We have already started marketing our building materials and services under the brand name "(https://www.zmartbuild.com/in/zmartbuild-wall-panel/?utm_source=prarticle & amp;utm_medium=cpc & amp;utm_campaign=paidprmarketing) ZMARTBUILD" and have launched a dedicated India website at (https://www.zmartbuild.com/in) to showcase our wide range of products and service solutions.

SCG International India acts as a spearhead for SCG Group in emerging markets and we have high expectations that this initial move will be the starting point for further opportunities in the fast growing Indian Market.

Having spent some time exploring the Indian market, SCG International decided to partner with Bigbloc and selected Gujarat as the first location for SCG investment, given the positive work culture, investment friendly environment, and other favourable factors."

Going further, SCG and Bigbloc shall work jointly on all building material solutions to strengthen the supply chain in India, leverage each other's capabilities and provide exceptional solutions to the construction industry."
