Opening Alucast 2008

Unfortunately less visitors than expected attended this professional organized show by R.T. Kulkarni (Aluminium Casters`Association of India)

“It`s not the quantity of visitors, it`s their quality and concrete purpose what really counts,” said one of the Indian exhibitors and predicted the conclusion of most of the international companies.

Asking them about the current situation the majority confirmed, we have to pass the next month and shall be prepared for the time after the crisis. We will use time for planning, restructuring and maintenance anyway, because technical leadership, development and quality will survive.

Just now India opens opportunities by a dominated domestic market.
