the excavation and sizing of rock and minerals in the mining and construction industries.
Praising the company for its unmatched products and superb after sales services the YIL Chairman and Managing Director, Mr. Yogendra Singh, claimed that he prefers to stay with the one brand of crusher because of ease in replacements, spares and service and also because of the strong working relationship that it develops with the manufacturer. The Sandvik has helped him a lot to grow right from the time he began developing the aggregates.
He, however, pointed out that the cost of aggregates can be very expensive in areas like Delhi where the demand is high and the transportation costs is even higher. But he realized that if he had to succeed in roads and highways building segment he had to control his own aggregates supplies and therefore moved into quarrying and aggregates production in Madhya Pradesh and Haryana.
The Sandvik has its presence at the YIL offices in Delhi, Haryana and Madhya Pradesh where spares are supplied directly from the Sandvik India headquarters in Pune. Over a period of time, the YIL has developed strong working cooperation with the Sandvik and the bond and relationship between the two is getting stronger, day in and day out.
He said adding that the demand for aggregates in Central and Northern India will remain high for a long period to come and the ongoing infrastructure building process in Delhi will continue for the next 15 years and as India has taken the fast pace of economic development the demand for aggregates for new projects is expected to touch new high in near future.
Similarly, outside Delhi and in Central India, there are other programmes apart from roads and highways like linking the towns and villages thereby changing the provincial and rural landscapes completely. Apart from this, all the segments including Railways, airports, hospitals, dams, IT projects, schools and pipelines laying projects will require aggregates of massive quantity. Currently, funding is also easily available from diverse sources including state owned and national financing institutions besides, overseas agencies are also extending funds on easy terms and conditions ensuring bright future for companies like Sandvik.
