Hot runner supplier Mold-Masters Ltd. has opened a production facility in Coimbatore, India.

 

The new plant is intended to complement an engineering office that Mold-Masters has been running in Coimbatore since December 2006.

 

“It has always been a question of when, not if, we would make a major expansion in India,” said Jonathon Fischer, president and CEO of Georgetown, Ont.-based Mold-Masters. “With the rapid growth of tooling production in India, the timing was perfect to boost our regional presence and support for the local market.”

 

“The project team has successfully brought on-line this state-of-the-art facility which is designed to manufacture local hot runner systems, hot halves, and temperature controllers,” added Kannan Venkatraman, the company’s regional manager of South- East Asia. “We feel our customers will be very pleased with our ability to enhance even further our support to them”.

 

Mold-Masters employs approximately 900 workers, with manufacturing and sales support in 40 countries.
