Speaking to Autocar Professional at the third ACMA Automechanika New Delhi, Eugene Goryansky, commercial director, Sintec International, sees very good scope for the company which showcased three brands – Sintec, Takayama and Rolf – at the aftermarket show. The company has the licence to manufacture and market the Japanese Takayama brand and the German brand, Rolf. Goryansky says, “India is a very big market but quite price sensitive at the same time. We are looking for a partner but we are also open to enter this market on our own if we don’t find a partner.”

The company, which is close to 25 years old, is keen to set up a base in India in a year from now. In terms of price positioning, the Sintec brand is the most affordable in its range of lubricants. Sintec International has 20 brands overall.
