INDIA: Voltas in pact with Thies for textile processing
The textile machine division (TMD) of Voltas Limited has entered into an alliance with M/s Thies of Germany, whereby it would sell and service Thies products in India.

The relationship promi ses to be a fruitful combination of complementary strengths--Voltas as a long-established provider of project solutions and technology support for Indian textiles and M/s Thies with its global pre-eminence in solutions for the textile processing industry.
