Plastic Solutions for Infrastructure
Currently, there is renewed interest in India on the part of investors. Why? Because the country's new government is implementing reforms, economic growth has recovered after bottoming out, inflation is falling, and the current account deficit is shrinking. Crumbling infrastructure, however, remains a major stumbling block for creating a solid base for India's industry. Modernizing that infrastructure is a huge opportunity and SIMONA products can be incredibly useful in the process.
A massive infrastructure program has already been launched in India. Over the next few years, almost 100 billion USD will be poured into improvements to roads, ports, airfields, and power stations.
SIMONA has been active on the subcontinent for many years. Higher investment in infrastructure and the expansion of the chemicals industry promise strong growth potential for our core products. Our fields sales representatives in India are offering the full range of semi-finished PE and PP parts, pipes and fittings to clients in the chemical process, semiconductor, and power generation industries.
In the future, our range will be expanded to include fully fluorinated plastics. Thanks to the involvement of specialists from the Technical Service Centre in Germany, plastics processing companies will benefit from excellent support when it comes to the selection of materials, structural aspects, and project planning.
SIMONA also hopes to exploit fresh application areas through innovative products. New SIMOWOOD sheets made of Resysta® were introduced to the Indian construction industry in 2015. The SIMOLIFE product range will help the company gain a foothold in the healthcare sector, another field with significant potential. SIMOLIFE offers a wide selection of materials for use in the production of orthoses and prostheses.
