Raghavan, Managing Director, Proman, in an interview with SKK.
Proman is an important player in providing crushing, screening, and grinding solutions to the construction sector projects. How does it look at the future demand of these products and what projects will create demand pull for these products?
Proman has always provided unique solutions to its customers and is fully capable of upgrading an existing plant by offering solutions to the customer based on his precise requirement. Our ranges of products are unique as compared to what is available in the market. Our product range and mix has made us to operate in usual as well as niche markets. Proman provides solutions that can upgrade existing crushing plants to help produce good quality specification aggregate and crushed sand as well.
We foresee good demand in big capacity rock plants and sand plants.
Tell us something about Proman, its growth since 2001, its business areas and product range and important construction projects on which these products and services have successfully been deployed?
Proman Infrastructure Services Pvt Ltd was formed in 2001, wherein a group of professionals with extensive experience in crushing, screening, and heavy equipment came together. The challenge to many quarry owners is to obtain the right quality of the aggregates at the right price and this can only be achieved by having a total control on the equipment, process, after sales and spares.
Keeping this in mind, Proman was formed and it has a unique alternative approach in this field to help contractors and quarry owners.
Proman started with REMco Vertical Shaft Impact Crushers in 2001.
We have successfully deployed the same in the biggest rock plants and sand plants. The Proman range now includes state-of-the-art jaw crushers, cone crushers, vertical shaft impact crushers and Ortner washing systems as well as vibratory screens and feeders.
There is a shift in the requirements of crushers in favor of higher output machines with advanced automated features. How is Proman positioning itself to this shift with robust technical features added to its machines?
Proman REMco makes the widest range of VSI’s in the world, from 50 HP to 1500 HP. For very big primary and secondary machines, we have strategic associates with whom we offer total turnkey solutions to every kind of customer. We offer advanced monitoring and diagnostic systems for our machines.
We understand that Proman is participating in Excon–2007 at Bangalore. What will be focus of its participation in this Mega event?
Proman will be launching the smallest and the biggest VSI in Excon 2007. We have recently moved to a new state-of the- art spacious manufacturing facility to cater to the growing demand for our products.
Our focus in Excon 07 is to showcase our skills to provide total crushing solutions for producing the best quality finished products catering to any of the standards in the world.
What are Proman’s important marketing and after sales, project management and technical services and how these are being strengthened?
Proman has an in-house technical and design team for executing its projects and our equipment is backed by the design and expertise of our foreign collaborators like REMco, ORTNER, and Finedoor.
In every sale at Proman, aftersales service is the key. Proman with its team of highly experienced engineers provides prompt and efficient aftersales service. Our service engineers are well-trained on the application side thereby providing total solutions to our customers.
How is Proman making its product range price competitive on a sustainable basis with cost of production going up and what policy support from the Government the equipment sector expects to rationalize the rising cost of production?
Balancing the cost with the right quality is an ongoing process and to this end, Proman works proactively with our vendors and associates.
The Government, on its part, has to come out with incentives for capital equipment manufacturers for exports against factors like rupee appreciation, and also ensure a level playing field in terms of taxes and duties when we compete with imported equipment.
