Marketing co-operation to provide comprehensive solutions for the manufactured sand market in India
METSO (India) Pvt Ltd and CDE Asia Ltd have agreed on marketing co-operation in order to provide comprehensive manufactured sand solutions for customers in India.
Under the terms of the agreement, Metso’s scope covers crushing and screening technology, while CDE Asia will provide the wet classification equipment required in the manufactured sand production process.
Metso say the agreement is in line with their strategy to strengthen the company’s capabilities by extending its portfolio, in co-operation with strong partners around the world, to offer comprehensive, high-quality, end-to-end solutions for important market segments such as manufactured sand.
‘As one of the leading providers of equipment and services for the mining and aggregates industries, we always aim to provide the best solutions for our customers – solutions that are not only qualitative and efficient in terms of profitability, but also environmentally sustainable,’ said Kamal Pahuja, vice-president of mining and aggregates with Metso (India).
‘This new marketing co-operation agreement allows customers to acquire the whole process easily, and at the same time forms a good platform for future growth for both Metso and CDE Asia in India.’
Manish Bhartia, managing director of CDE Asia, commented: ‘The co-operation agreement with Metso presents new opportunities for both organizations and has been well received by our customers.
‘The combination of Metso’s and CDE Asia’s sustainable technologies produces well-shaped, washed and graded manufactured sand, helping to replace natural sand which is fast becoming scarce and expensive.
‘By utilizing what are normally low-value crusher fines for sand production, we can extend the life of natural resources and also add huge commercial value to our customers’ enterprises.’
The co-operation agreement between Metso and CDE Asia is restricted solely to the marketing and development of common offerings for the manufactured sand market through pooling of the companies’ relevant expertise and knowledge.
Both parties will continue to negotiate and sign the terms of contracts independently with end customers, representing their respective companies only.
