Speaking on the current scenario of concrete equipment market in India, Wilfried Theissen, Managing Director, Putzmeister India, said, “In the first quarter of CY2021, the demand for concrete equipment had grown back to 2019 levels for most equipment categories. However, with Covid-19 cases spiralling in the country and local lockdowns introduced to curb the spread, things are set to slow down again. The reverse migration of labour in anticipation of a complete lockdown is only going to add to challenges at the construction site and impact demand for new equipment.”
“India is an important market for the Putzmeister Group and this will continue to be the case in the future. Our dedicated team of engineers and technicians are constantly working on ways to help our customers get the most of their equipment and deliver projects reliably, efficiently, and safely,” he added.
