Yes, I would like to draw your attention on the Exhaust-Gas Recirculation (EGR) and a new CCC double tube safety cooler. EGR coolers is a tailored solution with certified quality.

To create a greater customer value we redesign and implement technical improvements in this product.

How do you assess the market scenario? What impact do you think the new government policies or changing market conditions will have on your organization?
I had recently read an article titled ´India sets a renewable target of 175 GW by 2022´. The article had indicated about many new projects in Hydro power as well as Wind power. We have good presence in both these markets and this augurs well for our future in India. The overall mood looks positive and this is a healthy sign. We definitely look forward to better days ahead in India.
