Maag Pump Systems, a maker of gear pumps, pelletizing systems, filtration systems and pulverizers, has opened its first sales and service center in India — including a rotor sharpening workshop for strand pelletizers.
The new sharpening center opened Aug. 1 in Vadodara in Gujarat, at the Gala Industries facility. Maag bought Gala last year.
Maag made a major investment in grinding equipment, according to Thomas Willemsen, vice president of business development for after sales and service centers.
“This is a big step forward for Maag in Asia,” Willemsen said. “We consider India as one of the most interesting and fastest-growing markets and we decided to be proactive in serving our customers and the industry in India.”
Maag is based in Oberglatt, Switzerland. Its U.S. operation is in Charlotte, N.C.
