Chandrapur is in the heart of a stone crusher belt and has a large backhoe population of around 300, comprising various brands. Gmmco’s training center would help people of the area to train themselves in the operation of a typical backhoe loader, allowing them to seek employment within the area itself.
The training center was inaugurated by Mr. Rinku Agarwal, Director, Maa Nathadahi Stonecrushers, who operate two Cat® 424 backhoe loaders in the area. In his speech at the event, Mr. Agarwal appreciated Gmmcoâ€™s initiative and said that this center will develop a pool of trained operators who could be absorbed easily by industries therein. The operator training program â€“ a first in the location â€“ was received with enthusiasm among the local youth.
In the first batch of training, 16 local individuals registered themselves. Gmmco has arranged for the training venue, one Cat® 424B backhoe loader and a CDI operator for the purpose of this training.
