TIME MAUSER Expands Footprint in India

TIME MAUSER Industries Pvt. Ltd., a joint venture of Time Technoplast and MAUSER Group, announced today that it has opened its second production site for tight head international standard steel drums and open head steel drums at its new state-of-the-art production facility in Jambusar, India.

“The new site in Jambusar is a logical extension of our footprint in India and another milestone in our cooperation with Time Technoplast. We are excited to participate in the fast growing Indian economy together with a strong and reliable partner,” said Hans Peter Schäfer, CEO of MAUSER Group.

The increased customer demand for high-quality steel drums in India has prompted TIME MAUSER to expand its footprint. The new site is located at Jambusar in the state of Gujarat, India’s fastest growing industrial area. The site is situated 60 kilometers away from the Dahej Investment Region, supported by world class infrastructure and a prime destination for several leading petroleum, chemical and petrochemical manufacturers.

Speaking on the occasion, Anil Jain, Founder of Time Technoplast Limited, said: “We are proud of our association with MAUSER Group that has inspired us to bring the latest industrial packaging products into the region. Our second production site for steel drums in India is an extension of our joint venture operations and contributes to firmly establish us as a ‘one-stop-shop’ for our valued customers. We aim at bringing world class steel drums to India for domestic and export packaging.”

The new site will complement the packaging solutions offered by TIME MAUSER to Indian customers from the metal drum manufacturing plant at Pen, Maharashtra.

“We are very happy to introduce our new site in India after only a little more than 15 months, from the initial planning to operations,” added Stefan Wiedenhöfer, Regional Head of MAUSER in Asia. “With the second manufacturing location for steel drums in India, we will be able to react much more efficiently to the growing Indian demand for reliable and high-quality industrial packaging solutions.”
