In a recently held Annual General Meeting at Bangalore, the Tool & Gauge Manufacturers Association of India (TAGMA India) elected Mr. D. K. Sharma as its new President. Sharma is the Executive Vice President & Business Head of Godrej Tooling, which is a leading Tool Room in the country.

TAGMA India is a Non-Profit Organisation, actively promoting the tooling industry, since its inception in 1990. In 2015, TAGMA completed its Silver Jubilee – 25 years of successful functioning.

The new Executive Council is quite upbeat about pursuing major initiatives such as setting-up of TAGMA Centre of Excellence and Training (TAGMA CET) and TAGMA Common Engineering Facility Centre (TAGMA CEFC), at Chakan–Pune, with requisite support from the Department of Heavy Industries – Government of India. Once the maiden project is put in place, the GOI has encouraged TAGMA to set-up such Centres, pan India.

TAGMA is also making significant & successful efforts in bringing the Tool-making fraternity closer to OEMs, by organising International Tooling Summit, as also the Die & Mould Exhibitions – both of which have witnessed overwhelming international participation, during the previous events.
