Am­mann Apollo Tech­nol­ogy or­ga­nized a global Meet at its newly re­fur­bished man­u­fac­tur­ing fa­cil­ity in Gu­jarat. The Meet was at­tended by over 1000 at­ten­dees in­clud­ing prod­uct deal­ers, con­trac­tors, fi­nanciers, project con­sul­tants from the SAARC coun­tries, Rus­sia, South Africa, Mid­dle East, and Philippines, be­sides In­dia. Gu­jarat Deputy Chief Min­is­ter, Nitin Pa­tel graced the oc­ca­sion, which was presided over by Han­sChris­tian Schnei­der, CEO, Am­mann Group.

Speak­ers in­cluded se­nior prod­uct line spe­cial­ists from Am­mann’s as­phalt, paving and com­paction line from Switzer­land, all of whom ex­changed in­for­ma­tion on the com­pet­i­tive at­tributes of the prod­ucts for bet­ter qual­ity and high pro­duc­tiv­ity, such as en­ergy ef­fi­ciency and ap­pro­pri­ate heat trans­fer.

De­liv­er­ing the key­note ad­dress, Schnei­der said, “The ob­jec­tive of this Meet is to show­case the best of tech­nolo­gies from Am­mann’s global plat­form for road con­struc­tion equip­ment across the value chain, be­gin­ning from ma­te­ri­als to sur­face prepa­ra­tion and lay­ing. Also, to ex­hibit Am­mann’s su­pe­rior man­u­fac­tur­ing ca­pa­bil­ity, and our newly set up train­ing academy at our man­u­fac­tur­ing fa­cil­ity at Mehsana in Ahmed­abad. Our high-end prod­ucts are backed by world class tech­nolo­gies, and our pro­duc­tion out­put has risen close to 70%.”

The event also wit­nessed the launch of new prod­ucts: AFT 500 tracked as­phalt paver, and Valuetec - batch as­phalt mix­ing plant. The Coun­ter­mix 120 is highly en­ergy ef­fi­cient, rap ready, easy to trans­port, and a con­tin­u­ous plant with counter-flow tech­nol­ogy. The AFT 500 tracked as­phalt paver has a Moba dash­board for ease of op­er­a­tion, and a spa­cious op­er­a­tor plat­form with a wide view for good paving re­sult. The ma­chine en­ables max­i­mum paving width of 7 me­ters.

The new prod­ucts are be­ing man­u­fac­tured at Am­mann’s new fa­cil­ity, which has man­u­fac­tur­ing lines for batch mix plants, pavers and com­pactors, with com­plete fab­ri­ca­tion, assem­bly, paint­ing and test­ing.

As re­gards the com­pany’s com­pet­i­tive edge over other brands, Schnei­der at the side­line of the event said, “We have a com­plete prod­uct line that includes the eco­nomic range as well as the pre­mium class of prod­ucts, so, we are well po­si­tioned to com­pete with both seg­ments of play­ers in the mar­ket, es­pe­cially with our pavers and com­pactors. We are con­fi­dent of de­liv­er­ing lower life­cy­cle costs through our in-house man­u­fac­tur­ing ca­pa­bil­i­ties, and re­li­able af­ter-sales ser­vice.”

Am­mann Apollo Tech­nol­ogy, a road con­struc­tion man­u­fac­turer, is an en­tity of Am­mann of Switzer­land.
