MUMBAI, INDIA – Milan, Italy-based Sacmi Group is moving ahead with plans to assemble Negri Bossi injection presses in India.

The company bought 12 acres of land in Sanand, in the western Indian state of Gujarat, to set-up its own new facility. Sanand is a major hub for India's auto industry.

“Currently, we are operating from rented premises in Ahmedabad and land has been taken to build a new factory in Sanand,” said V. Ramesh, CEO of Sacmi Engineering India Pvt. Ltd., at the Plastivision 2013 show in Mumbai. Once the new plant is ready by the middle of 2014, the Ahmedabad operation will move to the new location.

“Currently, we are making around 55 Negri Bossi injection molding machines, and we would double the production at the new plant,” Ramesh said.

Currently it is assembling presses ranging from 100-900 metric tons, but with expansion it will hike the tonnage level to 2,000 metric tons.

Sacmi officials had told Plastics News about plans for the new plant in India earlier this year at the Plastasia trade show in Bangalore.
