Adding New Dimension To Marketing Tie–ups

marketing collaborations among equipment manufacturers
As distribution tie-ups increasingly become the norm of the day among construction equipment manufacturers, companies having entered into marketing collaborations, are scouting for innovative sales promotional strategies for their parents. All to gain greater market access and depth. P. P. Basistha finds out the details.
The present growth of the construction equipment market in India is increasingly being characterized by marketing collaborations among equipment manufacturers. The backdrops behind the collaborations is burgeoning equipment demand, which a better marketing tie-up among manufacturers can take upon. Tie-ups are also being carried with the business intention to promote newer products, for the fast becoming mechanized construction market.

Consolidation of market position is also one of the "prime intentions" behind collaborations in the fast growing competitive market. As per the equipment industry estimates, size of India's construction equipment market, based on its value is likely to reach Rs 12,000 crores in 2008 from Rs.9,000 crores during 2007.

A comprehensive random survey done among country's construction equipment marketing companies across the value chain shows, behind looking for greater market access, companies are banking on their existing market network under their own product domain. On this, manufacturers are undertaking right product positioning coupled with making promotional channels well structured, through upgrading networking capabilities, through adequate, well trained service engineers deployment, and sufficient components availability. All to aid better product promotion and create brand value for their parents.

Product sales are being done through business development, in case of newer equipment as well by distributors, who are also manufacturers in many cases. Notwithstanding, challenges confront many in way of sales through tie-ups.

Sound Product Placement

Right product positioning has allowed notable equipment manufacturers drive sales. Coupled with this have been adequate market knowledge base to push up sales.

The proven case is Telcon, excavators manufacturing major, with more than fifty five percent market share in the Indian excavators market. Explaining the success behind the wholesome market share, Mr. Vikram Raje, Vice President and General Manger, Sales & Marketing, Telcon said, "the success behind our markets share has been our product offering, consisting wide range of excavators, based on the customised requirements of the end users."

He points out, "to gain business volumes in a construction market like India having heterogeneous demand requirement, it is much pertinent for an equipment manufacturer, precisely one's involved in producing earthmoving equipment to place wide range of products for its customers."

Mr. Raje informs, "Telcon can offer excavators ranging from capacity of 2 tonnes-120 tonnes and even beyond through import from Hitachi, our principal technical collaborating partner."

However, Mr. Raje points out Telcon's success has also to be greatly attributed to the competitive features of its excavators, which the company has been able to gain through its technical collaboration with Japan's Hitachi Construction Machinery Limited, ever since 1984. This has allowed Telcon create brand value for its excavators in the market over the years.

Construction Equipment
Mr. Raje elaborates, "Hitachi being a world leader in hydraulic technology have enabled us to create machines, which can operate with high productivity. Besides, Hitachi technology has allowed Telcon in creating machines by operating all its integrating functions, functions of the engine with the boom, engine with the under carriage and so on. Improvements through the collaboration have been done to reduce the overall weight of the machine to make it more flamboyant in its performance. The reduced overall weight of the machine as a consequence have gone on to minimize fuel consumption, thus checking its lopsided performance."

He adds, "All the refined operational features created through the collaboration have gone on creating acceptance of the product in an increasing order over the years."

Technical collaboration with Hitachi has allowed Telcon introduce new range of construction equipment in its basket, like heavy duty crawler lattice boom cranes, used for construction of ports, refinery, power stations etc. Telcon is the distributor of Hitachi-Sumitomo crawler lattice boom cranes in India.

Success for Telcon has also been due to its adequate back up service and component support capabilities. The company has a mother warehouse at Nagpur and four feeder warehouses. In addition, it has 35 dealers and 150 service outlets, operating across the country for providing after sales services support.

Taking service support further efficient, over the years, Telcon has been laying emphasis in offering customized support solutions and maintenance packages for the customer at a mutually agreed cost. Under the maintenance package it undertakes upkeep of the equipment for the customers over its lifetime.

marketing collaborations among equipment manufacturers
Right product positioning, efficient market knowledge, adequate network access locations across the country complemented with networking capabilities, through offering requisite service support have also yielded illustrious success for ECEL. As Mr. Rajesh Sharma, Chief General Manager Sales, Escorts Construction Equipment Limited points out, "for efficient product promotion market knowledge base is the prime tool. However, this has to be much complemented with right product placement having competitive features. Further, product offerings have to be backed by adequate service and component support and ECEL as a major Indian construction equipment manufacturer have always heavily adhered to this norm."

Rightfully said this, today ECEL is the market leader in pick-n-carry cranes with more than 66 percent of the market share. ECEL manufactures wide range of hydraulic pick-n-carry and rough errain cranes. The cranes have a lifting capacity ranging from 12 tonnes to 40 tonnes. The company has recently introduced TRX series yard cranes with a lifting capacity ranging from 16–23 tonnes.

Cranes
The wide lifting capacities and operational features of the ECEL's cranes are suited for assorted industrial material lifting and construction application. Making in turn ECEL the cranes market leader in India giving it a competitive marketing edge.

Coupled with being a prime crane manufacturer allowing it to have a competitive edge, ECEL has well calibrated distribution channels across the country. The equipment manufacturing major, has 88 distributors and dealers across the nation. It intends to take the number to 100 by the first quarter of 2008 and further to 135 till the year 2009. Its well placed dealer and distribution network have been allowing ECEL gain sizeable business volumes. The company was able to sell 2,800 machine units during 2006 and 4,200 units during 2007-08.

This consists its tie-up with crawler cranes manufacturing major like IHI of Japan, for distributing its high capacity crawler cranes, with Weihai Huata Building Machinery of China for its tower cranes in India. Italy's Fassi for its articulated boom cranes. US's Altec for its power and Telecom Utility Equipment the collaboration was entered a month ago and with Doosan for distribution of its forklift trucks. ECEL as of now, has 550 service engineers in field and it has sold 1,500 units of Doosan's forklift trucks ever since its tie-up with the company in 1996.

Through the tie-ups, supported by its marketing and service network, ECEL has been able to provide sizeable business volumes to its partners. As per figures provided by ECEL, it has been able to book 35 IHI crawler cranes since September 2008 onwards. For Weihai Huata, it was able to sell 62 units of tower cranes during 2007-08. For Fassi, the tie up which has been seven to eight months back the manufacturer could sell 37 units.

The voluminous sales backed by wide marketing and distribution network have reinforced ECEL's position to become a further competitive equipment manufacturing and distributing company in India.

marketing collaborations among equipment manufacturers
As per Mr. Prashant Kumar, Senior Manager Marketing, Hess Polytech, "long standing experience in the concrete industry have allowed us to go for a marketing arrangement with Hess." He says, "our main marketing USP for selling the Hess machines is that we sell the block making machine as an entire package with Polytech's concrete batching plant, to customers having large requirements of blocks comprising two million blocks per project or even more."

Material Handling & Construction Equipment
Mr. Kumar says, the collaboration which is a year old, has so far allowed Polytech, sell two machines as of now. However, with greater awareness of the product, Polytech expects to sell large number of machines. Polytech would be targeting construction companies engaged in construction of shopping malls, IT parks having large requirement of blocks for the machines. It would also be looking for cement producing companies for the product.

Similar approach to promote products based on required solutions have been for Chowgule & Company Private Limited. Chowgule & Co has a cranes division and is the distributor of Japanese Furukawa's truck and tractor mounted telescopic cranes in the country.

marketing collaborations among equipment manufacturers
Mr. Arjun Chowgule, Senior Manager, Chowgule & Co says, "we have a comprehensive knowledge data base on the lifting requirements ranging from core construction, real estate and industrial lifting applications.

Chowgule has its sales and service locations based in Mumbai, Goa, Delhi, Kolkata, Chennai, Hyderabad, Bangalore Ahmedabad, and Pune. The company have been able to sell 150 units ever since its tie-up with Furukawa three and half years ago.

Company willing to make ground in the construction market through offering customized lifting solutions is Mumbai based, C.S. Diesel Engineering Pvt Limited. C.S Diesels which has entered into a marketing alliance with Italian crane manufacturer, TCM during mid September 2007 wants to make it big in the Indian crane market.

marketing collaborations among equipment manufacturers
Mentioning on the tie-up and wide range of cranes available with TCM, Mr. Sowmil.C.Shah, Director, C.S Diesel mentiones, "TCM manufactures wide range of truck mounted cranes, rough terrain cranes and also a crane, apparently new for the Indian market, crawler telescopic cranes. The wide range of cranes on offer by TCM can be used for various customized lifting applications, ranging from industrial to construction applications."

Mr. Shah informs to sell TCM products, C. S Diesel would be looking to market the cranes directly to the end users, comprising, industrial users, construction companies rather that crane hiring companies.

C.S Diesel, which incidentally is the distributor of L&T Komatsu's excavators in Mumbai and Goa and also for Cummins, have adequate market network base on the equipment requirement of construction industry.

Solutions on other end of Value Chain

Offering products to suit customized construction solutions for end users is also the marketing strategy for distributors, selling products, away from the core value chain.

The top most category to fill this slot can be accorded to Multiquip. The company has reaped success on marketing collaborations front, through offering products for tailor made construction solutions is also for Multiquip Construction Equipment Pvt Limited. Multiquip Construction Equipment is the distributor of US based, Multiquip's construction equipment in Indian subcontinent, Middle East and at Common Wealth of Independent States of the erstwhile, Soviet Union.

Among the few prominent products, Multiquip sells out of its wide range of construction equipment includes, hydraulic power trowels, super screed fixed form pavers, generators, lighting systems for construction sites etc.

Multiquip Construction Equipment Pvt Ltd, entered into a distribution collaboration with Multiquip during 2004. Ever since the tie-up, it has sold around 1000 various equipment registering a 10 percent increase in turn over in recent years. Apart from distribution, the company has recently started manufacturing light towers for Multiquip USA in India.

marketing collaborations among equipment manufacturers
Behind the successful distribution tie up, Mr. Narinder Jit Singh, Director, Multiquip Construction says, " our success has been based on our ability to offer wide range of construction equipment, that a contractor can require for his project." He further adds, "Multiquip's success has also been based on the sustained efficient service of its sub-distributors to the end customers." It presently has four distributors and aims to increase it to 10 by 2009 fiscal.

Mumbai based Multiquip, has its sales and service points at Pune, Hyderabad, Bangalore and Coimbatore for service and component support. The company's mother warehouse is at Mumbai.

Second to fill the category to offer range of products could be Delhi based, BellStone Hi-Tech International. BellStone offerings consists of, construction machinery, survey equipment, laboratory testing equipment, tools & hardware sourced from number of foreign and domestic equipment manufacturers.

marketing collaborations among equipment manufacturers
As per Mr. Ashish Sethi, Managing Director, BellStone, "we at BellStone have different departments for offering different construction equipment, with stock intact." He adds, "zxwe regularly keep on collecting regular feed–back from the construction market on its requirement of equipment, based on which we maintain our stocks and also introduce new range of equipment." However, Mr. Sethi mentions, "in order to maintain a brand loyalty we keep a product of a single brand at our disposal."

Bell Stone International, which owes its credit to its construction department store for range of products to be offered, has a common service department for providing service back up support. The common service department coordinates with the department head below for offering components and service support.

Promotion on Value Addition

Offering improved product line under their own domain of product expertise is also a promotional strategy adopted by certain distributors. For this, they have entered into marketing tie-ups with foreign equipment manufacturers to promote new range of products in the country. This can be cited by the reference of Mumbai based, Allen Buildwell Pvt Ltd, distributors of US made Allen concrete pavers in India.

"Allen Buildwell have been very active since 1996 in promoting several interesting Construction equipment connected to Concrete Mixing and equipment for Slipforming Roads, Aprons, Irrigation Canals, Drains, Barriers, Kerbs and so on.

Guntert & Zimmerman Inc. USA, M/s. Power Curbers Inc. USA, and M/s. Power Pavers Inc. USA. M/s. QICKERBER, Australia have given the Indian contractors a large range of equipment to cover all types of concrete slipforming jobs." The technical support provided by these companies before and after the machine is commissioned, cannot be matched by our competitors. Like Allen Buildwell, all our principales believe in Quality and not in Quantity. We do not want to be the Largest/Biggest, like our competitors aim to be but we are striving to be the Best with most customer satisfaction. It is our effort to educate the clients on proper selection of the equipment and the accessories. We have not appointed any sub-dealers or agents to avoid the clients being sold wrong equipment because of the zeal of the dealers in procuring orders at any cost. We have found this to our advantage during sales and after sales. The client is directly in touch with us and our principals, there is absolute transparency maintained in all dealing between Allen Buildwell, customers and our principals. This results in quick actions and decisions in case of any breakdown or need for urgent replacements.
Construction Equipment
The Logo of Allen Buildwell is a giant tortoise with a slogan that says "SLOW BUT SURE". Considering the excellent 100% growth since 2005, this has paid richly to our being accepted in the Indian market as manufacturers and representatives of qualitative with satisfactory service support throughout the lifetime of the equipment.

Sales through offering value added products is the marketing strategy adopted by umpteen number of Indian construction equipment manufacturers and distributors, representing the bottom end of the value chain, through their marketing tie ups with foreign manufacturers.

marketing collaborations among equipment manufacturers
This category is filled by Mumbai based, Ispat Infrastructure India Pvt Ltd. Ispat has a distribution arrangement with Piat of Italy for marketing its rack and pinion passenger and material hoists and platforms. As per Mr. Kapil Ghai, Director, Ispat Infrastructure "the platforms have its valued USP as compared to other construction labor material lifting platforms in terms of its safety offerings."

The company has a distribution tie-up with Korean rock breaking equipment manufacturers for distribution of their products in the country. It has tie-ups with manufacturers based on the time period ranging from 7-10 years each. Mehta Earthmovers is also into the business of crane rentals.

marketing collaborations among equipment manufacturers
Behind the gain made from the tie-ups Mr. Mehul Mehta, Director, Mehta Earth–Movers says, "wide range of product placement, aided by sincerity and efficient customer support have enabled us to gain dividends."

In the category to offer value added products also comes, Pakona Engineers (India) Limited. Pakona Engineers is a joint venture company with Colombia Machines, Inc USA. It manufactures automatic plant for interlocking pavers, hollow and solid blocks, flyash bricks, kerb stones, retaining wall blocks etc. The company claims the value added features of its products owing to its rugged and high output features.

Confronting Challenges

Though marketing tie-ups both with Indian and foreign partners and may have proved to be dividend paying for one and many distributors but the story has also been not too rosy with couple of distributors.

marketing collaborations among equipment manufacturers
As the case goes for Right Vision India Pvt Ltd, representative of Germany's Lasco Brick making machines. As per Mr. B.P. Bharti, "Director though our tie up with Lasco has been four years old but we are yet to make head way in sales." He attributes to the negative sales of the machines owing to its high capital investment cost. However, to promote sales, Right Vision would be targeting power sector and the steel industry.

Promotion of equipment sales based on tie-ups has also brought its set of challenges for, Kam-Avida, Enviro-Engineers Pvt Ltd. Kam Avida is the Indian distributor of U.K based Johnston made road sweepers and also U.K based Thredfort municipal garbadge compaction equipment.

As per Mr. Manish Chandra, G.M, Sales, Kam-Avida "the products, which are used in municipal applications have been finding slow acceptance due to modest business development initiatives and follow up by the dealers appointed by us with the municipal departments." However, the company is on the way to correct the anomaly.

Be as it may, challenges in way for manufacturing and distributing companies looking for sales is a silver lining. This can prove to be good learning exercise for the companies in making their marketing strategies reoriented and distribution channels well organized and be partner of the greater lot of the country's equipment marketing fraternity, that is enjoying business success.
