Fresh focus now on ‘Make in India' brand
Wood News|July - August 2020
Holytek began with exporting woodworking machinery more than 30 years ago. Its goal has always been playing ‘made in Taiwan’ ambassador to the rest of the world, says Mr George Koo, General Manager-Sales. An India veteran, he adds that Holytek is now a one-stop shop for woodworking machinery and components. Read on…
Mr George Koo

How has Holytek progressed in terms of manufacturing capabilities and capacities in these past decades?

We insist in the ‘Made in Taiwan’ quality to ensure our customers are satisfied with Holytek machinery, which mean customers should all receive long service life and European quality standard products from us. Taiwanese quality equals that expected of European manufacturers, but we have more competitive pricing and better investment return.

Also, Holytek has been eagerly expanding its machinery services and knowledge. In the last 20 years, we have moved from single, stand-alone machine services to offering more turnkey production lines products, as well as from hardware to software connection services.

What is the range of machinery Holytek offers to the Indian market?

Solid wood machinery is still our main focus, as it also resembles the growing high quality furniture export demand from Indian manufacturers. However, prefer to be a one-stop shop; so we are offering all ranges of products, including both panel processing, manual and standalone machines to full production lines and CNC-controlled machines.

How has furniture manufacturing in India progressed ever since you first entered this market? What is its potential?

We’ve been in India market for over 20 years, and we have seen tremendous development in the Indian furniture industry, especially in furniture export to European and US markets.

Many of these furniture manufacturers exporting to EU or the US are aggressively expanding their production capacity and product range. This transformation is more obviously seen in the India market within the past 5 years.

IN SEASON Chickpeas (GARBANZO BEANS)

Chickpeas appear in early recordings in Turkey well over 5000 years ago. India produces the most chickpeas worldwide but they are grown in more than 50 countries.
