Krauss-Maffei sells 100th PU machine in Iran
In the field of PU processing systems, the reaction process machinery division of the Krauss-Maffei Kunststofftechnik GmbH, Munich, Germany has built a strong position in the Iranian market. The recent sale of the 100th machine in Iran was another milestone in KM’s successful cooperation with its local partner in Iran, the Teheran based company Karamadan. Karamadan has been the Iranian sales and service partner for KM’s reaction machines since 2000. Karamadan provides full service support for machines and systems shipped to Iran – from installation and commissioning to maintenance, repairs and fast spare parts supply. The company has set up a training centre in Teheran offering Iranian customers a local venue where they expand their know-how in PU processing. Iran‘s plastics processing industry is growing rapidly. In 2004, according to VDMA figures, German exports of machinery and systems to Iran were worth over EUR 90 million. This is double the figure for 2002.
