TELCO Construction Equipment Company Limited (Telcon) is a joint venture company between Tata Motors and Hitachi Construction Machinery, based in Bangalore, India. It began manufacturing equipment in 1961 as part of TATA Motors, but was formed in 1999 when TATA spun off its construction manufacturing division. TATA had entered into a licensing agreement with John Deere for the manufacture of backhoe loaders, but the agreement expired in 2006. Telcon attempted to renew, with no response from John Deere until 2008, when John Deere charged Telcon with 'trademark violation'. (John Deere was pursuing an Indian joint venture with Ashok Leyland). Telcon discontinued us of the John Deere brand, design and logo.
In 1984, Hitachi Construction Machinery joined into the company with financial and technical assistance. In 2000, the company became a joint venture when Hitachi purchased 20%. In 2010, the company was renamed Tata Hitachi Construction Machinery Company Private Limited as Hitachi became majority owner with 60% share.
Telcon is the market leader in the construction equipment industry in India and commands more than 50% market share in India.[citation (source) needed] Equipment is sold under Telcon, TATA and TATA Hitachi brands.
Telcon is a 60:40 joint venture between Tata Motors, India and Hitachi Construction Machinery Co. Ltd, Japan. Telcon is the first Indian manufacturer to have two manufacturing bases; one at Jamshedpur and the other at Dharwad.
Telcon has a wide range of construction equipment: backhoe loaders, hydraulic excavators, wheeled loaders, cranes, road equipment, haulers etc., to cater to a wide spectrum of industry segments like mining, construction, infrastructure and agriculture.
Telcon acquired a 79% stake in Serviplem S.A. based in Spain, which manufactures truck mounted concrete mixers and Dry bulk tanks for cement, and 60% in COMOPLESA LEBRERO S.A., Spain which manufactures road construction machinery.
The company was renamed Tata Hitachi Construction Machinery.
