At the recently concluded Terminal Operator Excellence Awards 2016 in Dubai, Balkrishna Industries Ltd. (BKT) was awarded the “Port Tyre Manufacturer of the Year” award for port and terminal cargo handling equipment.
The award was based on various parameters including technological innovation, product performance, durability, sustainable manufacturing and ease of recycling.
The Terminal Operator team visited BKT’s new production site at Bhuj and rated the plant as the best with a high level of process automation and strict adherence to process control.
BKT supplies port application tyres to most of the major terminal operators in the Middle East region. The performance of the BKT tyres was among the best, both in terms of hourly costs and total service hours.
As a pioneer in the field of OTR radials in India, BKT has also successfully launched its new range of radial port tyres: Portmax PM 90 for reach stackers, Portmax PM 93 for straddle carriers and Liftmax LM 81 for forklifts.
In addition, BKT will be shortly launching its radial tyre range for terminal tractor applications.
