Leading quarry operator places trust in Chicago Pneumatic


International construction equipment manufacturer Chicago Pneumatic has, for over eight years, been playing a major role in helping one of India’s leading producers of manufacturing and plastering sand, Matha Granites, expand its quarrying operations in India’s Kerala district.

Thanks to the high reliability of its hydraulic breakers and portable compressors and an outstanding after sales service, Chicago Pneumatic has been able to build a solid relationship with the company, gaining an excellent reputation across the region in the process.

Established in 1988, Matha Granites has considerably developed and expanded over the years. The company has recently mechanised its quarring operations by introducing breakers, excavators and sand making machines and opened a further quarry in the Kuruppampady – Perumbavoor region.
Matha Granites’ successful relationship with Chicago Pneumatic began in 2005, when the company purchased its first CP1150 hydraulic breaker. With over 8,000 hours of reliable service, the breaker proved a great fit for the company, paving the way for the purchase of other Chicago Pneumatic products. “Ever since we bought the CP1150, which was our first breaker, we’ve had a close and very productive relationship with Chicago Pneumatic,” said Mr Pauly, Engineering Manager at Matha Granites in Kerala. “Over the years, we’ve bought a lot of our key equipment from Chicago Pneumatic and have always been extremely happy with the quality of the products and after sales support provided. ”

As one of the first CP hydraulic breakers to be operate in India, the CP1150 was a real breakthrough for Chicago Pneumatic and helped the brand gain an excellent reputation across the Kerala quarrying industry. Thanks to its successful relationship with Chicago Pneumatic, Matha Granites has been instrumental in providing positive references for the brand and its product performance across the region. As Mr Pauly explained, “We have no hesitation in ordering Chicago Pneumatic products, especially when Chicago Pneumatic told us that all the machines supplied in India are upgraded to suit the tough operating conditions that are so common in our country.” As a result of its excellent relationship with the company, Chicago Pneumatic received a perfect 10 customer rating (NPS) from Matha Granites in the year 2012/2013.
In 2007, Matha Granites acquired a CPS325 air compressor, which was followed by a CPS400 air compressor four years later. In addition, it has recently purchased a model from the Chicago Pneumatic range of RX medium size hydraulic breakers, which has proven an ideal match for the company’s requirements. With a novel design featuring only two moving parts, RX breakers ensure easy maintenance, long service life and quiet operation. Other key features of RX breakers include hybrid technology, that ensures optimum energy transmission from the piston to the working tool, a power booster, that harnesses recoil energy to enhance percussive performance, and a breaker box guiding system that minimises recoil forces so that there is less strain on the carrier, operator and breaker.
