What do you think sets your company apart from your competitors?
We are equipped with 100% in-house designing, simulation, validation, manufacturing and testing facilities to help manufacture each part with supreme quality, which is key to keeping customers satisfied and happy, and gives us repeat business from customers. We also keep producing new different products with new metallurgies to improve processing at customer end and putting us ahead of competition.
What are the biggest challenges facing the industry today and how can this be overcome?
Supply chain uncertainty and cost of logistics is the biggest challenge since last 12-14 months. Input cost of materials changes drastically and creates pressure as a manufacture, and that is really challenging to maintain price levels and delivery commitments for customers.
How do you see the sector developing in the next five to ten years?
We see huge growth in petrochemicals industry in India and worldwide, huge potential of EV vehicles, charging stations, solar energy and many more companies creating big demand of thermoplastics and new polymers. There will also be growth engine for the entire process chain including processers, equipment and parts manufacturers, and users, meaning the industry will grow by a 10% rate year on year for the next 10 years.
What are you most looking forward to at this years’ show?
We are exhibiting for the first time. North America is very much a potential market for us, we are looking forward to meeting some of our existing and potential customers to grow our business relationships. We are also looking for new distributors in the North American and Canadian market to create more opportunities and grow together with our solutions.
