Sintex Wausaukee Composites Inc. is bringing its light resin transfer molding expertise to India, opening a fiber reinforced plastic production cell for original equipment manufacturers at a plant operated by its sister company, Bright Autoplast Ltd.

Sintex Wausaukee joined in a joint venture with Bright Autoplast Ltd. at its facility in Pune, India. Both are subsidiaries of Sintex Industries Ltd., a manufacturer of structural plastics and textile headquartered in Kaloi, India.

“It is a global synergy play,” said Ed Trueman, president and CEO of Wausaukee, Wis.-based Sintex Wausaukee, in a telephone interview.

He said the JV has trained the work force and taken about 15,000 square feet to install the cell, using U.S.-sourced equipment.

It is aimed at customers in markets including industrial, agricultural truck and tractor, mass transit, medical imaging, commercial furnishings, therapeutic systems, recreation and corrosion-resistant materials handling.

Trueman said the arrangement allows customers, especially multi-nationals, to take advantage of composites in their products.

They can also utilize Bright for injection molding and other services.

The JV is the first phase of a global supply plan developed by the company’s special projects vehicle group to expand the use of FRP composites.
