Dilo has done business in India for more than 30 years. With the establishment of the Gurugram office, the company says it will be in a better position to keep a closer relationship with its Indian customers and ensure prompt assistance for sales and after-sales servicing of their machinery.

“Since the mid-nineties, there has been an increased demand for nonwovens installations worldwide. Our machines and products have had a long and strong presence in the Indian market already. To augment our strengths in a growing environment, we decided to establish our own operations in India. This will enhance our presence and expand our capacity in a market that has tremendous potential for growth,” said Johann-Philipp Dilo, CEO of the DiloGroup.

DiloGroup comprises four companies, namely DiloTemafa (fibre opening and blending solutions) DiloSpinnbau (carding technology), DiloMachines (cross lapping and needling machines) and DiloSystems, which provide complete lines for the various nonwoven applications and also project installation services.

“Dilo brings a wealth of technological know-how in the field of nonwovens to India. Our tailormade production lines offer new possibilities for customers to achieve very high throughput even with critical and demanding applications and fibres,” the company reports.

Dilo’s technology showcase includes but is not limited to, opening and blending solutions, universal and high capacity carding machines, including random card technology and large card working widths exceeding 5 m with high web speeds up to 400 m/min at the winder of e.g. water entanglement lines. In addition, high speed crosslappers, as well as universal and high capacity needle looms DI-Loom, are part of the programme.

“Dilo has brought many innovative solutions to the nonwovens industry and has become a preferred supplier for the production of nonwovens and technical textiles used for example in automobiles, filtration products, geotextiles, synthetic leather, roofing material, domestic and industrial wipes, hygiene products, agricultural products, natural fibre felts for upholstery and bedding applications,” the company continues.

Dilo India will be headed by Yogesh Garg, who is a well-known expert on Dilo equipment and in the field of nonwovens. He will be guided by DiloGroup’s Sales Director and Managing Director of Dilo India, Dr-Ing Gunnar Hemmer. Hjalmar Schwab, Area Sales Manager for India and South-East Asia, is part of the team and supports out of Dilo’s headquarters in Germany. Dilo is planning a technological symposium in Delhi in the fourth quarter of 2018.
