Chinese firm & JCBL pact on luxury buses
Chandigarh, March 18

New hi-tech luxury buses will soon hit Indian roads, courtesy the joint venture between the Chinese automobile giant King Long and JCBL Limited, Indian mobility solutions Provider Company. The initial investment during the first phase will be Rs 12 crore and manufacturing plant will be set up in Lalru within six months, said Mr Zhang Yan, Overseas Enterprise General Manager, King Long, while talking to TNS here today. The company looks upon India as a big potential market for luxury coaches. "This technological tie-up will provide us an opportunity to venture and consolidate our position in the Indian market", he said. While this is the first ever overseas venture by King Long, the company has opted for the Indian market owing to increasing road traffic by almost 15 per cent annually and the efforts of the two governments towards infrastructural improvement, said Mr Yan. The luxury buses that will be high-speed buses, 11-metre long which include features like electric doors, safety equipment, highly efficient engine, interior lighting, audio-visual systems, etc., will cost Rs 35 lakh. To be built on domestically made bus chassis, the emission standards will be Euro-III compliant. Mr Vivek Datta from JCBL said the company has high expectations from the tie-up. "We originally started as a company to manufacture bus and cargo boxes for Swaraj Mazda but with the liberalisation of Indian economy and the increasing awareness among travelers, JCBL would now focus on modern luxury coaches with the state-of-the-art technology from King Long.

JBCL to set up manufacturing unit in city
Lalru, October 16

JCBL, the youngest and the fastest growing bus and coach body builders in the country, is all set to have yet another plant at its premises at Lalru to tap the growing market for integral coaches. The foundation stone for the third manufacturing unit was laid at its existing location here yesterday by Mr Kighar Chang of Xiamen King Long United automotive industry Company Limited. The Director of JCBL Ltd, Mr Rishi Aggarwal, said the new plant spread over 5,000 square feet would be an assembly line exclusively for the super luxury King long coaches. "It would entail an investment of Rs 6 crore and would be ready in the next six months taking the turnover up by Rs 100 crore,'' he added. As of now, the company manufactures 350 bus bodies per month, including, those for Swaraj Mazda and Telco. This, he said would go up to 750 bus bodies in the next two years. Talking about their foray into the super luxury coach manufacturing segment and expansion plans he said, "we have the expertise, the technology and the capacity.'' Once operational, it will enhance the manufacturing capacity by 100 buses per month. Focusing intensively on design, JCBL builds buses picking up the best aggregates. For instance it uses King Long of China's pneumatic suspensions, Cummins of USA's engines, Holland Neway of US suspensions, ZF Germany for gearboxes. "It is the design of our buses that sets us apart from our competitors in the market,'' he adds while explaining that "we pick up the best aggregates from other countries in terms of global technology and concepts and make prototypes of the same before undertaking commercial production of the same.''. It's latest offering is the "all glass'' bus, which will be used to ferry Guru Granth Sahib in a golden palanquin from Bangla Sahib Gurdwara to Janam Asthan Nankana Sahib Gurdwara in Pakistan. With elegant interiors, wooden furnishings and PVC vinyl flooring, the bus is also equipped with music system, folding TV, besides a public address system and an intercom facility. Interestingly, the exterior of the bus also provides two donation boxes to enable people to put their money offerings at the time of paying obeisance. The bus yesterday left for Tarn taran for palanquin installation and would be handed over the Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee in the next two days after giving it the final finishing touches.

Chinese buses by November
Lalru, October 19

JCBL Ltd that manufactures bus bodies here for Swaraj Mazda and other manufacturers is set to launch luxury buses by next month using Chinese chassis with rear engines in the domestic market. It has entered into a tie-up with Chinese manufacturer King Long, and is awaiting clearance from the Automobile Research Association of India (AARI), Pune, to launch the buses. Mr Rishi Aggarwal, Director, JCBL Ltd, said the company started with a capital investment of Rs 4 crore in early 90s, and had registered an annual turnover of Rs 48 crore last year. It had emerged as a market leader in the organised sector in the manufacture of bus bodies and cargo boxes. It manufactured 1500 buses every year. King Long is rated as the biggest Asian bus manufacturer with an annual supply of over 10,000 buses. He said these buses would have more power, greater comfort and quieter operation. The buses would be priced at a much lower price than other imported buses and their Indian counterparts. Mr Aggarwal said the domestic market was of around 20,000 buses, and was growing at a rate of over 20 per cent. However, it was unfortunate that so far Indian manufacturers had been producing the same chassis for trucks and buses. The new buses would be manufactured keeping in view the Indian road conditions.
