"Due to increased demand for our products, we have decided to strengthen our presence in India by establishing a stronger sales network. This move will enable us to better meet the needs of our dealers and customers and deliver comprehensive repair and maintenance services," said Senarat Jayasekera, affiliate manager of Wacker Neuson Equipment Private Ltd.
Wacker Neuson’s light equipment portfolio covers over 250 product groups, comprising mainly walk-behind machinery weighing up to three tons. This portfolio already enjoys considerable success on the Indian market. It includes concrete technology products such as internal and external vibrators, converters and trowels. In addition, Wacker has been a major driving force behind soil and asphalt compaction innovations for over 70 years. Today, this segment extends from rammers and vibratory plates through coupled compactors to rollers. On the demolition front, Wacker Neuson’s offering spans powerful, robust hammers, cut-off saws and floor saws. Due to their power and user-friendly designs, these demolition products allow customers to tackle concrete, natural stone, brickwork and asphalt with equal success. The company also offers light towers to the Indian market. These towers enable construction work to continue at night.
This broad portfolio is united by the top quality and innovative technology that underpin each light equipment product. “In a second step we will also offer compact equipment to the Indian market,” says Jayasekera.

Wacker has made a name for itself in many countries with its customer-oriented repair and maintenance services. “Whether they are looking for machine maintenance or repairs, customers can look forward to high-quality, rapid service from qualified employees at our Wacker Neuson branch offices,” explains Jayasekera. The headquarters of the new affiliate in India will be based in Bangalore. Support centers in strategically important cities such as Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, and Kolkata will function as direct customer contact points, providing local repair work and maintenance services. In addition, the company will continue to work with regional dealers in various areas.
Completed in 2007, the merger between the parent company Wacker Construction Equipment AG and Neuson Kramer Baumaschinen AG has created a major global manufacturer of light and compact equipment. With over 30 affiliates and more than 180 sales and service stations across the globe, the new company offers an unparalleled product portfolio. All products manufactured by the new organization will in future be branded Wacker Neuson.
