Stalinjose Selvanayagam named managing director at ENGEL Machinery India

Schwertberg, Austria – On 1 August 2022, Stalinjose Selvanayagam, previously the Sales Director with ENGEL Machinery India Pvt. Ltd., has taken up his position as Managing Director of the sales and service subsidiary of Austrian injection molding machine manufacturer and system solutions provider ENGEL in Mumbai.

“We are delighted to have gained the support of Mr. Selvanayagam as managing director. He has been rooted in the ENGEL Group of companies for many years and knows both the Indian and European markets like the back of his hand,” as Dr. Stefan Engleder, CEO of the ENGEL Group, emphasizes.

Selvanayagam first studied electrical engineering in India and later global sales and marketing in Austria. He joined ENGEL Machinery India in 2005 as a service engineer and was a project manager in the Packaging Business Unit at ENGEL in Austria for many years before returning to his home country of India as Sales Director last year.

He is taking over the management position from Frank Schuster, who headed the subsidiary on an interim basis following the retirement of Jitendra Devlia. As the Regional President METAI, Frank Schuster will continue to work in close collaboration with Stalinjose Selvanayagam.

ENGEL has been on the ground in India with its own subsidiary since 1998 and has established a leading position as a supplier of injection molding machines and integrated system solutions, particularly to the Indian automotive industry. In addition to automotive, the technical molding and medical technology business lines open up a huge amount of potential. “The demand for all-electric injection molding machines from European development is on the increase,” says Frank Schuster. Beyond this, WINTEC t-win machines are increasingly in demand in India.
