Dalbir Saini, Managing Director, BD Industries says that the speciality of his company lies in being able to deliver custom-moulded road safety products of any specification within a very short time
What are the special features of your road safety products?
All the products offered by BD Industries (BDI) are a result of continuous research and development over the past 28 years in the field of road safety products. Each product is designed, manufactured and improved based on customer feedback and safety norms in the industry. BDI products are designed keeping in mind the safety of road users including pedestrians. The products do not have sharp edges or corners. They are transport and storage friendly which means many products can be stored in a small space.
Our core competence lies in custom moulding. We can design and produce any new product required by a customer within days. Right from the product design to tool making, production and quality checking, everything is carried out in-house, under one roof. This eliminates third-party reliability risk. Our state-of-the-art CAD/ CAM stations and CNC machines, coupled with three decades of experience, give us the edge in the industry.
What kind of infrastructure facilities do you have for manufacturing quality products?
All facilities required to make quality products are available at BDI under one roof. These include a design centre and a complete computer aided tooling centre backed by CNC machines. Besides these, we also have machinery for extrusion, compounding and pulverising of material before taking it into production. For testing the raw materials and our manufactured products we have a state-of-the-art fully equipped testing laboratory. BDI Group is an ISO 9001:2008 certified organisation with manufacturing plants across India. Shortly, we will be getting TS16949 certification from TUV Rheinland, Germany as a mark of the quality of our products. TS16949 applies to the design, development and production of automotive-related products. We supply high quality products to automotive, healthcare, material handling and other industries.
What are the advantages of the rotomoulded products that you manufacture?
The rotomoulded products are absolutely maintenance free with excellent strength-to-weight ratio. They are very easy to install and can be easily moved around at work sites. The products are stackable due to which many products can be transported/ stored in a small space. Being corrosion and rust-free, they are tough and durable. Most products are recyclable and are available in a choice of attractive colours.
How do you keep up with the latest technical and commercial developments in road safety and other fields?
BDI is an active member of Association of Rotational Moulders (USA) and Society of Asian Rotomoulders (StAR). We attend most regional and international conferences of these organisations to keep abreast of the latest trends and developments in the industry. These meetings offer an excellent chance to meet the suppliers and learn about latest materials offered in the market. Also, BDI’s team has been instrumental in launching new products most of which are new to the Indian road safety industry.
