Worldwide presence: Murrelektronik Opens Branch Office in India

Murrelektronik has had its own branch office in India since April 2017. Preparations for this establishment took a long time: In close collaboration with Techworks, Murrelektronik has established a foothold in the Indian market, made its brand known, and gained customers within the last five years.

Many global companies and automotive specialists run production sites in India. They will soon have local and direct support. The branch office is located in the megacity of Bangalore, which not only is known worldwide for its IT industry, but is also a hot spot for mechanical and plant engineering. To deal with the highly dispersed and densely populated country, Murrelektronik operates four other sales offices in India, a country that is nine times as big as Germany.

The South Asian country of India has established itself as one of the largest emerging markets worldwide in recent years. Stable GDP growth suggests that India will become an important player in global trade in upcoming years. Local companies are establishing themselves in machine tool manufacturing with remarkable quality. The forecast for the automotive industry is also rosy: so far only a third of the population is motorized. Numerous forward-looking projects are also underway in logistics and the solar industry.

The branch office director of Murrelektronik in India is Chetan T.A., who has already been actively working locally for the company’s interests since 2012. The branch office employs a total of 13 people. The sales associates have all obtained their sales license from Murrelektronik’s head office in Oppenweiler and possess a comprehensive knowledge of products and solutions. Select and competent distributors are also a part of the sales network.
