Examining the Growth of Construction & Heavy Equipment Demand in India

India is quickly gaining attention as a key player in the global economic landscape. As the country continues to develop and grow, there is a heightening demand for space – leading to increased construction activity. All of this activity requires greater investment in supporting products such as heavy equipment. A quick look at the projections of some research bodies shows a number of trends which will revolutionize construction and equipment in the coming years.

  1. Disposable income has played an important role in the growing demand for high-class bungalows, penthouses, and clubhouses. In order to accommodate families eager to upgrade their current housing situations, residential construction projects are being undertaken. The “Housing for all by 2022” initiative by the government is another game changer that is expected to revamp the landscape. Over the next 5 to 7 years, residential endeavors will account for more than 30% of the total value of the construction industry.

Shaw Development Supports STEM Summer Residency Program

With the skills gap on the minds of most industrial leaders, it’s imperative to get the next generation interested high-tech jobs for the future. For this reason, there’s been a major push throughout the nation to expose more school-age children to Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) subjects. The hope is that by showing them the many options and opportunities that are out there, more kids will become interested in pursuing these subjects later in life as careers.

To promote STEM education here in Florida, Governor Scott recently announced a major investment to create a paid summer residency program for STEM teachers. 45 companies throughout the state have pledged support, including Shaw Development. We’re joining the ranks of well known and respected industrial leaders including Duke Energy, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, Raytheon, and dozens of others in support of this program.

Talent Shortage in Transportation Continues to Cause Concern

For those in the trucking sector – from logistics firms, to truck and part manufacturers – there is a clear challenge when it comes to finding skilled talent.  Demand continues to grow as current drivers and skilled workers near retirement age, while the pool of qualified workers seems to shrink.  It’s not a new trend, nor is it isolated to the transportation industry, but it is becoming more and more pressing as time goes on.

According to an article in Transport Topics, the need for trained engineers, technicians, pipe fitters, and welders continues to grow in all aspects of the trucking industry.  While companies have been making the rounds in large cities to attract and recruit talent, they’re simply unable to find enough people qualified for the jobs available.

Are You Prepared for a Power Outage?

Having back-up power generation is of major importance for numerous industries. There is no time this becomes more obvious than during emergency situations. When power lines are torn down, as often happens in major storms , there is an immediate need for power that is independent from the grid, reliable, and efficient. Diesel generators are perfect for these situations. Diesel generators are the most proven, reliable and durable of all generators. In addition they are also the most efficient – they can generate the same amount of power as other alternative generators while consuming about half of the equivalent fuel required for the same output. This can be a major advantage when more fuel may not be available for days.

Industries That Need Back-Up Generators

Any down time due to lack of power is a loss for a company, however, it can be a potential catastrophe in certain situations. First and foremost on this list is the healthcare industry. Hospitals are required by law to have emergency generators, but other facilities such as doctors’ offices are not, but would still benefit if they did. Having power would enable them to be able to provide uninterrupted services for patients who may not be able to reach a nearby hospital or urgent care center, Continue reading “Are You Prepared for a Power Outage?”
