"As is our custom, we will surprise our customers and guests with some very innovative and extremely interesting features and solutions that have been designed to dramatically increase their operational efficiency. Visitors will be amazed to live the Putzmeister innovative experience first-hand at our stand."

Our Batching Plant MT – 3.0 is the only one in the market that offers a true output of 120 m3/hr.

Over the last 60 years Putzmeister has developed products that offer higher productivity, reliability and efficiency. We are known globally for our ability and commitment to find the best solutions in the harshest environments and the most challenging application conditions. To quote a few examples: our recently launched Batching Plant MT – 3.0 is the only one in the market that offers a true output of 120 m3/hr, thanks to a 3 cubic meter twin-shaft mixer.

We have the highest local manufacturing content which allows us to adapt German engineering to Indian requirements. We ensure that our products are designed to ensure low maintenance and therefore minimal downtime. Putzmeister customers enjoy a lower total cost of ownership in the long run.

Each year, the Putzmeister group invests more than 5% of its turnover into R&D.

Since many years our R&D department has the protection of the environment in their focus. That’s why we developed efficient cooling systems to dramatically reduce the hydraulic oil needed for operating our pumps; we work with engine manufacturers to reduce emission norms, fuel consumption and noise; we have developed software and hardware to run our machines more efficiently; and have designed inclined belt conveyors with hoods for cleaner aggregate movement.

The Putzmeister Group invests 5% of its turnover in R&D every year to ensure that we continue to offer the right products, equipment and services to our customers. Our state-of-the-art R&D facilities in Aichtal (Germany) and in Goa use advanced testing techniques and equipment to develop new designs for function, durability, usability and service. For example, every new truck-mounted concrete pump that Putzmeister introduces in the market, has been thoroughly tested by simulating 15 years of operation. In fact, this type of live cycle testing is standard for our entire product range.

Our technology is developed for all our equipment to help customers improve their productivity, safety, fleet management and preventive maintenance. All our Batching Plants, for instance, have fully computerized software to help operators and owners monitor operations and enjoy hassle-free maintenance. We anticipate customer requirements and constantly work towards developing solutions best suited for individual markets.

150 service engineers and technicians and 20 genuine spare parts branches give round-the-clock support to customers.

We provide a range of service solutions for preventive maintenance and regular maintenance. Our network of 150 service engineers and technicians and 20 genuine spare parts branches give round-the-clock support to our customers. Furthermore, we offer a higher ratio of service engineers and technicians per customer.

More recently, we have been offering operations and maintenance services in which Putzmeister will embed a team on customer site to help him run the equipment and carry out regular maintenance as required.

We will continue to develop products most suited to the Indian market, offer our customers our worldwide expertise gathered over the last 60 years to enable them to focus on their core business, improve their profitability and choose us as their preferred partner. To give the best support to our customers, Putzmeister is mainly focusing on direct sales, service and application support.

Putzmeister India not only serves customers in India, but also covers Nepal, Bangladesh, Bhutan and Maldives. In addition, we also sell equipment to Middle East, Africa and South East Asia.

This year we launched our new 120 m3/hr Batching Plant, and our P6, P7 transit mixers and more products will follow soon.

During the last 3–4 years, Putzmeister has been growing faster than the market. We introduced a range of concrete solutions during this time for the RMC, plastering, screeding, tunnelling and mining sectors. We have also increased our solutions for industrial applications like backfilling, waste management, transporting of fly ash etc. And 2018 just confirms the positive trend: we launched our new 120 m3/hr Batching Plant, and our P6, P7 transit mixers, and there is more to come soon.

We expect to see an increasing shift from traditional construction practices to mechanization.

We believe infrastructure and affordable housing developments will continue to drive demand for equipment in the coming years. In addition, we expect to see an increasing shift from traditional construction practices to mechanization. Our customers are witnessing a shortage of labour. There is an increased expectation that the industry follows green norms and safeguard. Finishing the projects in a timely manner will become one of the most important KPI’s in the near future.

However, a weak rupee combined with the threat of rising inflation and a general shortage of financing possibilities is giving our customers a hard time. We are working on solutions to help our customer to overcome some of these issues, but we expect the government to hold out a helping hand by introducing adequate measures to overcome the financial crisis.
