Opening of Technology Solutions Centre in Bangalore represents significant milestone
in AMETEK
SMP's engagement with India

More than 100 AMETEK customers attended the inauguration on October 10 of the new AMETEK Technology Solutions Centre in Bangalore, India, officially opened by Mr P. Ramdas, President of the Indian Machine Tools Manufacturers' Association. This event represented a significant milestone in the history of the company's 10-year involvement in India, a market of ever-growing importance for AMETEK Specialty Metal Products (SMP).

"We are seeing significant growth in India across the aerospace, defense, automotive, and oil and gas industries. For example, the Indian automotive industry is currently preparing for the introduction of stricter emissions regulations (BS-IV) that are in line with US and European standards. As a result, there is a growing demand for the advanced stainless steel and high-alloy powders produced by AMETEK SMP Eighty Four," commented Rahul Gujar, National Sales Manager for AMETEK SMP.

After the inauguration ceremony, with keynote speeches from industry experts, guests were given a full tour of the Centre, which showcases the latest technologies, including a range of AMETEK SMP's high-performance metal powder, tube and strip products.

The new Centre represents a significant investment. It will be a key differentiator for AMETEK and an important resource for its many customers in India across a range of industries. With its facilities for product demonstrations, hands-on training, and calibration services, the centre offers an excellent opportunity for collaborative lead generation across the many different businesses within AMETEK.

AMETEK SMP comprises six specialist manufacturers, including Reading Alloys, Hamilton Precision Metals, Superior Tube, Fine Tubes, SMP Eighty Four, and SMP Wallingford. Collectively, those businesses represent a world-leading force in the manufacture of advanced metallurgical products.
