Announcing the new appointment, Thomas Frank, managing director at Heidelberg Asia Pacific, said, Patkar will take charge of the managerial duties and responsibilities from Neilsen with effect from 16 October 2018. Frank thanked Neilsen for his contribution and leadership in the past years. “During his tenure, he made several achievements to the company and expanded the business in many areas.”

Gallus has over 125 installations of its flexo presses in India, a major chunk of installations driven by Patkar.

Frank said, “Under his leadership, Heidelberg India will bring you a more committed and customer-centric approach and provide a professional level of service as always.”

Patkar will be operating from Heidelberg's Mumbai office located in Andheri East.
