“Translumina presents a unique opportunity to build a leading Global Med-tech company with a strong innovation culture and deep-seated roots in both India and Germany. I look forward to driving the next chapter of growth for the business that will involve bringing a further set of breakthrough technologies to patients around the world, together with a passionate and committed team at Translumina and supportive founders and shareholders,” said Indranil.
