This company specializes in manufacturing of Cylinder Blocks for high end engines for high end car brands like Porsche, AUDI, VW, Jaguar, Daimler to name a few. In addition to this, they also have Cylinder Head manufacturing expertise, with large scale production facilities in China and Europe.

Under the JV, KSAT Ag will send their expert managers in the field of production, quality and engineering who will be stationed in India. Their presence will enable Jaya Hind to have access to latest technology for Cylinder Blocks, Bed Plates and Cylinder Heads.
In addition to this, with KSAT Ag’s front end support in Europe & strong technology base in India, Jaya Hind is well poised to gain entry into the European auto-component markets and also address global demand of automotive engine and transmission parts.
