Michelman, a global developer of water-based packaging coatings and surface modifier additives, is expanding in the Indian market with the opening of new offices in Mumbai, India. 


Led by Manoj Deorukhkar, Michelman’s new India country manager, the staff there will be responsible for serving existing Michelman customers and developing new opportunities in the region. “The addition of Indian-based offices gives us a stronger presence in the country, and allows us to help our customers and prospective customers develop their own stronger product portfolios so they can compete in an increasingly competitive landscape,” said Steven Shifman, president and CEO.
