AHMEDABAD, INDIA — Ferromatik Milacron India Pvt. Ltd. has shipped its 7,501 injection press — a 1,300-ton Maxima Servo — from its Ahmedabad facility.

The company declined to name the customer, but said in a telephone interview with Plastics News that it was to a client in west Africa.

Ferromatik Milacron is growing around 20 percent annually. It sold 983 injection molding machines in 2011, 1,009 in 2012, and is targeting 1,200 in 2013.
