The word of mouth carried by the brand is so strong that we knew if we were to buy a Concrete Block Machine ever, it would definitely be Columbia and nothing else. We bought first SPM20 in 2008 and since then there has been no looking back. My company’s entire scenario has changed since then. From producing 30,000 pavers per day to 1,50,000 today, we have come a long way only because of Columbia’s Concrete Block Machine. I would always suggest everyone instead of buying only the Concrete Block Machine, get the whole plant from Batching Plant to Off Bearer from Columbia. The machine will earn money for you only in few months. This is the only decision we regret till today is not taking the entire plant from Columbia.

While buying first machine Concrete Block Machine, we always wanted a brand which had pan India presence, a known brand which produced good quality products. Columbia fitted into our requirement so well. We supplied heavy duty pavers manufactured on Columbia machine at various projects in Maharashtra and they worked very well there without any breakage, abrasion or chipping. You know when the product is good, the machinery is good.

Columbia became our sole reason for success, as our products got accepted for various projects of JNPT, CIDCO and others when compared with other German and Chinese brands. The 120mm paver blocks made from Columbia Machine got widely used in container yards, ports and other heavy-duty applications and lasted for more than 6 years without any maintenance. I have seen so many of my peers who had gone for cheaper machines only to save few lakhs have regretted later and sold off their plant in mere 2 years-time as they could not withstand maintenance and production cost associated with the machine. We are glad we made a right decision in buying a Columbia Concrete Block Machine at the right time. Impeccable product quality, superior machine performance, low maintenance, high product rate and unmatched product finish are just few of the USPs of a Columbia Machine when compared to any other machine in the market.

Columbia Machine SPM20 made idealistic figures of 28,100 nos. of M50 grade paver size 100x100x200mm possible in 12 hours shift. Columbia Machines are so user friendly and easy to operate that anybody with good training can successfully handle the machine. Now, we have come to a stage where our customers demand products made out of Columbia Machines, which gives us edge over our competition. We are proud owners of 3 Columbia Machines.

I came across Columbia at the Excon 2009, when I was just making up my mind to buy a Concrete Block Machine. Though I had done lot of research and met various contractors in Gujarat, Maharashtra and Karnataka, but meeting Mr. Soji was the turning point. He motivated me and boosted the confidence in me to invest in a Columbia Machine. One correct decision made at the correct time resulted in buying 3 more Columbia Concrete Block Machines.

Columbia Machine has been a big part of my success story. When I bought first machine, at that time and at that rate there was no other Concrete Block Machine in the market that could match Columbia. I was able to achieve strength that I wanted and it lived upto my expectation. That encouraged me to buy 3 more Concrete Block Machine from Columbia. I could run the plant 24x7 and recover my entire amount invested in just 1 year through Columbia Machine.

Before buying 1st Block Machine, we did a lot of market research and analysis. We visited two of Columbia’s plants at different locations in India and spoke to many of their customers, the feedback we received was very positive. We saw sharp difference between other block machines and Columbia’s SPM20 too. After lot of thought process, we finalized on buying Columbia’ Concrete Block Machine SPM 20. We again bought second machine from Columbia in 2014 and currently in the process of setting up the 3rd Columbia plant very soon.

Performance of the machine, quality of product produced and several installations of Columbia machines pan India were deciding factors for buying the 1st Columbia Concrete Block Machine. After-sales service also has helped to strengthen our decision. Our overall experience with Columbia has being so very convincing. Columbia should now focus on introducing new and innovative machinery that will help for better growth.
We purchased first block machine in 1995 from Columbia Machine INC, Vancouver. Thereafter, we bought 3 machines from Columbia India in the subsequent 10 years. Columbia’s Concrete Block Machine is the best machine in the world and there is still no comparison. The kind of compaction and even density obtained in blocks made by Columbia’s Machine due to CVT is difficult to be achieved by any other machine. Our experience with Columbia has been so enriching in these many years that has persuaded us to do lot more business with them.
End of the line was always in question due to less manpower and low cost but integrations of high-speed line and matching up the speeds were the concerns and then we found a partner who not only helped us to integrate lines but also guided us to increase the layers on the pallet so that more products can move to the market and reduce the labor work. After the successful installation and system startup of 1st Palletizer FL150, we were completely satisfied with the performance of the equipment which has provided a reliable end-of-line solution that increases their operational safety and efficiency. It perfectly caters to our line speeds and is in continuous operation as per production schedules. This led us to place an order for another palletizer in the year 2015, the FL3000 which is an upgraded version of the FL150. Two Columbia Palletizers have proven to be the workhorse for KRPL which runs operations in multiple shifts throughout the day.
Effective January 1st, 2020, all manufactured molds and mold parts will be painted Mold Red across all of Columbia Machine’s global operations.
In order to better leverage our technologies and offer top quality molds worldwide, take advantage of our continued efforts to improve and increase operational efficiency, Columbia has made the decision to adopt a standardized paint color across all of its global mold operations.
