CHENNAI: India Cements and Chennai-based deep tech start-up Tvasta Manufacturing Solutions, which specialises in construction 3D printing, are forging a strategic collaboration, marking the beginning of an ‘age of sustainability’ in the construction industry.

The collaboration will see India Cements and Tvasta engaging in dedicated R&D and synergetic exchange of technology-centric efforts to develop new raw material formulations used in 3D printing applications and offering mutual strategic support for key projects that offer cost and time-effective, dwelling solutions to the diverse strata of society.

Founded in 2016 by IIT Madras alumni, Tvasta developed a ‘Made in India’ technology focusing on leveraging automation and robotics in 3D printing platforms for faster, economical and sustainable construction methods compared to conventional technologies.
