Machines and the science behind them have evolved over centuries. Each era is distinctly defined by the invention of its machines and tools. Be it the crude hammerstone of the palaeolithic age or the modern-day robotics; machines and tools used have only advanced over centauries for enabling structures that can be delivered faster, better and with utmost precision.
Construction industry has witnessed a paradigm shift. Especially the roofing industry. With research, technical ability and creative thinking; architects today defy convention while designing structures. They are willing to experiment. Modern machinery for manufacturing innovative roofing solutions and their installation using hi-tech tools have made it possible to revolutionize design thinking. There is substantial pull for advanced technologies mainly due to dissatisfaction experienced in the existing traditional solutions. Customers today seek complete value for money with maximum returns. Product superiority can be achieved through world class manufacturing set-up, quality tools and well-trained manpower that promise both finish and safety. Hence, there has been a tectonic shift in the manufacturing processes with in the roofing industry, primarily to cope up with the latest trends, consumer demands for quality standards, higher aesthetics, faster deliveries to name a few.
