From producing new ground for Indian infrastructure to nurturing the earth with harvests of prosperity, from mobilizing the economy on the rail tracks of progress to being its driving force on the highways of the nation, Escorts Limited is transforming lives with the power of technology and imagination. Committed to engineering a better world, the company combines infinite possibilities of human calibre along with innovative engineering solutions. Each and every day it helps fulfill the aspirations of every life it touches.
Possessing technological and business collaboration with world leaders over the years, bearing globally competitive indigenous engineering capabilities, and owning over 1,600 sales and service outlets and footprints in over 40 countries have been contributing to making Escorts a multinational company.
The company operates in three segments, namely, agriculture machinery, construction equipment, and railway equipment. The company’s foray into farm mechanization has helped in transforming the farmland challenges of rural India into yields of opportunity. The company is helping India harden its presence in the agriculture sector and make this core segment one of the strongest contributors to the national economy. The company customizes its products around specific farmer needs. As a result, it is not only enhancing their productivity but also bringing happiness and prosperity to their doorstep.
In the construction equipment segment, Escorts provides equipment for material handling, road building, and earthmoving, addressing the large national opportunity with a comprehensive basket of products. In the railway equipment segment, the company ensures safety, comfort, and reliability to address the growing needs of rail travel in the country. The keynote of its strategy is to have a presence across the rolling stock segments for passenger coaches, locomotives, wagons, EMUs, and metro/MRTS.
India’s agriculture sector has a share of approximately 16 per cent of India’s GDP and employs 43 per cent of its workforce. With increasing farmer education and focus on mechanisation, the sector has seen growth in yield and production over the years. Tractors have historically played a dominant role in farm mechanisation and increasing productivity across the world. Over the decades, India has become the largest producer of tractors in the world and a major exporter, though the domestic industry retains its growth potential with significant headroom. Inter-state differences in mechanisation levels give room of considerable opportunity for growth.
