Pune is known as the Detroit of western India. The city is base to a large number of industries in automotive, heavy engineering, aerospace, defence, ordnance and many other manufacturing segments. The presence of leading manufacturing companies makes the expo a significant one for western region.
Expressing his views on PMTX 2018, P Ramadas, President, IMTMA said, “Automotive sector is the largest consumer of machine tools. We have substantial number of members from western region based in Pune as this is one of the major markets for them. A show like PMTX will be a great enabler for business development of machine tools in this region.”
Supporting Ramadas’s views, V Anbu, Director General and CEO, IMTMA added, “New and emerging technologies are the need of the hour for the development of any manufacturing industry. IMTMA will bring these technologies closer to the door steps of manufacturing industries in this region through PMTX. The show will support not only the OEMs in automotive sector but also other major engineering industries in the region to upgrade their manufacturing capabilities.”
