Mold maker Zahoransky Gormenbau GmbH has opened a facility for making injection molds in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu, which will act as the German group's Asian center for serving customers throughout the region.
The new 27,000-square-foot building was formally inaugurated in mid-November 2013. It has 60 employees who manufacture injection molds for the Indian and Asian market.
"In the long term, complex automated molds are expected to be offered and supplied from India," said Zahoransky officials.
The service personnel in India also provide support and maintenance of molds made by Zahoransky in Germany that are located at customer facilities in India and other countries in Asia.
Zahoransky has locations in Germany and the US, and the addition of an Asian location means its customers can now be supported and served around the clock.
The Indian facility's design department is fully networked with the parent plant in Freiburg for mold construction.
