2016 has been a remarkable year so far for JCB India as we see strong growth returning in the Earthmoving and Construction Equipment industry. Roads and Highways is one of the key sectors driving this growth, supported by the development of physical infrastructure in both, urban and rural India. JCB, with its range of products, is well positioned to leverage this growth opportunity.
The Government has made efforts in creating an environment for revival of growth in the infrastructure space. Also, programmes like Make in India have shown great potential in transforming India into a world class manufacturing hub. As a company we are committed to this programme. We were the leading exhibitors at the “Make in India” week held earlier this year at Mumbai where we showcased over 20 products and had the largest outdoor stand at the event.
From a policy perspective, the passage of GST in the Rajya Sabha was a critical milestone. It is an important step towards free trade within India, and will also give a push towards the ease of doing business in the country.
With the onset of this growth, JCB introduced three new, innovative material handling product ranges, Telehandlers, Skid Steers and Super Loaders. Aimed at replicating the global best practices in India, these products are now revolutionising the way material is handled at Indian construction sites.
The coming months will be exciting as JCB India is all set to introduce new world class products.
Wishing you and your families a happy and prosperous festive season ahead.
