A deep passion and conviction to create an impact in the Indian manufacturing sector was the driving force behind creation of Pro MFG Media. We derive our inspiration from the millions of manufacturing professionals who have been the backbone of the Indian economy but somehow never got the deserved recognition.

Pro MFG Media was founded with a purpose to create a knowledge platform engaging the key stakeholders of the sector- the manufacturing professionals, the academia and the subject matter experts to share best practices, and create an eco-system where Manufacturing thrives.

Our mission is to be a media solution-based catalyst that will Connect – Collaborate – Transform the Manufacturing Space.
