Michelman expands in India

September 18, 2012

The move comes in response to India's growing flexible packaging market.

Michelman, a global developer of water-based packaging coatings and surface modifier additives, is continuing its support of the burgeoning Indian market with the opening of new offices in Mumbai, India.

Led by Manoj Deorukhkar, Michelman’s new India country manager, the staff there will be responsible for serving existing Michelman customers, and developing new opportunities in the region.

According to Steven Shifman, president and CEO at Michelman, “We have seen significant growth in this key market, especially in flexible packaging applications; water based additives for inks and overprint varnishes; as well as automotive, industrial and coil coatings. The addition of Indian-based offices gives us a stronger presence in the country, and allows us to help our customers and prospective customers develop their own stronger product portfolios so they can compete in an increasingly competitive landscape."
