Farrokh N. Cooper, Chairman and Managing Director, Cooper Corporation Pvt. Ltd said, “The Company has graduated from cast iron engine components to contemporary engines. We will provide our marine diesel engines armed with superior design and quality to offer power supply solutions for the Indian Navy and Indian Coast Guard.
