Tell us about Atlas Copco’s product launch done at EXCON ‘17.


We have launched two products, compressor XRHS650 a dual pressure machine is basically drilling for water wells, it’s a new machine which is dual pressure, 17 bar and 20 bar, with a simple toggle switch replacement, drills 20 per cent faster, consumes 10 per cent less fuel, so it’s a very good product for this application. The HiLight V5+ is an LED light tower and is the only CPCB II compliant light tower in India for the entire unit.



What kind of market share are you looking for?


Drilling for water wells we already have a strong position. With this new position we expect to be up by another percentage or two.




What is the general business sentiment right now?


Good business cycle everybody is passing through, I think I echo the industry feeling in general. Its good times, and I expect the good times to continue through next 4 to 5 years.




Did EXCON ’17 meet your expectations?


It always meets our expectations, that’s why we are here. Good times for the  first two days, and I think am expecting the next three days also to be nice. Is this a Buyers’ Market? It was always a Buyers’ Market.How tough has been for a global brand like Atlas Copco, competing in the global market, to break into the Indian market. We have been in India since 1960, so we know the market. What we have done is we have produced always in India, for India, at the specs which Indian customer requires, so we have been giving value.
