KYB-Conmat moves concrete worldwide
KYB’s stationary concrete batching plants are successfully deployed worldwide, whenever demand arises in infrastructure development where concrete is involved. Company’s presence is very strong in concrete road construction, metro rail construction, high rise construction, dam construction and many more crucial areas.
KYB-Conmat is associated with the prestigious project Vrindavan Chandrodaya Mandir. The stationary concrete batching plant CRP-900 IL5 is used by VCM, the project which is not conventional, it is carved, circular and 3-dimensional which makes this project quite challenging, since this type of architect is happening for the first time in India KYB-Conmat is very honoured and proud for being considered to join hands with VCM for this prestigious project.
“It is a very international level project with beautiful architecture in India and we are proud to be connected with this prestigious project. The VCM team felt that this is challenging for them, so they were looking for a concrete partner who should be committed and can perform as per their expectation, we have multiple other machines also like concrete batching plant and transit mixer of KYB-Conmat working perfectly with no barriers and thus not only KYB-Conmat equipment will save the time and workforce, but also the capital cost overall,” said Sailaj Verma Senior Vice President Sales, KYB-Conmat Pvt Ltd.
The team along with the project manager specially came from Mathura to head office at Vadodara, to see the process as they wanted to produce special type of concrete for the temple called SCC (self-compacting concrete) which is a highly flowable, non-segregating concrete that can spread into place, fill the formwork and encapsulate the reinforcement without any mechanical consolidation. After the team got convinced, the temple team has placed an order for procuring a 90 cu.m./hour batching plant from KYB Conmat, a Japanese-Indian firm. Another order for three transit mixers of 7-cu.m. capacity was also placed.
“KYB-Conmat products are the most reliable and also the best service provider. They are also versatile and robust. With a back-up of good after-sales service and easy availability of spare parts, it did make sense for us to use KYB-Conmat machines for the construction of most notable temple in the world,” said Abhishek Prakash, Project Manager, Vrindavan Chandrodaya Mandir.
