Strata Geosystems, a joint venture of Glen Raven, headquartered in Mumbai, and a leading specialist in the soil reinforcement industry, has opened a new state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Daheli, Gujarat, recently, to meet the growing demand for geotechnical products in India and around the globe.
“We are indeed a truly unique company,” said Ashok Bhawnani, Founding Director of Strata Geosystems, during the grand opening ceremony of the company’s new manufacturing facility located in Daheli, Gujarat. “As the largest reinforced soil wall builder in India, we differentiate ourselves by using re-engineered yarn to build high-performance structures for highways.”
Strata began as a manufacturer of geogrids in 2004 and has evolved to become both a manufacturer and India's largest developer for reinforced soil structures. Today, Strata has built over 400 bridge ramps on national highways across the country and is a leader in the technical textiles industry. Reinforced soil technology has been adapted across the country, which led the company to expand its capacity and more effectively cater to the growing infrastructure needs in India.
“Using geogrids to reinforce soil is analogous to using steel for concrete reinforcement, and this technology is being used for a wide range of applications including ramp construction, landfills, mining dykes, and other engineered structures,” said Narendra Dalmia, CEO and Director.
The plant was constructed using Strata’s own technical textiles for flooring, internal roads, water-proofing, slopes and embankments, and loading aprons, providing a testament to the products’ benefits.
