“One of our compressors completed 14000 hours of operation without any breakdowns. We are confident that the long life of our equipment and performance will bring a sense of value over and above the price point. We will also expand our service team and will offer attractive service packages to our customers,” he adds.
The company is prepared to make the transition to eco-friendly compressors when the Indian government comes up with regulations for compressors as regards carbon emissions. “We will just have to invest an additional Rs.1.5 lakhs or so to develop an eco-friendly compressor. We were also the first to use the next-gen electronic engine in the compressor.”
According to him, the diesel compressor market in India is producing 4000-5000 units every year, including a substantial number of borewell compressors; but since this segment is seasonal, there can be huge volatility in the numbers. “In the next two years, most of the players in this segment will begin to launch new, innovative products, which will be more efficient and less fuel consuming. EXCON gave us the platform to present our company as the 4th national diesel compressor manufacturer, and also as a crushing plant manufacturer,” he says.
