Forest Press Machineries
At Excon, we are launching our Mini Press for Kerbs, Slabs, and Flag Tiles. Our other star attraction will be
Mega Star Planetary mixers, 4 Station press machine, Block Master series of machines & AAC plants made in association with WKB Germany.
Our new manufacturing facility is under construction and is expected to be ready by March 2018. It covers 60,000 sq.ft. with a built-up area for production, service, and engineering. It will be one of the biggest facilities in this industry with 6 overhead cranes, including a 50 ton, for heavy assemblies. Apart from this, robotic welding, machining and handling systems will be in place to maintain the high quality and accuracy in the products and their output. Service is most important in this industry as the machines have heavy vibrations and accurate controls. As they work with aggregates and cement, they create a lot of dust and often damage the parts. So, availability of parts is very important; and we use only those sourced from top global suppliers.
Forest Press machines are designed with maximum electrical controls, which help to ease diagnosis. We have a 24/7 service facility and are in the process of setting up more such facilities in other parts of the world. Forest Press is a British company with sales and services in 20 countries. We started the facility in Bangalore two years back and have already exported our machines to Bahrain, Qatar, Nepal and Iran.
We see India as the manufacturing hub for the group and associate companies. Forest Press is associated with WKB from Germany, AME from Austria, HMB Moulds from Germany and Eco Filters from UK. Westa is our main agent in Iran; KSN Services in Middle East; and Zcon in Vietnam. We are looking for agents and dealers in US, Canada, Australia, and African continents.
We are working on several new products and franchisee system in India, which we will announce next year or so. Most of the new developments are in developing markets of Asia, Middle East, and Africa. The quality, service and cost will be major factors, so we will come out with simple and economic solutions to adapt to these markets.
Project-based solutions and maximum use of fly ash, pond ash, crusher powder and iron ore briquetting is possible with Forest Press Machines.
