Mumbai, India-based Himalaya Manufacturing Corp. is seeking to collaborate with a European machine manufacturer to strengthen the brand of its plastics recycling machines for export markets.
``We are in discussions with a European party to venture into the Western markets,'' said Himalaya Managing Director Sushil Gupta.
While declining to name the party, he said Himalaya will infuse its products with high-end European technology. Himalaya has supplied some 600 machines to Middle Eastern and African plastics recycling industries.
``We have been exporting our plastics recycling machines to Nigeria for the past 10 years and have established a strong foothold in the Middle East over the last five years,'' he said at Plastindia 2006, held Feb. 9-14 in New Delhi.
Himalaya, which manufactures 600 machines a year from a plant in Rudrapur, India, is already a leading name in India.
