They understand the distinct needs of the Indian manufacturing landscape, shaping their solutions to meet these specific demands. By balancing operational efficiency with strategic partnerships, MISUMI navigates challenges while seizing opportunities for sustainable growth. Mr Morishima highlighted Japan’s focus on overall efficiency, checking and confirming if the total lead time is shortened or the total cost is reduced. His perspective aims to contribute significantly to the vision and strategy of MISUMI India.

Gaurav Nagpal, Regional Manager, MISUMI India Pvt Ltd, has provided insights into MISUMI’s participation in MOLDEX 2024, highlighting the company’s debut in the exhibition. In an exclusive conversation with Machine Maker, Mr Nagpal has outlined the items intended to be showcased in MOLDEX 2024, featuring press and mold items, along with automation products. Emphasizing customer time-value, Nagpal discussed the strategic placement of warehouses in Gurgaon and Bangalore, housing around 50,000 and 10,000 stock items, respectively. The company’s focus on expanding stock levels in India aims to facilitate quick dispatch, even on the same or next day, to support the industry effectively.

Addressing inventory availability, Gaurav stated that 70% of the total product range could be dispatched to customers within six days, including items imported from other countries. He differentiated between stock items available in Gurgaon or Bangalore and Made to Order (MTO) items tailored to specific orders. Mr Nagpal also highlighted the company’s commitment to free shipping across India, irrespective of item weight, offering free-of-cost surface freight and nominal charges for air freight. Regarding MISUMI’s stall at MOLDEX 2024, Mr Nagpal mentioned that visitors could explore new launches, such as the economy series, reflecting the company’s focus on featuring high-quality components at affordable prices. Alongside the economy series, MISUMI introduces new items in the Die and mold sections, catering to evolving preferences in a market where product life is becoming shorter.

As MISUMI gears up for the MOLDEX INDIA 2024 exhibition, the company anticipates a positive response and substantial footfall. The recently opened warehouse in Bangalore further underlines the strategic importance of the southern region for MISUMI’s business operations. Gaurav Nagpal also highlights the significance of Bangalore as a key market and emphasizes MISUMI’s status as a global commerce company.
