Pune: Premium Transmission Ltd. (a Karan Thapar Group company), a leading manufacturer of industrial gearboxes in India, has divested its automotive gear manufacturing division in Aurangabad to Indsur Global Limited. The division was catering, primarily to some three wheeler manufacturers in the country.

Indsur Global manufactures insulator castings for the automobile sector at its Halol plant. The acquisition provides Indsur Group access to key customers and a strong platform for expansion.

Praveen Sachdev, chairman,Premium Transmissions said that the company would now focus more on its core industrial sector. Around 92 percent of the Premium Transmission's turnover comes from industrial transmission solutions, while the automotive gear manufacturing division was contributing only about 7 percent to the company's turnover.
