Hindustan Tin Works now exporting to China

Indian can maker Hindustan Tin Works (HTW) has added China to its list of export destinations.

While China exports millions of cans to the entire world, Hindustan Tin has started exporting metal can components to China.

Exports from HTW have grown by 341% in the last five years. The company now exports to 22 countries including, US, Australia, Europe, Africa, Middle East and South East Asia with its latest customer being in China.

HTW attributes its export growth to India’s low cost manufacturing base, consistent and strict quality regimes, which it has strictly enforced.

“Since 2006, HTW have invested over $US11 million in technology upgrades and quality improvements bringing our plant up to a world class manufacturing standard. This has enabled our company to become competitive on a global basis,” says Atit Bhatia (pictured), senior vice president, Hindustan Tin Works. “The exports to China, marking a strengthening of our global relationship with an existing multinational customer is a milestone for an Indian can maker and shows that like China, India has the potential to become a major exporter of printed sheets, components and cans to the world.”
