Caterpillar has recognized BKT's plant in Bhuj, India, for "achieving the highest levels in terms of quality and control over processes." The plant manufactures OTR tires for Caterpillar machinery.

Caterpillar has awarded Balkrishna Industries Ltd.'s (BKT) plant in Bhuj, India, with its Supplier Quality Excellence Process Gold certification," an important acknowledgement reserved for suppliers who have stood out during the year for achieving the highest levels in terms of quality and control over processes," according to BKT officials.

The award is "a great success for the Bhuj production site, already BKT's flagship."

The plant manufactures BKT's Earthmax line of OTR tires. The tires are designed "to facilitate better ground load distribution for dump trucks, wheel loaders, dozers, graders and some multi-purpose vehicles. In addition, the tires in the Earthmax range stand out for their all-steel structure, which guarantees resistance for the casing of these products and better distribution of ground loads."

“This certification really means a great deal to BKT," says Arvind Poddar, the company's chairman and managing director.

"We are proud of receiving this prestigious recognition from Caterpillar and we hope in future years to not only maintain our high standards and performance with our customers, but to even go further by continuously improving. BKT's journey is one marked by continuous evolution and development.”
