Kannur, located at the Northern part of Kerala is one of the high density pockets for the BHL industry. The machines are put to use in the Laterite mining application and the CAT 424B emerged as the most preferred machine amongst all competition in this rugged application. The proven product from the CAT stable and the Product Support rendered by Gmmco triggered a rapid rise in the growth of our machine population in this area. This called for a modern state of the art facility to cater to the need of the increasing machine population.
