Sumitomo (SHI) Demag, the injection molding machine manufacturer, has opened a new sales, service and consulting office in Iran.
The office, which opened in early 2016, represents an “experienced team will service a promising market.” Its local partner is Kara Sanaat Rasha Co of Tehran, whose team has more than 15 years of experience working with local customers in the plastics industry.
Alireza Nassiri, managing director of Kara Sanaat Rasha and responsible for Sumitomo (SHI) Demag key accounts, has been working with a network of customers from the plastics processing segment for many years.
Sumitomo (SHI) Demag said: “Customers from Iran are particularly interested in automated high-performance injection molding machines with medium to high clamping forces.
"Focusing on this segment, Sumitomo (SHI) Demag identified two target customers: manufacturers of high-quality plastic packaging with a demand for productive high-speed machines such as the El-Exis SP, and suppliers to the automotive industry who are working with large machines such as the Systec SP and require special processing methods, integrated automated handling equipment or downstream joining and assembly processes. Suppliers to the construction industry as well as manufacturers of industrial parts, medical disposables and all others will be interested in electrical and hydraulic machines made by Sumitomo (SHI) Demag.”
