TOKYO, Jun 22, 2022 – (JCN Newswire via – Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Engine & Turbocharger, Ltd.

Taking advantage of the momentum from reaching this milestone, MHIET and MVDE strengthen the sales, procurement, manufacturing and aftersales service further to respond to the growing demand in the Indian market and other markets by utilizing its global network.
