Schwing Stetter India, one of the country’s leading concreting equipment manufacturers, has launched XCMG’s two new hydraulic excavators and wheel loaders in the XCMG Coimbatore dealership office.

With the marked increase in infrastructure projects, there is a consistent demand for hydraulic excavators and wheel loaders in India. XCMG, the third largest construction machinery company in the world, has developed four machines with unique specialities.

By launching the machines in Coimbatore, Schwing Stetter India is targeting growing demand for quarry machines in the city as well as the state of Tamil Nadu. The machines have undergone several extensive trials to meet the industry requirements of smart, efficient products.

Two hydraulic excavators have been launched— XE215i-K LC 25T and XE140i-K HD 14T. While the HEX XE215i-K LC has nine rollers and a longer track for best grip, the HEX XE140i-K HD is a new-generation 14T machine specially made for quarry usage and also faster.

Two wheel loaders – ZL33FV 3.3T and ZL55GV 5.5T – have also been launched. The ZL33FV is a modern age 3.3T BS4 machine with heavier payload than the previous generation 3T wheel loader. The ZL55GV is the latest CEV Stage 4 wheel loader, which delivers powerful performance with enhanced payload capacity. This is also specially made for quarry and mining applications.

V G Sakthikumar, Managing Director of Schwing Stetter India said, "We are happy to be launching the excavators here at XCMG Coimbatore through the dealership office. We, at Schwing Stetter India, are delighted to be launching our products here, because Coimbatore as a market has been important for us since inception. By taking more collaborative efforts with our dealers, we hope to further amplify our product launches across the country."

The company is actively building strategies to build market presence as it gears up for increased business opportunities that the current quarry space holds. With the new launch, Schwing Stetter India plans to increase its share of the XCMG hydraulic excavator and wheel loader market in India and extend its reach to markets in India.

Set up in June 1998, and commencing its manufacturing operations in 1999, Schwing Stetter India is a 100% subsidiary of Schwing GmbH, a US$1.30 billion German concreting machinery manufacturer and a part of the XCMG group. The company manufactures concrete batching plants, concrete placing booms, concrete pumps, concrete truck mixers for transporting readymade concrete to construction sites, concrete truck mixers with concrete pumps, and concrete recycling plants, plastering pumps, self-loading mixers, and sludge pumps.
