Excon 2019 was quite rewarding in terms of communicating with customers. We were able to showcase our wide range of solutions to a global audience. At Excon, we exhibited COMBAT-120, one of the most distinctive asphalt plants in the Indian market.

In comparison to the growth levels the industry witnessed in 2018, there has been a slowdown. Product sales has taken a hit leading to a loss of revenue. The government needs to reinvigorate the market and ensure that the downward spiral is arrested.
