Ammann’s entry to the Indian market
16. December 2009

Ammann exhibited asphalt mixing plants and compaction machines for the first time in India, at the Excon show in Bangalore. Ammann was one of the few exhibitors to also receive a visit from His Excellency Kamal Nath, the Indian Minister of Road Transport and Highways.

 

At 3.4 million kilometres, India’s road network is the largest in the world. However, around half of it is not asphalted and is generally in a poor state. Such roads are unable to keep up with growing traffic volume, and that is putting a brake on India’s economic development. Accordingly, infrastructure expansion is a priority for the Indian government. The government is upping the pace, and intends to put $20 billion worth of road building projects out to tender over the coming months. Plans to increase the building rate from two to twenty kilometres of road a day call for enormous capacity that does not exist in India at present. The Ammann Group is ready to help Indian customers achieve this ambitious target with its decades-long experience and innovative, environmentally friendly products.

 

Ammann was present at the Bangalore show with a vivid display of compaction equipment and asphalt mixing plants.
