Japanese construction equipment major Kobelco has launched the new generation mining excavator models SK220XD/SK220XDLC in the 20-24 ton segment.
Speaking on the occasion, Yutaka (Mike) Goto, Managing Director & CEO of Kobelco Construction Equipment India, said, “From the first day Kobelco started operations in India 10 years ago, we continue to provide innovative solutions to customers based on their feedback. The new models spread the message ‘Power meets efficiency.”
He said the 2000 units per annum manufacturing plant set up at Sri City is operating at near full capacity meeting domestic requirement mainly and some exports. We are now in the process of further enhancing the production by internal efficiencies.
Vikram Sharma, Advisor and former MD of Kobelco in India, said, “With the manufacturing capacity almost hitting its upper limit, we are currently in the process of further improving productivity within the existing plant. Once this is completed, we will then take up new expansion.”
