AMETEK Specialty Metal Products joins other AMETEK businesses in presenting technical solutions to Indian Aerospace & Defence industry


In April, AMETEK Specialty Metal Products (SMP) joined other AMETEK businesses to exhibit under a single banner at DefExpo 2018 in Chennai, India. Following this event, billed by the Indian Ministry of Defence as a world-class showcase for the Indian aerospace, defense and security industries, AMETEK organised two Aerospace & Defence Kaizen seminars, under the title of Technical Solutions, in Bangalore and Hyderabad.

Facilitated by AMETEK India, the seminars were attended by Indian government agencies as well as state-owned and private enterprises, including the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), the Defence Research & Development Organisation (DRDO), Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd and Bharat Electronics Ltd.

In addition to AMETEK SMP, a world leader in the manufacture of precision metal tubes, high purity strip, ultra-thin foil, high alloy powders and master alloys for critical defense applications, the other AMETEK businesses involved were Precitech, Taylor Hobson, Zygo, Programmable Power/VTI Instruments, TMC, ECP, and the Airtechnology Group.

Representing a key initiative by AMETEK to engage as a wider group, the seminars enabled the participating businesses to understand the technical challenges the Indian aerospace & defense industry is facing and the solutions that AMETEK companies can provide. AMETEK SMP was represented by Michael Cullum, International Sales Manager EMEA and Rahul Gujar, Sales Manager India. “Positive feedback during the seminars has shown us the value it provided to the participating Indian organisations”, said Michael Cullum.
