"Molding the Future of Metal Industries"

The project involved the fabrication of the rolling stock for the AGT, which is a locally-manufactured rapid mass transit.

It is powered by electricity; a coach carries a maximum of 30 passengers; can run at a top speed of 60 kph at full load; rubber tires carry the coaches along a concrete form of conveyance.

Its structural support requires less space and a very small turning radius indicates easy maneuverability around tight city streets.

The AGT will provide green transportation solutions to highly-populated areas in the country.  It is designed with environment friendly features such as lesser fossil fuel dependence and zero greenhouse gas emissions.  This technology, therefore, addresses transportation, pollution, and health concerns of the nation.
