Ma­cons In­di­genis­ing Yet An­other New Prod­uct - Aerial Work Plat­forms

NBM&CW - - AERIAL WORK PLATFORMS -

Ma­cons Equip­ments has many firsts to its credit and is a pi­o­neer in man­u­fac­tur­ing a se­ries of global qual­ity prod­ucts on In­dian soil in or­der to bring af­ford­abil­ity to the users.

Ma­cons Equip­ments is a pi­o­neer of sorts. When most In­dian com­pa­nies chose to im­port high-tech ma­chines from global man­u­fac­tur­ers, which few cus­tomers could af­ford and use, Dharmesh Sure­lia de­cided to make them in In­dia. This way, he could bring down costs and make them ac­ces­si­ble to a larger num­ber of users. With a far-sighted view of the con­struc­tion in­dus­try, he could en­vis­age the de­mand that would em­anate for such ma­chines.

In 2000, Ma­cons launched the first in­dige­nously de­signed and de­vel­oped Kerb­ing Ma­chine for lay­ing of di­viders, drain lines etc. These ma­chines proved ideal for op­er­a­tions at var­i­ous NHAI projects all over In­dia. What fol­lowed was a se­ries of new ma­chines such as mo­bile and semi mo­bile truck mounted con­crete batch­ing/mix­ing plant, and MAC se­ries of com­pact con­crete batch­ing plant in tech­ni­cal col­lab­o­ra­tion with in­ter­na­tional com­pa­nies. To­day, the Ma­cons brand is vis­i­ble across the coun­try for its su­pe­rior ma­chines, ef­fi­cient af­ter-sales ser­vice, and re­li­able cus­tomer sup­port.

The com­pany has re­cently joined hands with Italy’s lead­ing com­pany Socage S.r.l, which has been man­u­fac­tur­ing and sell­ing Aerial Work Plat­forms for 30 years. The two com­pa­nies have formed a JV named

Ma­cons Socage Plat­forms Pvt. Ltd, ex­clu­sively for the In­dian mar­ket, un­der which, it will man­u­fac­ture in­no­va­tive and tech­ni­cally ad­vanced prod­ucts in In­dia. The im­por­tant thing here is that these ma­chines will be highly af­ford­able as com­pared to the for­eign makes.

“This JV is in line with our ob­jec­tive to cater to the re­quire­ments of the In­dian mar­ket with top-of-the-line, and most cost-ef­fec­tive prod­ucts. This will be our con­tri­bu­tion to the gov­ern­ment’s Make in In­dia cam­paign,” says Dharmesh Sure­lia.

The com­pany will now be able to of­fer a wide spec­trum of aerial plat­forms rang­ing from 12 me­tres to 75 me­tres work­ing height, and they will be de­signed to of­fer a host of ad­van­tages. The aerial plat­forms will be of er­gonomic and com­pact de­sign, light in weight, give high per­for­mance in terms of el­e­va­tion and out­reach, en­able ease of work­ing in cities and crowded ar­eas, have high flex­i­bil­ity, and will be com­pletely hy­draulic with a re­li­able op­er­at­ing sys­tem. Truck Mounted Aerial work­ing plat­forms are es­sen­tial for ap­pli­ca­tion in power trans­mis­sion, main­te­nance of build­ings and struc­tures, land­scap­ing, re­pair and main­te­nance of wind tur­bines, among oth­ers. The first two 24 m DA324 (Dou­ble Ar­tic­u­lated Aerial Plat­forms) has been suc­cess­fully launched.
