Indo-MIM has opened its first overseas manufacturing facility in San Antonio, Texas, USA. The plant, which cost approximately $30 million to build, is reported to be the most modern Metal Injection Moulding facility to be built in the North American region in over seventeen years.

The new plant is a vertically integrated facility that includes in-house feedstock preparation, MIM primary operations, in-house heat treatment and a number of in-house secondary operations. At full capacity, it is expected to provide approximately 300 jobs to the local community.

With the establishment of a North American presence, Indo-MIM Inc stated that it plans to capture a maximum share of the growing USA MIM market in the coming years, and reportedly plans to cater primarily to the firearms, medical, military and aerospace industries.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony and plant tour were held to inaugurate the plant on October 3, 2017. The ceremony was attended by a number of key figures at Indo-MIM, including Roland Mover, President Port San Antonio, Krishna Chivukula Sr, Chairman of Indo-MIM, and Krishna Chivukula Jr, CEO Indo-MIM Inc. Also in attendance were several local figures, including Nelson Wolff, Bexar County Judge and Sheryl Sculley, City Manager.

The March 2016 edition of Powder Injection Moulding International featured an exclusive editorial on Indo-MIM’s rapid expansion and plans for maintaining its future growth. To read the article, download the digital edition of PIM International for free.
