Esquire has surged ahead and evolved as one of the foremost firms in India. The company aspires to assume a leadership position in the Concrete Mixing, Man and Material handling equipment industry across global markets. Gladston Selvaraj, MD, Esquire Machines Pvt.

How was EXCON 2019 for the company?


This edition of EXCON has fared well for us. The response was good. We had a few potential customers walking in and we also managed to close some orders.



The market faced a slowdown last year. On similar lines, how was 2019 for your company?


We were able to perform considerably well and there was no drop. We bettered our previous performance and do not have major issues that hampered our growth.




Any new launches during EXCON?


We, at Esquire Machines have launched a material tower hoist with the rack and pinion type. The earlier versions used to be of the rope type. Due to the safety features and the growing awareness about the operator safety, we have come up with this Rack and Pinion tower hoist. This hoist is a lower range and the cost of owner is lower for the customer. The machine comes with all the safety features. This hoist can reach up to 120 meter height. There are two variants in terms of capacity- 1 Ton and 1.5 Ton capacity. It can be modified into a man hoist with the installation of a cage on the top.




In terms of safety features, are builders and contractors are concerned about safety for the workforce?


The process though is a slower one, the awareness about the safety for the workforce at the site has picked up. They are now started to look at the safety and security aspect. However on a larger scale we have to agree that there has been a considerable negligence.

The real estate market faced a lull in the last year. Your comments?


It is true that the real estate market did not pick up last year. There are signs of improvement. However we have performed well in the last year. We have got a few orders. Going ahead the market will improve and we expect a growth. We are hopeful for the better results in the last quarter.
