Many Indian manufacturers of concrete products are investing in foreign machinery as they move toward automation and mechanized production. Ecologic Building Systems set up a plant in 2010 "with state-of-the-art fully automated German technology to manufacture concrete products. We have an installed capacity of 60,000 concrete blocks and up to 600,000 units of bricks/pavers a day," said Director of Marketing Rajinder Singh. India has about 35 brick-making plants.
