International bulk handling for mining
In recent news, Martin Engineering has announced plans to open a business unit in Pune, India, in 2011. Active in the India market since 2004, the company established a solid presence through its licensee, Thejo, to distribute and support selected bulk material-handling technologies across the continent.
Already incorporated in India, Martin Engineering completed a detailed market study and entry strategy in 2010, finding huge potential in further developing its business there and serving customers directly.
The firm maintains its global reach from operations in Brazil, China, France, Germany, Indonesia, Mexico, South Africa, Turkey, and the UK.
