BLAZE TO BRILLANCE
Resulting from years of hard work and perseverance, the brand launched its indigenously manufactured flagship 125 kVA CRDI engine in 2016. India’s first-of-its-kind genset in this range, it is equipped with isochronous governing, offering the best fuel efficiency in the industry, with field tests indicating up to `30 lakh savings in the life cycle of the genset.
Aiming to be one of the top engine manufacturers in the off-highway business and offering ‘Least Cost of Ownership’ products, the TMTL Engines Division saw 30% growth in volumes even in a stagnant market last year. It manufactures world class engines and sells it in the rural space under the brand name Eicher Engines with a dominant market share of 94% in the 12 hp to 46 hp range.
