India is rapidly turning into a global manufacturing hub, thanks to the country’s manufacturing and engineering
capabilities, vast pool of skilled expertise and its size. These qualities offer it a strategic advantage for the manufacturing segment. A large number of international companies in varied
segments have already set up a manufacturing base in India and others are following suit. It only makes sense to bring this industry segment together under one roof to discuss the current
trends and technology prevalent to the marketplace. IPTEX 2012 is scheduled from February 9–11, 2012 at the Bombay Exhibition Center in Mumbai, India.
In India, “namaste” is used as a common greeting. Although it translates
literally to “I bow to you,” it’s often

phrase here because I’d like to introduce you to an exciting new project
and venture for Randall Publications LLC.
