BKT plans greenfield projects in USA and Waluj and new line in Bhuj


The Board of Directors of BKT, a market leader in the mining tyres segment, has firmed a capital expenditure (capex plan) of up to $100 million for setting up a greenfield tire plant with a capacity of 20,000 MT p.a in USA through a wholly-owned subsidiary (to be set up). The company shall also incur capex of up to over ₹1,000 crore for its local operations. The entire capex will be completed within a period of 30 months and is in addition to the current capex underway for the Carbon Black Plant.

Sales volume has been around 30,000 MT in the Americas and increased traction in sales volume is expected over the next few years. A local plant would accelerate the growth prospects. The USA project will be funded via investments from the parent company and local debt.

With regard to Waluj in Aurangabad, a greenfield project will be set up on a freehold land of 22 acres owned by the company, which is within a 5-km radius of the current location. The capex for setting up the new state-of-the-art facilities will be approximately ₹500 crore, including a co-generation plant and in-house warehousing facility for raw materials and finished goods. The new facilities will bring greater operational efficiencies, leading to a recurring saving in operation. The existing plant will continue to operate till the new plant becomes operational, and there would be no change in the capacity.
