When automotive comes, then foundries are growing
The organizer presented divers speakers from the producing and supplying side and opened minds by panel discussions for different subjects in the Foundry industry.
Regarding the basic situation in Middle East Foundries panelists and participants considered that there are different attitudes compared with the standards in Europe and the visions in India concerning energy costs and consumption, labour costs and efficiency and waste of material for instance and they agreed in general, that there is no doubt about the demands in quality production and management.
As Franz Schroeder (ABP) started his high quality presentation, “we are looking for new growing markets” and V. Narasimhan (Brakes India) reported about his Dunes Oman LLC project, the attendees agreed in the basic statement: “When automotive comes, then foundries are growing”.
