The forthcoming West African Mining and Power Exhibition (WAMPEX) in Accra will host a large contingent of Indian companies, including construction machinery specialist Delco Automotive India. WAMPEX takes place from 28 to 30 May at Accra Convention Centre in Accra, Ghana.

Delco Automotive India plans to showcase the range of Indian-manufactured light construction and road building machinery, concrete processing equipment, material-handling equipment and accessories, and earth moving equipment.

The company’s vice president of business development, Lalit Kumar Loothra, says the range of products to be shown at WAMPEX is well known for its high performance, ruggedness and extended service life.

“This equipment is robust and versatile and can be used optimally across a variety of industrial applications such as steel and engineering, automotive and electronics,” says Loothra. “Our construction machinery encompasses concrete, asphalt, compaction, paving and excavation applications. We have already exported our range of equipment to some East African countries including Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania, and over the past year we supplied 30 units of our backhoe loaders and excavators to customers in Turkmenistan.”

Delco Automotive India was invited to take part in WAMPEX by the Confederation of India Industry (CII), a non-government, industry-led organisation that provides advisory and consultative processes to promote an environment for development in India.

“The CII approached us to participate in WAMPEX; we immediately decided it was an excellent opportunity to further explore the opportunities in the West African market, and signed up for the show,” concludes Loothra.

The 11th edition of WAMPEX takes place at Accra Convention Centre in Ghana from 28 to 30 May 2014.
