Damper Technology Ltd (DTL) announce plans to build a manufacturing plant on land where the offices of their subsidiary company DTL India are located in Coimbatore, Southern India.

The team in India consists of a management structure, design engineers, project managers and sales staff. And more staff will be recruited from the local area once the factory is complete.
A member of DTL India’s drawing office, Satish Kumar has recently completed a 4 months secondment at the UK Head Office, to help with the increased workload generated from Indian projects and also to gain knowledge and experience to take back and put into practice in India.
