Diab has announced that it is the process of establishing a core material finishing facility and sales office in Chennai, India, expected to be fully operational by quarter three of 2007.
Diab’s decision to set up in India is as a result of the unprecedented demand in Asia for the company’s structural core materials and also the recent signing of a long-term supply agreement with Suzlon, one of the largest producers of wind turbines for the Asian market.
This announcement follows on closely from the recent opening of a finishing and sales facility in Thailand (Chonburi, Bangkok) and the doubling in size of its production operation in China (Kunshan, Shanghai). The new facility will include a fully-equipped finishing operation that will be capable of producing sheet goods for the wind energy industry as well as other markets.
Commenting on the new facility, Johan Gralén, VP Sales & Marketing AAO, said “The new Chennai operation further adds to Diab’s unrivalled coverage of the Asia, Africa and Oceania region with combined production, sales and technical services facilities in four strategic locations. This continues to build upon our ‘local support’ model of having Diab’s products and services delivered locally to meet our local customer’s individual needs.”
