Boosting the country’s development

Having workers in mind at construction sites : One building after another emerges from the grounds. It is obvious that many projects to develop Cambodia’s urban landscape is undergoing rapid changes – such as building offices, apartments, and shopping malls. The total investment in construction projects more than doubled to USD 8.5 billion in 2016 compared to the previous year, according to the Land Management Ministry.

The construction sector is consequently one of the main drivers for economic growth according to the World Bank. Cambodia’s economic development has been constantly on the rise since 2011, experiencing a growth of at least 7 percent each year. In 2016, the World Bank expects the economy to further remain strong at the same level. 

However, in order to compete with its similarly fast-developing neighboring countries, Cambodia has to build up fast while maintaining cost-efficiency. This is why the construction industry needs to be more mechanized to increase productivity and efficiency of its workforce. While maintaining the number of workers, construction will become faster and at lower cost as a result.

Utilizing power tools at the worksite is one of the ways for mechanization of the construction industry. Rugged, high-quality power tools are increasingly becoming more affordable, and will increase the productivity of worksites significantly. Furthermore, cordless power tools enable workers to be more mobile. They no longer need to look out for loose cables, and are able to move around and work faster, thereby increasing their work efficiency. It also prevents accidents due to less tripping hazards, especially when working at greater heights. More efficient and healthy workers reduce labor and operating costs, as well as decrease the risk of project delays due to site accidents and downtime. In addition, cordless power tools are battery-driven that work independently without the need for constant electricity. In Cambodia, there are on average 1.4 power outages per month, with each one lasting typically around 1.3 hours. Cordless power tools are able to bridge the time without electricity and thus, the workflow at the construction site is not disrupted.

Bosch developed its Contractor’s Choice range of power tools to meet the industry’s demand for quality and affordability. The no-frills range was re-engineered from existing models to be competitively priced, yet still rugged and safe for rigorous applications at construction sites.

Power tools support the booming construction industry by helping to make construction sites more productive and cost-efficient. Cambodia’s urbanization can occur faster and at a lower total cost alongside its rapid economic growth.
