Our Company


DUST-A-SIDE HINCOL is a 50:50 joint venture between DUST-A-SIDE and HINDUSTAN COLAS (HINCOL). The main goal of this joint venture is to provide total dust management solutions to mines, industries, quarries and civil construction sites across India. 


Holistic dust control, road management and erosion control experts 

DUST-A-SIDE was first established in South Africa in 1973. Since then, the company has accumulated hundreds of years of combined project experience, employs nearly 900 dedicated personnel, and operates across five continents. 

The company specializes in dust control and haul road management services which deliver quantifiable benefits to clients including fuel savings, water savings, improved safety, effective dust suppression, increased productivity and increased tyre life. DUST-A-SIDE has a strong focus on servicing the mining industry, but also works with other industries such as quarries and processing plants.

DUST-A-SIDE leverages off its dynamic parent company COLAS which has a 50% stake in the DUST-A-SIDE Group. Colas is a world leader in the construction and maintenance of transport infrastructure, undertaking around 90,000 projects every year via a network of 800 construction units and 2,000 material production sites. 

With over four decades of global research and refinement to rely on, DUST-A-SIDE has everything it takes – the products, the experience and the personnel – to provide quantifiable results on every level.


Specialists in providing effective and sustainable solutions for infrastructure development

HINCOL was formed in 1995 as a result of a joint venture agreement between HINDUSTAN PETROLEUM CORPORATION LIMITED– India’s premier oil refining and marketing company, and COLAS – a global leader in the road construction and infrastructure development business. And thus, Hindustan Colas Ltd. (HINCOL) was formed.

The goal of this joint venture was to explore and develop the immense potential in the field of value added bituminous products. HINCOL began to commence manufacturing operations at its first plant located at Navi Mumbai in Maharashtra. This began a journey that has seen HINCOL emerge as market leaders in the value-added bitumen segment, servicing road construction activity all over the country.

HINCOL has continued to strive to achieve the goals of both Hindustan Petroleum and Colas. Over the years, HINCOL has played a pioneering role in the evolution of bitumen emulsions and modified bitumen as technologically superior alternatives for specific applications in the road construction industry in India. Throughout this journey, HINCOL has established a total of 10 manufacturing plants spread across India. These milestones have inspired HINCOL to chart new territories and create more value for their clients.
