HEIDENHEIM, Germany, Feb. 25, 2011 (Press Release) -Dev Priya Industries Limited, India commissioned Voith Paper Automation with the stepwise upgrade of the PM 2 at their Meerut location, 70 km northeast of New Delhi.

Furthermore, a MD color control as well as a local service contract for the OnQ quality control system are part of the scope of supply.
