German body for closer ties with ceramic sector

Our Bureau

Kolkata , March 21

The Indian office of the German Engineering Federation (VDMA) finds a potential for closer cooperation among German ceramic manufacturers and their counterparts in India in the foreseeable future.

This is the finding of the federation following negotiations between a six-member German delegation of ceramic machinery manufacturers and their Indian counterparts.

This is the first time that a delegation of German machinery manufacturers from the ceramic industry has visited some Indian cities from March 13 to 18, 2006. They came with an objective of having "first hand knowledge" about the India ceramic industry and to assess the market and technological standards.

The VDMA'S India office Director, Mr Rajesh Nath said that the average growth of over 12 per cent growth in the Indian ceramic industry offered good business opportunities for the German industry. The delegation visited factories of Allied Ceramics, Indian Potteries and Ghosh Metalworks. The other cities covered were Mumbai, Pen, Alibagh, Morbi and Bangalore, and the sectors covered this visit were wall tiles, floor tiles, insulators, roof tiles, refractories and sanitaryware.

The delegation comprised internationally reputed German companies like Eirich, Keller, Rieter, Novokeram and Lingl.
