History of PCERF by Mr. R. R. Dhoot

I have been associated with PCERF right from its initiation. The concept for setting up PCERF was to have an apex organization with an Independent attitude and independent view about the construction industry. We

invited Senior people from sister organization to be the members. All the people work with an intention to “give” and not to “take”, which is our strength. Profit has never been the motive.

Organising Constro inculcates a sense of Teamwork amongst the organizers. Constro has always met its commitment to the exhibitors and tried its best to give maximum facilities to the exhibitors.

Many new products like RMC, Tremix etc. have been launched at Constro.

A sound financial footing and a loyal customer base is the strength of Constro. Constro has been visited by stalwarts like Shri. Pranab Mukherjee, Shri. S. L. Kirloskar and Shri. Sharad Pawar in the past.

Constro exhibitions have been based on novel and innovative themes like the golden quadrilateral Project, use of Bamboo , affordable housing etc. in the past.

The current theme of Pre Engineered Buildings & Innovative Electrical Solutions is apt as automation is the keyword today, quick work, less dependence on labour due to their in availability is the need of the hour.

A permanent venue will go a long way in providing better facilities to the exhibitors.

PCERF has taken press conference all over India and also visited other countries to expand the horizons of Constro and get manufactures from abroad to display their products and technology. We should strive to 
get key decision makers to visit the exhibition.

Younger generation should be involved in the organization and seniors should play the role of mentors.

It would be a good idea to have sister organization plan their seminars concurrently with the Constro exhibition.

Over the period Constro has become a movement and a mission. !!
