Macro Engineering & Technology Inc., a Mississauga, Ontario-based supplier of plastic film equipment, is entering the Indian market.
Macro has appointed Mumbai-based Shruti International to represent its film systems and components in India, including for custom coating, winding and web-handling applications.
Surendra Sagar, Macro's product manager for blown and cast film systems, said that the Shruti appointment was timely for the Indian plastics industry, which has adopted an ``invest now'' philosophy to upgrade product offerings through new technologies. Sagar hopes Macro's technology will play a vital role in that effort.
``Macro's continuous investment in [research and development] ensures that the latest technology is always available to our customers,'' Sagar said at the Society of Plastics Engineers India conference on ``Emerging Trends in Polymer Technology,'' held Dec. 7-8 in Mumbai.
