Novasep is expanding its presence in India with the opening of Novasep Process Engineering Services PCT Ltd., a part of its Industrial Business Unit. The new office will allow Novasep to serve industries in India producing functional and commodity food and feed ingredients, milk derivatives and bio-based chemicals.
Michel Cotillon has been promoted to head the subsidiary as general manager. Mr. Cotillon was formerly R&D head of Novasep’s industrial biotech business, and then served as area sales manager for France and Benelux. In addition to food and feed ingredients, Novasep’s Indian subsidiary will continue to sell biopharma chromatography equipment and associated processes in India.
“Novasep’s setup in India is another key milestone in our strategy to expand our geographical presence,” said Michel Spagnol, chief executive officer at Novasep. “After our success in China, Novasep India is well placed to support our growth in future years.”
“India is one of the most dynamic areas where Novasep’s expertise can meet manufacturer expectations for state-of-the-art processes,” said Nadege Laborde, president of the Industrial Biotech Business Unit. “Novasep has a complete portfolio of technologies and extensive know-how in industrial purification technologies for the food and feed ingredient industries. Michel Cotillon’s strong technical expertise and leadership as general manager of Novasep Process Engineering Services will ensure our successful development in India.”
