Sixty percent of the components would be of local origin comprising crawlers and fabrication parts whereas 40% of the components comprising engines, boom would continue to be imported. We would also strengthen customer support for our cranes through our distributor Voltas.” There has been a steep appreciation of Japanese Yen at the rate of 25-30% making the Kobelco cranes dearer in India.
