Please share your experience about Concrete Show.
Concrete Show is a good opportunity for people who are in the field of construction; concrete equipment, concrete users and producers of the concrete. Here, we have good opportunity to interact with people, see new innovative products and developments that enhance knowledge and use them in the field. It further gives rise to the improvement of the productivity and efficiency of the concrete industry.
What are your offering at this expo?
We are offering various innovative products for sustainable construction and with lesser carbon footprint. Like M100 grade concrete which is the highest-grade concrete in India and also other higher grades, which requires lesser volume than normal grade of concrete for same load carrying capacity. Such high-grade concrete helps in saving aggregate and cement cost and also saving natural reserves for future generations. We are working towards sustainability and have different green products like concrete for parking with water recharge, thermal insulation, light-weight concrete and green concrete.
What makes your product different? How it is differentiated in the industry?
Our R&D team is quite strong and we keep on developing a lot of new products. Just like concrete with longer durability for infrastructure projects, high-thermal resistant concrete and acid resistant concrete. Our focus towards customers is to understand their requirement and develop tailor-made solutions for their specific needs and this is what makes us different from the other RMC players.
How do you see the market demand for RMC in India?
Cement is growing at around 6-7 per cent and concrete is growing at around 15-16 per cent. There is a push from government on the infrastructure sector and low-cost housing sector. Lot of private projects or investments are coming near metros, airports, ports etc. and this is leading to the further growth and job creation. Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities are also going to have many batching plants, thus we are expanding our presence not only in metros but also in Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities. This growth will continue for at least 10 years.
What is your plan ahead for the year?
Last year, our growth was around 35 per cent year-on-year. We are one of the fastest growing RMC companies in India. We have received awards for best and fastest growing company by Builders Association of India (BAI). Our gross turnover is around ₹950 crore and we want to grow around ₹1200 crore in current financial year. We are going to have more numbers of plants not only in metros, but also in other areas.
