Kobelco Construction Equipment India Pvt Ltd, a major player in the construction and mining equipment domain, has outlined plans to strengthen its operations both in the country and in neighbouring countries.

India has been a favourite hub for multinationals involved in the construction and mining equipment space. Kobelco is one such global player which is today a prominent name in the Indian excavator segment. The Japanese major started its operations in India in 2007 by establishing Kobelco Construction Equipment India Pvt Ltd (KCEI).

KCEI today supplies a wide range of hydraulic excavators ranging from 14 to 85 tons. The range of hydraulic excavators has been developed after exhaustive field studies, analysis of applications and onsite working conditions. In addition, the wide range of excavators is equipped with the latest tier-III engines that are most fuel efficient and environment friendly.

KCEI started its manufacturing unit at SriCity in Andhra Pradesh. This constituted a major step in exploring the Indian market and underlining the company’s strong commitment towards India. KCEI manufactures 20-tonne and 35-tonne class excavators, known for their fuel efficiency, at its SriCity unit. The unit started operations in 2011 and has a production capacity of 100 excavators per month. The unit utilises the same technologies and incorporates the best practices which are in vogue at its parent company in Japan. KCEI has stamped its presence in the Indian market through the launch of its ‘Series 8’ hydraulic excavators. The present range of hydraulic excavators offered by KCEI involves – SK 140HDLC, SK 210HDLC & SK210HD, SK 380HDLC, SK 500HDLC and SK 850LC.

KCEI has kept its major focus on customer satisfaction and supports its products with warranty and post warranty services. The excavator major today has a wide dealer network of about 100 service and part outlets across the country, which offers genuine service and spare parts supporty across India.

In India, Kobelco excavators are best known for their proven performance and cost effective ownership because of their high fuel efficiency and working potential that ensures optimum productivity. The latest excavators are a heavy-duty (HD) version of the new generation ‘Series 8’ which are endowed with advanced technical features. For instance, the equipment is installed with an intelligent machine management system which match global standards.

Maximum productivity, reduced downtime and ability to perform in challenging terrain conditions are few among the key demand drivers  in the excavator segment.

The topographical conditions in India are a major challenge faced by equipment manufacturers while supplying products which can meet demand for longer operational hours. Meeting these requirements are Kobelco excavators which are designed to work in tough Indian conditions with reinforced structures. As of today, there are more than 4000 Kobelco machines working in India, of which many have crossed 15,000 hours of operational service. The excavators are deployed in various projects like mines, quarries, road works, irrigation and civil works like metro projects across various cities of India.

The firm is dedicated towards developing unique products with its prime focus on equipment which ensure high fuel-efficiency and low noise features to meet diverse customer requirements. In addition, the company has also streamlined its investment plan of `650 million for strengthening its Indian operations, and is optimistic of expanding its market share in FY15-16. Kobelco Construction Machinery Co Ltd is also focused on strengthening its global presence, especially in the Chinese and Southeast Asian markets.
