Hitex International Group, a UK global provider of road safety and surfacing solutions, has partnered with Trans Metalite India, a New Delhi-based supplier of highway infrastructure solutions.
“Metalite Hitex Group has been formed to meet the often complex difficulties facing India’s highway infrastructure network,” said Finn Goff, group commercial director at Hitex International Group. “Together we will focus on developing cost effective Indian solutions to Indian problems rather than trying to implement products or systems designed for the European market and infrastructure needs.”
The Metalite Hitex Group will offer a wide range of safety and marking products and services specifically for Indian highways construction and maintenance industries. To do this, Metalite Hitex Group has opened a new manufacturing plant at Bawal in Haryana, about 100km from the capital New Delhi. Products will include new crack, joint and pothole repairs, anti-skid treatments and high quality thermoplastic road markings.
Vikas Jalan, managing director of Trans Metalite India, said there “is great synergy between our two companies with the complementary services we can jointly offer the highways sector”.
