Pune, 7th February, 2019: Dynapac India unveiled its new manufacturing facility in Pune for its road construction equipment, inaugurated by Jean-Claude Fayat, President and CEO, Fayat Group. The plant located at Pulgaon, Pune has a production capacity in the range of 1,200-1,500 units. With the new plant, Dynapac aims to boost up the sales in the market. In 2018, the brand manufactured 750 units in India. Currently Dynapac has a market share between 12-15 per cent in the sector.
With 10 years of experience in manufacturing in India, it moves to a new integrated facility with increased production capacity that will strengthen the group presence in India. This move by Dynapac offers its customer base the strength of new technology that will make them more competitive in the growing road market in India.
“This investment is a great opportunity for the Fayat Group and its customers, as Dynapac is a key player in the road construction equipment market with a highly recognised brand. Dynapac has an excellent strategic place in our group and we plan on growing and expanding its presence and product offering. We will leverage its expertise and technologies together with our existing portfolio to continuously develop equipment that closely addresses our customers’ needs”, said Jean-Claude Fayat.
Under the Fayat umbrella, Dynapac has continued to operate as an autonomous manufacturer providing its customers with state-of-the-art technology. The new Pune facility spans over 5.5 acre of land boasting a strength of about 100 employees. In India, Dynapac offers product design and development with competence centre, along with both local sourcing and support of global sourcing teams. It has also established a distribution centre with sales and service support.
Both soil compactors and asphalt rollers are produced at the Pune factory. The soil compactors are between 10-12 tonne and will serve both the Indian market as well as exports. The double drum asphalt rollers will be built in two segments: one small tandem roller of 1.6 tonne and one segment including rollers between 7-9 tonne. Like the soil compactors, these are both for the local market as well as for other markets.
