Scania is moving forward in India

Scania exhibited its latest Scania P 380 8×4 heavy-duty mining truck at this year’s Excon construction equipment exhibition in Bangalore.

Scania’s heavy-duty mining tipper model P 380 was first launched in the Indian market in 2007 together with Larsen & Toubro (L&T), an global technology, engineering, construction and manufacturing company. Ever since, more than 600 P 380 mining trucks have been supplied to local customers in the construction and mining sectors.

Based on that sucess, Scania now sees other openings in the on-road segment for buses and coaches and for heavy transport services as well and has formed a local subsidiary – Scania Commercial Vehicles India – to market Scania trucks, buses and engines in India.

To shorten the lead times to the customers, Scania Commercial Vehicles India is now in the process of establishing an assembly unit in Bangalore.
According to Scania, the company's presence on the subcontinent not only complements L&T’s product range in the construction and mining sectors, but will also provide its local clienetle with a larger range of models, shorter delivery times and enhanced service support.

Excon is Asia’s third largest exhibition for construction equipment and is therefore an important event to reach target groups within Asia's mining and construction segment. This year, about 30,000 people visited the exhibition for business purposes.
