Die indische Firma Pooja Heatex aus Surat und die deutsche FUNKE Wärmeaustauscher Apparatebau GmbH haben vereinbart, gemeinsam eine breite Palette von Platten- und Rohrbündelwärmeaustauschern für weitreichende Anwendungsmöglichkeiten in verschiedensten Industriebereichen herzustellen.
The first stage will see Funke manufacturing heat exchangers for process applications at Pooja Heatex’s facility in Surat. These will be supplied to customers in India, South and West Asia, Africa, and the Americas. Some employees of the joint venture company will undergo special training at the Funke headquarters in Gronau, Germany.
This new joint venture is aiming to achieve a sales revenue of over USD 75 million in India and USD 150 million from exports over the next five years.
At the press conference in Mumbai, Arpan Patel (Managing Director of Pooja Heatex Engineering) said the joint venture will bring in a wide range of international customers to the company and give it a competitive edge.
Bernd Timmermann, Managing Director of FUNKE Wärmeaustauscher Apparatebau GmbH, expects that the joint venture company will be able to meet the requirements of South Asian customers and comply with the equally high quality requirements of European customers.
This collaboration was initiated by Alcor Mergers and Acquisitions, a portfolio company of the Alcor Fund Group. It shows how international business transactions have increased as a consequence of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ‘Make in India’ campaign.
