AJAX plays an important role in building modern India

“With our indigenously manufactured product portfolio and engineering expertise, we are playing an important role in building modern India by catering to the Indian as well as the global market requirements. We are positive that this investment will further strengthen the “Atmanirbhar Bharat” initiative and create employment opportunities in the country.” Jagadish Bhat, MD and CEO, AJAX Engineering.

Innovation and indigenisation has been a way of life at AJAX, and we are proud to be a self-reliant Indian company for the past three decades. Our main focus has been on building for success and building to endure. The foundation has been on making a lean, strongly IT enabled organisation staffed by competent and committed professionals espousing the organisational values. On this foundation, AJAX has built three pillars:

a. Highly-competent design and engineering team that can provide innovative solutions to our customers.
b. Customer reach through well spread network across the country.
c. Best in industry customer support that can reach the customers in shortest possible time

Over the years, AJAX has expanded its product portfolio from self-loading concrete mixer to a complete range of concreting equipment from batching plants to boom pumps to slip-form pavers. AJAX, the world’s largest SLCM manufacturer, has now achieved a milestone of 20,000+ concreting equipment in the market. Currently, AJAX has 35+ dealers and 100+ branch offices pan India to cater to sales and service for the customer. AJAX is also serving the international market through 16+ distributors.

Having pioneered the SLCMs, AJAX has introduced many other innovative products like boom pump, self-propelled boom pump, along with its latest offering, the concrete slip-form paver. All these products stand out in their unique way by offering high end features.

Concrete boom pumps have been revolutionising the construction of large commercial and residential buildings and structures. Due to the shortage of skilled labour and need for a quick placement of concrete in inaccessible areas, use of boom pumps has been necessitated in the current construction processes. AJAX offers truck-mounted boom pump of 30 meters, mounted on a 4x2 chassis with its shorter turning radius that makes them best suitable for RMC plants working in constricted city sites as well as in tight locations.

Keeping pace with the changing requirements of customers, AJAX launched a 25 m self-propelled boom pump (SPBP 25ZX), an Industry first and a patented product. The advanced features of SPBP when compared to boom pump are four wheel drive, three-way steering, 180 degree reversible operator post, shortest turning radius and better gradeability. It is highly reliable to work in extreme slushy and muddy terrains. It also has high power to weight ratio delivering best in class fuel efficiency. Yet another innovative offering from AJAX is its concrete slip-form paver. Today, AJAX is the only Indian company to design and manufacture a fully automatic concrete slip-form paver thereby eliminating the need for customers to import pavers.

From airports to national highways to metro rail and freight corridors, to solar parks and irrigation projects, AJAX has been consistently contributing to infrastructure development, propelling nation’s overall growth. A few of the landmark infrastructure projects where AJAX has been associated with are the world’s largest solar power plant – Bhadla Solar Park, South Asia’s largest aviation hub – IGI Airport, New Delhi, India’s largest metro rail network – Delhi Metro Rail, world’s longest railway platform – Hubballi railway junction, Asia’s longest bi-directional tunnel – Zoji La tunnel project, world’s largest drip irrigation project – Ramthal Marola.

AJAX is committed to “Make in India” philosophy to create innovative solutions as import substitutes for helping build stronger and self-reliant nation. AJAX’s products have been exported to several countries making us a global brand. As India continues to build modern infrastructure, AJAX is equipped with the right set of capabilities to become a market leader in Indian concreting equipment business.

Looking at the increased demand for concreting equipment in India, AJAX has charted an investment of Rs 100 crore to build a new manufacturing facility and design centre in Bengaluru. This greenfield project will be equipped with state-of-the-art facilities to design and manufacture newly-introduced products like the concrete slip-form paver, boom pumps and self-propelled boom pumps. A further investment of Rs 40 crore is being used at Gowribidanur plant to expand its existing facility where batching plants and transit mixers are being produced.

Way forward in another five years, AJAX sees itself emerging as an Indian MNC and becoming one among the top three international players in the concrete equipment space. AJAX is truly an Atmanirbhar Bharat company that strongly believes in the “Made in India; Made for the World” mission.
