German’s Schwing Stetter with a rich history for over 88 years, and as the world’s leader for concrete construction machines, has located its wholly-owned subsidiary Schwing Stetter India (Pvt) Ltd in Chennai.

Commenting on introducing this machine to the local market, Kasun Wickramaratne, National Sales Manager, Schwing Stetter India (Pvt) Ltd said, “Ideal Motors is undoubtedly the superior choice when selecting after-sales service for vehicles in Sri Lanka. Their customer service is matchless. As both our organizations are attuned to support customers, Ideal Motors is the best suited local authorized dealer for the Schwing Stetter Self Loading Mixer.”

Top construction firms such as ELS Construction, NEM Construction, Tokyo Super Mix (Pvt) Ltd use the Schwing Stetter Self Loading Mixer. Since being appointed the local authorized dealer, Ideal Motors (Pvt) Ltd has concluded a successful sale of the Self Loading Mixer to Sri Ram Construction.

The Self-Loading Mixer is an off-highway, rough terrain machine which can be easily operated, and is able to transport mixture with minimal costs. The novelty of the Self-loading Mixers is that within the vehicle it can automatically mix the concrete. Especially, in rural villages, for the development of smaller roads, the equipment is able to play a vital role.

Through an automatic system, the machine blends water, cement and stones to create the concrete and impressively is able to provide a valid receipt to the customer on the quantities of sand, stones and water used to manufacture the cement.

Ideal Motors is deeply committed in supporting this sector and helping organizations involved in construction to achieve every success. Ideal Motors aims to unveil other new products to the market shortly. We have realized that many organizations have become ineffective in introducing products as they are unable to maintain the equipment and support clients through after sales requirements, negatively impacting customer businesses. However I am pleased to note that we at Ideal Motors, have already made the necessary arrangements to offer superlative after-sales service for the equipment we market. Moreover, customers will be able to maintain their equipment with minimum cost, time, effort and a reduced workforce thus achieving every success within the industry. This was revealed based on a recent survey we conducted among customers in the sector who seek quality vehicle accessories and machinery. Our decision to obtain authorized dealership status from Schwing Stetter India (Pvt) Ltd, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the renowned German group, Schwing Stetter, is due to these reasons,” Tennekoon added.
