WHO IS TIA?

Taloja Industries Association (TIA), started a decade back, in the year 2009, is a registered Association, which is formed by body of owners of Industrial units at MIDC Taloja and run by Industrialists/businessmen, who are stakeholders of their respective Industrial units. TIA was founded by likeminded Industrialists who had a common goal of improving infrastructure of Taloja Industrial Area and communicating the latest government regulations and policies to the member Industries.

Due to the vast experience, global knowledge and visionary insight, all the stakeholders of Taloja Industrial area requested Mr Satish Shetty (Anna) to take up the responsibility of being the Hon. President of TIA. He was especially chosen as he is highly influential, well connected with Government, Ministers, Bureaucratic authorities and Industrial owners.
