BKT Proving a Game Changer Once Again with Bhuj Plant
The Off-Highway tire manufacturing giant, BKT once again proving itself a game changer in the market with its new tire producing plant at Bhuj, set up a milestone in its tire manufacturing history. Within a span of just four years from the ground breaking, the corporate giant's most modern plant reached its daily production of tires to 100 MT tires in March 2015.
“At the beginning of this decade, BKT defined its vision with a strategic objective of achieving the leadership in the Off-Highway tire market worldwide”.said Rajiv Poddar, the joint managing director, BKT.
Feeling the need for a new plant to achieve this ambitious goal the BKT, which has full fledged plants at Aurangabad, Chopanki, Dombivali and Bhiwadi, focused itself on the vibrant state of Gujarat and set up its over $500 billion state of the art plant at Bhuj, Kutch, with a foresight on having the capabilities of producing more than 140,000 MT tires and exporting them from the nearest port, Mundra.
BKT - SUCCESS IS HABIT
The 60 year old company founded in 1954 by Mahabir Prasad Poddar, started its production of bicycle tires, diversifying into a new direction from their well established textile business. In 1987, the successful company entered into its tire production for two and three wheeler vehicles. In 1994, spotting an immense market in the not so occupied segment of Off-highway tire industry, entered into it, capturing international market, first in Europe and then in the US.
In the year 2004, the BKT entered into manufacturing tires for agricultural equipments like tractors. The company saw a breakthrough in 2007, when it launched their Agrimax Force tires, the most advanced 'IF Technology' tires, for high powered tractors. The BKT stands proud today with its tire production ranging over 230 sizes and also being the leading manufacturer of Agri Radial tires across the globe.
“For that it was necessary that in addition to the production area, we should have a state-of-the-art R&D center, along with a modern outdoor testing track, large warehouses for tire storage, as well as additional facilities for housing our team including recreational spaces” Poddar said....
