AMW to expand operations in the East Sees strong potential in coal belt region

23 August 2012

AMW (Asia MotorWorks), India's third largest HCV manufacturer, is sparing no effort to increase its network and product range in the eastern region of India. AMW believes that the development of this region, which has some of the largest coal reserves in the country, as well as the increased generation of hydroelectric power, bode well for its range of tippers in the Medium and Heavy vehicle segment.

The company has emerged as the first choice among Tipper buyers since its models offer the highest Return on Investment compared to competition. AMW is also the second largest player in the overall Tipper market, with a share of over 25%, placing it ahead of Ashok Leyland. It may be noteworthy that the eastern region is among the largest markets for tippers and AMW's products focus on tippers for a wide variety of applications. A catalyst for this growth has been the increase in demand for AMW Tippers from retail buyers who own between one and five trucks.

The most popular AMW Tipper models are the 2518 TP, in both 14 cu.m. and 16 cu.m. variants, and the 2523 TP.Our 3118 TP is also gaining popularity; with stricter enforcement on overloading, the demand for this model is likely to go up.

The most popular applications for AMW Tipper models are in the construction, mining and infrastructure sectors. AMW tipper models are part of several prestigious projects such as the Teesta Project, NHAI Projects and the Yamuna Expressway. The Company has already made a foray in markets in West Bengal, Jharkhand, Balasore and Barbil.

The increase in AMW service centresand dealerships has increased customer confidence and contributed to high up time of these vehicles. This has also helped boost the company's presence in remote areas in the Eastern and North Eastern states.
