To this, he added, 'We will be the first company to have a fully-automated foundry line in the country. Our foundry lines are of international standards, wherein the casting of wheels is done in automated "Tilt Gravity" die-casting machines to make consistent and better quality wheels. Further, our first-in-class processes like "Flow Forging" lend our products extra strength. Another industry-first process at our factory is the introduction of Element Painting (EP) which makes our products distinct and unique...Our CoE (Center of Excellence) will conform to BIS/ISO standards and, most importantly, one of our USPs will be the in-house Tool Design and Development that would allow us to deliver all kinds of designs and sizes for wheels with great speed.'

Mr Sukhbir Singh, Founder & Director, Advantec Wheels, concluded by saying, 'We are embarking on a mission to leverage our five decades' expertise in the automobile wheel domain to bring value to our customers.'
