"We are delighted that our construction and mining machinery business has been fulfilling the formidable needs of mining and construction sectors with innovative equipment and commendable service records for the last 75 years," he added.

Expressing his delight over the glorious journey of CMB, Arvind K Garg, Executive Vice-President, L&T Construction and Mining Machinery, said, "It has been our absolute commitment to serve valued customers over the last seven decades. L&T has pioneered and introduced global technologies, equipment, and practices for the development of the nation. At this important juncture, we thank our customers for their association and patronage." L&T utilised its deep knowledge and experience since 1945 and developed its own 'Make in India' road machinery comprising vibratory compactors and wheel loaders. These indigenously designed and manufactured machines are now aiding road construction and highway development and enabling L&T to move towards fulfilling the national mission of 'Aatmanirbhar Bharat.'
