  • BEML gets ready for equipment biz foray

Bharat Earth Movers (BEML) is planning to foray into mining, oil drilling and power equipment businesses and hence is in the process of incorporating a subsidiary MAMC Industries in association with the Coal India (CIL) and Damodar Valley Corporation (DVC).

BEML would have a 48% stake and a 50% voting rights in the new joint venture with CIL and DVC holding the remaining interests. BEML will leverage the assets, technology and expertise of the recently acquired company, Mining and Allied Machines Corporation (MAMC), in the new business. MAMC was recently acquired by BEML-led consortium for Rs 100 crore. Other members of the consortium are CIL and DVC.

According to analysts, entry into a new business would help BEML to compensate for the recent setback it suffered in the metro car business from new entrants like Alstom. BEML had reportedly lost the order from the Chennai Metro Rail project to this new entrants.
