Led by Mr. Sheregar and Mr. Shanmugasundaram, I am sure that TAGMA will achieve newer heights and will continue to play an active role in the development of the Indian tooling industry at large. We have started many futuristic activities in the past few years, and I am sure that the new team will ensure that the benefits reach the entire ecosystem. In the last couple of years, we were successful in getting closer to the Government and Policymakers, I would suggest the new EC work very closely with the Policymakers and present the challenges faced by the Indian tool makers before them.”
The new EC team has requested Mr Sharma to continue to guide and mentor the TAGMA management and help the association in charting our development strategies.
“The Indian tooling industry is in a high-growth phase with the Indian manufacturing industry gaining a considerable amount of attention in the past few months. In such a scenario, TAGMA’s role becomes even more important to help the Indian tooling industry capitalise on these growing opportunities.
