There is enormous potential for growth in India with endless opportunities for Electrolube’s specialty products to help customers find new solutions to old problems. We have also discovered that local manufacturers are keen to enhance their green credentials and we will be investing further in promoting our eco-friendly, aromatic-free conformal coatings and water-based cleaning solutions, as well as the full range of coatings, greases, resins and cleaning products.”
