"DCM is in dialogue with foreign original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) for the export of high quality CGI castings," the company said.    

DCM Engineering Managing Director J K Menon, however, declined to name the global vehicle makers with which the company is in talks, citing confidentiality.    

He said besides global players, DCM has also started trials for the new product with some of the Indian commercial vehicle makers without naming them. "Right now the product is being tested for commercial applications and it will take two to three years for us to go into full scale production," Menon said. 

SinterCast President and CEO Steve Dawson said the Swedish firm would partner with DCM to support the CGI development needs of India, one of the world's largest and fastest growing automotive markets.
