HYDERABAD: Ministers Etela Rajender and Ch Malla Reddy laid the foundation stone for Surat-based company Sahajanand Medical Technologies Pvt Ltd’s (SMT) stent manufacturing unit, which is being lauded as Asia’s largest stent manufacturing unit.

“Hyderabad is becoming the dynamic centre for all forms of investment, from IT companies, healthcare to manufacturing units of medical supplies,” they said.

Lauding the city, the CEO of SMT Ganesh Sabat said, “Hyderabad is the perfect amalgamation of entrepreneurial passion the infrastructure required to back it.”
