GOMACO and Schwing Stetter join forces
By Thomas Allen04 May 2017
The concrete equipment manufacturer Schwing Stetter – a subsidiary of the German-based Schwing group – has been given the sales and service rights for the entire range of GOMACO’s concrete paving products across India, except for the state of Telangana.
The Indian government recently announced a drive to build 30km of roads per day, as part of its goal to set up 100 new concrete road projects in the country. In addition, the government wants to increase the contribution of manufacturing output to Gross Domestic Product, from the current 16% to 25% in 2025.
With this in mind, Schwing Stetter has planned to target US$10 million of sales in India during the first year of the association.
Mr.V.G.Sakthikumar, managing director of Schwing Stetter sales and services, said, “Our country can greatly benefit from a product like this, owing to the fact that building concrete roads are cheaper, faster to build, long lasting and require minimum post construction maintenance costs.”
Mr. Kent Godbersen, vice president of worldwide sales and marketing at GOMACO, added, “Schwing Stetter has been serving the concrete construction market in India for nearly 20 years and they will be an excellent partner of GOMACO Corporation and our concrete paving products.”
