Caterpillar has awarded BKT's Bhuj plant SQEP (Supplier Quality Excellence Process) Gold certification, an acknowledgement reserved for suppliers who have stood out during the year for achieving the highest levels in terms of quality and control over processes.

Opened in 2015, Bhuj is one of the group's most innovative factories: an autonomous, cutting-edge plant in terms both of its manufacturing assets and its infrastructure to support its employees.

Here the radial tires of the EARTHMAX range for CAT vehicles are made. Specifically, they are tires designed to facilitate better ground load distribution for dump trucks, wheel loaders, dozers, graders and some multi-purpose vehicles. In addition, the tires in the EARTHMAX range guarantee resistance for the casing of these products and better distribution of ground loads.

The SQEP Gold certification obtained by BKT is confirmation of the successful collaboration between Caterpillar and BKT, which lays the basis for stronger synergies and partnerships in the future.

"This certification really means a great deal to BKT," says Arvind Poddar, Chairman and Managing Director of BKT. "We are proud of receiving this prestigious recognition from Caterpillar and we hope in future years not only to maintain our high standards and performance with our customers, but to even go further by continuously improving. BKT's journey is one marked by continuous evolution and development."
