The Automotive Component Manufacturers Association of India (ACMA) announced the appointment of Nirmal K Minda as the President and Ram Venkataramani as the Vice President of ACMA for the term 2017-18. The announcement was made at the 57th ACMA Annual Session during its Executive Committee meeting.
Announcing the new President, Vinnie Mehta, Director General, ACMA said, “We are pleased to announce the appointment of Nirmal K Minda as ACMA President. He is an industry veteran who brings in a wealth of knowledge with a strong background in automotive industry”.
Accepting the new charge of responsibility, Minda, said, “It is an honour and privilege to be appointed as President of ACMA, which is the apex body of the Indian auto component industry. Serving as the Vice President of ACMA for the past one-year has given me an understanding of the opportunities, issues and challenges being faced by the auto components industry. Today, the industry is going through an interesting yet challenging phase. While we have progressed well in the past, we are now entering the next phase of development, where one is witnessing several regulatory initiatives that promote lower levels of vehicular emissions, higher safety standards and greater environment protection. Considering these changes, as an industry body, it is important for us to acknowledge these changes and gear towards this transformation. To stay relevant, we will have to acquire or develop relevant technologies at a much faster pace. I am confident that we will meet these challenges with the support of the government and our stake holders.”
