"bauma CONEXPO INDIA will be an excellent opportunity to meet customers and to showcase our premium range of equipment for Road Building and Road Rehabilitation. Wirtgen’s new SM 220 Surface Miner and MT 3000-2 Power Feeder from Vogele will be showcased for the first time at the trade event. Wirtgen Group application experts from India and the Wirtgen, Vögele, Hamm and Kleemann brand headquarters in Germany will be available to answer any questions customers may have."

We expect demand for road construction / rehabilitation to continue for the next 3 years.

The last few years have been very good in regard to project awards for construction of roads. We expect this trend to continue with construction of 27 kms/day and the government working towards increasing this to 40 km/day. With the infrastructure development polices of the government, there is a lot of growth potential for the CE industry. The government’s ambitious plans to develop the road sector are being executed well, leading to increase in demand for road construction equipment. As market leaders in the road building and rehabilitation segment, we have benefitted from this demand. With the increasing number of projects being awarded, we expect demand to continue for the next three years.

Our agenda is to offer innovative products and technologies to help customers build better roads.

During the last few years, we did some expansions for the Vogele and Kleemann production at our Pune plant and we rolled out Kleemann screens for both the domestic market and for export to global markets. With demand picking up, we are increasing our production capacity for the Hamm rollers. On the Vogele front, we have commenced production of our 6 meter class of wheeled and tracked pavers of the Super Series. We have also invested in enhancing our after-market and sales support services. We expect a stable growth this year and our agenda is to offer innovative products and technologies to our customers which will help them to build better roads at an optimum cost.

Wirtgen India

The Wirtgen Group offers 360-degree solutions for road construction and rehabilitation.

The Wirtgen Group has been continuously innovating and developing new products, and all our road technology brands – Wirtgen, Vogele, Hamm and Kleeman - are not only global market leaders but also innovation leaders, the average age of a machine being not more than 3 years.

We have been consistently developing products that offer higher efficiency in terms of fuel consumption, which helps in sustainable development and less carbon emissions, lower life cycle costs, and better productivity. Most of the big and medium sized road contractors are looking at the total cost of ownership, liability, and technology to help them finish their job faster and with the right quality.

Wirtgen India

We are offering leading technologies from Germany for the Indian market.

The Wirtgen Group has maintained a strong presence in India for over 20 years through its local sales and service companies. At its local production facility with an adjacent workshop in Pune, the Group also manufactures local machine models. Wirtgen India, the local sales and service company, also operates a modern Training Center for transfer of know-how of German technologies not only to its staff, but customers also benefit from what they learn at the center in their daily job-site operations.

We have expanded our product range to include locally manufactured machine models in India.

India remains one of the world’s largest and most important growth markets. A variety of infrastructure projects are currently being implemented under current infrastructure policy, which is geared towards maintaining and expanding the infrastructure nationwide. Together with efficient construction methods, innovative, high-performance machine technologies can help to safeguard the functionality of the road infrastructure in the long term.

Wirtgen India

To optimally support our customers in meeting challenges, we have steadily expanded our product range for the Indian market to include locally manufactured machine models. For example, Vögele pavers and Kleemann screens have also been manufactured in Pune for several years, alongside the Hamm 311 compactors and HD 99 rollers.

The Wirtgen Group subsidiary in India has also expanded its sales and service network to more than 20 bases. With our reliable service and on-site support, customers are ideally positioned to take on any project, work profitably and deliver high quality.
