India ought to be known as the Great Grand Father of the World Metallurgical Industry. However due to the unfortunate Historical circumstances many Indians themselves remain ignorant of this fact. The art of Bronze Casting had been practiced in India for several centuries before the Modern World Discovered “Metallurgy”. Copper and Bronze were perhaps the earliest Non-Ferrous Metals which man shaped into tools. Metal is part of the Indian mystique as each Metal has its own alchemic and healing powers as documented in ancient Indian Scriptures written over 5000 years ago. Metal in India has been used as a way of expressing Art in several forms using techniques such as Inlay, Casting, Carving, Applique Enamelling, Engraving etc. Metal craft has also been an integral part of Indian culture.
The Indian Non-Ferrous industry has been performing well and has provided impetus to the Indian industry. It has also led to business opportunities and contributed to growth in major sectors such as infrastructure, power, manufacturing, automobile, environment, defense, transport, R&D, energy, telecom, oil & gas etc. With an objective to motivate the non-ferrous industries as well as professionals working in this sector, to excel in their respective areas, MTLEXS has decided to institute a series of Awards for the non-ferrous metal ecosystem for the very first time.
It is in this context, Mtlexs is organizing the 1st World Non-Ferrous Awards in Mumbai, India on Sep 7-8 2017, in collaboration with the leading news-channel ‘ET Now’ as Television Partner and KPMG as the knowledge partner.
