Aventics expand to India
Aventics push ahead with the expansion of their international presence. With effect of May 1, 2017, Aventics India Pvt. Ltd. started operations in the new company premises in Bangalore. The location in the South of India includes sales offices, a direct shop floor area, and a warehouse. Additional Aventics sales offices have been established in Mumbai, Chennai, Ahmedabad, and Pune, while at Delhi another sales office is being planned.
Anthony Raju Suresh has taken over the role as General Manager of Operations in India. A Mechanical Engineer with a post-graduate diploma in Strategic Management, Mr. Suresh spent his whole career in India and other countries with automation and fluid technology.
The expansion to new locations is an integral part of the Aventics growth strategy. “The Indian market allows for growth and expansion. Customers have asked for more locally produced goods and we have listened hence the investment in manufacturing as well as the sales offices. Our customers are increasingly looking for easy-to-use and highly economic products”, explains Paul Cleaver, CEO of Aventics. “We are expecting growth as we continue to facilitate easy access to our products and services for our customers around the world,” Mr. Cleaver says.
In 2016, Aventics established sales units in Spain, Singapore, and Mexico to better serve customers in these regions. In spring 2017, the company announced the acquisition of Vector Horizon Technology, a US based company developing clean energy systems with a focus on emission control systems and advanced mechatronic devices.
