Ram Singh as Technical Services Engineer to support Cereplast's customer base in India with regular on-site services. Mr. Singh will manage production and trial runs, and will provide guidance on process conditions, equipment setup and troubleshooting issues.

Mr. Singh will facilitate a direct line of communication between the Cereplast team and our partners in India, providing ongoing support. India presents an immense opportunity for our product base as it is currently the world's third largest consumer of polymers with approximately 6% market share. Governmental policies and a growing economy have sparked a rise in the continued growth of the polymer market in this region. This addition to our team is a key milestone as we continue to explore activities in the Indian region."  

Mr. Singh has over eighteen years of experience in Injection and Blow Molding, Extrusion Processes and Product Design and Development in the plastics industry. He has worked with Savola Packaging Systems, Sanjay Polymers, KN Petrochemicals and S.H. Polymers, among others.
