DMN opens Indian office

1st September 2017

INDIA: DMN-Westinghouse, the specialist manufacturer of valves for controlling flow of powders and dry bulk materials with worldwide headquarter in the Netherlands, has recently set up an office in Chennai which is being managed by two members of staff who have detailed processing experience.

Sriram Ganesan has been appointed sales manager for India and neighbouring countries. Having worked previously for Siemens Flender and Hosokawa Micron Group India, he has extensive process technology knowledge across various industrial sectors. He has managed several turnkey projects from concept through to commissioning within the minerals and metals, chemicals, pharmaceutical, food and recycling industries as well as having had responsibility for various service divisions specialising in system dismantling, assembly, repair and refurbishment. He has specialist knowledge of powder handling/processing applications including milling, pneumatic conveying, mixing, agglomeration and compaction. Miss Regina is responsible for all marketing and sales co-ordination for India. She is also a former Hosokawa manager with extensive experience. Her knowledge of handling foreign representations and of customer databases has already proved invaluable.

Bob Rogers, general manager of DMN’s UK subsidiary, played a key role in setting-up the India office. “This all started with our exhibiting at a series of trade exhibitions. While we already had a number of Indian based customers, the interest generated at these exhibitions was extremely positive and we realised very quickly that in order to cover India properly we would need to open a dedicated office. Sriram Ganesan and Miss Regina have been instrumental in getting the office organised and their hard work has already had a positive effect.”

Apart from the new Indian office, within Asia DMN has distributors in Iran, Israel, China, South Korea, Taiwan, Singapore, Thailand, Philippines, Indonesia and Oceania.
