The anti-vibration solution comprises front and rear engine mounts, control links, chassis bumper pads, conical bearing reaction rods, mds mounts, anti-circulation mounts, engine and radiator mounts among others. The products are made available directly to the OEM’s by Trelleborg. The company does not have any plan to promote its products for the aftermarket.

Asked on the company’s plans to diversify across other verticals of off-highway equipment, Mr. Gupta explained that, they were contriving to tap the areas offering volumes business. Responding to a query that how does the company see the crushing and screening sector for its anti-vibration solutions, and how would the company be looking to make different solutions for the premium and non-premium crushers available in the market? Mr. Gupta answered, the crushing and screening sector was indeed a potential market for them where they had solutions to address the requirements for the same.
