Romaco has officially opened its new Sales & Service Centre in Hyderabad, India. The event was attended by 400 invited guests from the pharmaceutical industry. This is Romaco and Truking’s first joint facility.
The joint branch will enable Romaco and Truking, its Chinese parent company, to strengthen their presence in the Indian market and throughout the South Asian region. Following a Lighting Lamp Ceremony, Romaco CEO Jörg Pieper introduced the Romaco India team and outlined the strategy for the future. In a series of presentations, solutions developed by Romaco specifically for the Indian market were described and demonstrated.
On the processing side these included processing technologies from Romaco Innojet as well as the “Cool, Fast & Clean” system concept for the tablet presses in Romaco Kilian’s KTP X series. The Romaco Noack NBL 400 blister line, which was specially designed to meet the needs of the Asian pharmaceutical markets, and Romaco Macofar’s microdosing solutions for filling sterile powders were highlighted during the packaging presentations.
The new Sales & Service Centre Romaco India Pvt. Ltd. has offices in Mumbai and Hyderabad. The two sites will enhance Romaco’s position on the Indian subcontinent, across South Asia and into Northern Africa.
Amol Nikam, General Manager of Romaco India will be responsible for customer service. He has more than 15 years of professional experience handling machinery and equipment for the pharmaceutical industry. He emphasized how important it is for high technology to interact with customer proximity: “Our sales reps and service technicians can be on the spot in less than a day and they speak the local languages. That’s vitally important as a condition of robust, long-term partnerships.” Around 300 Romaco machines are already up and running in India. – Contract Pharma
