“We believe RAHSTA is the ideal platform for our presence, and we are confident in our participation in the upcoming expo scheduled for October,” said Anand Sundaresan, Director, Ammann India, while speaking during the launch of a road show - 14th RAHSTA Expo, which will be held from October 9-10, 2024, at Jio Convention Centre, Mumbai. RAHSTA, which stands for Roads and Highways Sustainable Technologies & Advancement, is a dedicated event to the world of road construction equipment, technology, and sustainability.

Sundaresan added, “We predominantly specialise in road construction machinery, such as asphalt plants, concrete batching plants, pavers, and rollers, among others. Additionally, we offer ancillary equipment like supers. With the government placing significant emphasis on infrastructure development, there is a substantial demand for road construction machinery. Particularly noteworthy is the growth witnessed in the last year (2023-2024), with a surge in orders. Moreover, the construction of airports is underway, necessitating equipment for runway construction. We perceive immense potential and opportunity for growth within the industry.”

“The Ministry of Road Transport & Highways has constructed 12,349 km of national highways in 2023-24 - the second highest achievement! In 2020-21 a record 13,327 kms had been constructed, the highest so far. The experience of a well-constructed road is no accident but a badly constructed one can cause many,” stated Pratap Padode, Founder, FIRST Construction Council, a pioneering infrastructure-driven council focused on advancing India's infrastructure development. 

Padode was speaking at the launch of a road show - 14th RAHSTA Expo, which will be held from October 9-10, 2024, at Jio Convention Centre, Mumbai.
