SCHWERTBERG, Austria (Aug. 31, 2011)—Engel Machinery India Pvt. Ltd. is expanding its base in India by adding technical and seminar centers to address rising demand in the nation.
“The Indian market for injection molding is transforming beyond recognition,” said Jitendra Devlia, managing director for Engel's Indian business.
The technical center will be used for machine demonstrations, customer trials, pre-production and running mold trials. Courses offered at the seminar center will lead to qualifications for machine operators and maintenance technicians, and the firm also will offer technology seminars for customers and others in the industry.
Engel has been active in India for 13 years and Devlia said growth rates in the nation are expected to remain high. Growth is being driven by strong demand in the automotive, packaging, white goods, agricultural and construction sectors.
