Maag opens sales/service centre in India


Switzerland-headquartered Maag, a manufacturer of gear pumps, pelletising systems, filtration systems, and pulverisers, has announced the opening of its first sales and service centre in India, including a rotor sharpening workshop for strand pelletisers. The opening of the new India service facility follows the recent expansion of Maag’s sales and service centre in Thailand.

The new rotor sharpening centre in India will expand Maag’s service footprint in Asia, which is one of the world’s fastest-growing regions for plastics manufacturing and processing. It is the eighth rotor sharpening workshop for Maag, expanding the company’s capabilities beyond Brazil, China, Germany, Malaysia, Taiwan, Thailand, and the US.

“This is a big step forward for Maag in Asia,” said Thomas Willemsen, Vice-President of business development for After Sales and Service Centres. “We consider India as one of the most interesting and fastest-growing markets and we decided to be proactive in serving our customers and the industry in India.”

The new sharpening centre in India is located in Vadodara (Gujarat) at Gala’s facility. Gala has been part of Maag since October 2015. Maag made a significant investment in new grinding equipment, making it the most modern facility in India, according to Willemsen. In addition to high-quality grinding service for rotors, bed knifes and die plates, Maag offers also short delivery times and service support through its qualified service technician for its customers.

Maag’s rotor sharpening service can handle a broad range of standard rotors and bed knifes which are used in plastics pelletising. The 1,000 sq m production facility in Gujarat is large enough to accommodate future expansion plans, the company said. The India sales and service centre employs about six people
