Larsen & Toubro, on Monday, said it had signed a share sale and purchase agreement (pending final closing conditions) with Toshiba Machine Co., Ltd. (TMC) of Japan to sell its entire stake in L&T Plastics Machinery Ltd (LTPML), as part of its strategic roadmap to exit non-core businesses and rationalise its portfolio.

In March 31, 2009, L&T acquired the equity formerly owned by Demag to form LTPM.
Its facilities in and around Chennai incorporate some of the most advanced systems for design and research, hydraulics and mechanical construction.
