Metal Casting Technologies : March 2005
BRIEFINGS 13 METAL Casting Technologies March 2005 With the industrial climate improving substantially with both domestic and export orders increasing for foundries, the organisers chose the name "Global Sourcing -- Destination India" as the congress and exhibition theme. Various events were held including Buyer-Seller meet, plenary sessions and Technical events where opportunities were available to exchange information, knowledge and ideas between the exporters and importers from countries around the world. A modern Foundry Park is currently being developed near Howrah with all modern facilities under the leadership of the Indian Foundry Association and with the support of the Government of West Bengal. Many of the existing foundries in the area will be relocated in the new Foundry Park and most of them are likely to install modern equipment. Warill Engineering believes that with hard work and dedication there is great potential to develop the market and Les Craig will assume the responsibility for this area. PEOPLE New Appointment to Inductotherm South East Asian Sales With an increased demand for furnaces from South East Asia, Inductotherm Australia has appointed Stuart Wilson to their Sales Team in the position of Export Sales Engineer. Stuart joined Inductotherm in 1988 as a Service Engineer and later took on the responsibility of starting up and managing the Queensland Service Office. He has travelled extensively throughout Queensland and South East Asia installing and servicing furnace equipment. VALE Charles Harold James Charlie James of Foundry Metals, Guildford Australia passed away on 24 January 2005 aged 81 years. Charlie who worked in the non ferrous foundry business since 1974 will be sadly missed by all his family and colleagues throughout the industry.
