Foundrymen & Friends!!

Namaskar & Greetings from Kolkata-the City of Joy!!

Eastern India beckons you yet again to witness the Fellowship of the Foundry Fraternity. With pleasurable temperatures & Eco-friendly ambience of the Eco Park- the environment shall be ideal for learning, networking, sharing, doing business, entertaining - all of which goes into making a great Foundryman!!

There are immense Challenges being faced by the Foundry Industry today:-

from Developing Markets to investing in New Product Designs

■ from Competitive Pricing to executing On Time Deliveries

■ from Technology Up-gradation to arranging Affordable Finance

■ from Manpower Skill Development to Retaining the Workforce
from Quality Improvements to Newer Certifications

It is a question of Survival of the Fittest & Adaptation of the fast-changing scenario in the Foundry World.

To bring in added Challenges - our Government under the Leadership of Hon'ble PM Shri Narendra Modi is focusing on:-
■ MAKE IN INDIA- to usher in another industrial revolution in India
■ Infrastructure Growth at the highest pace-to reach out to the people all over the country
■ Industrial Growth above 7 percent-combining all the Sectors
■ MSME Sector as a Vehicle of India's Growth
■ Skill Development to employ the burgeoning potentially employable mass

FOUNDRY being the "Mother" Industry provides the basic inputs that are required by almost all the Major Industries. Hence if the Indian Industry has to grow by over 7 percent per annum - the Foundry Industry has to grow by over 15 percent per annum. All these CASTING CHALLENGES of the 21st Century are ahead of us-the question is: Are we ready??

So get Ready to MOULDING OPPORTUNITIES that await you at the 65th Indian Foundry Congress-An Ideal Platform to meet Policymakers, Technology Innovators, Technocrats with Immense knowledge & Experience in the Foundry Industry and Exhibitors show-casing their latest Products & Services.

We in the Organizing Committee shall ensure your Comforts during your stay for 3 days or more here in the City known for Knowledge, Music, Art, Culture & mouth-watering Cuisine.
