Murrelektronik Opens New Subsidiary in India

Since April 2017, Murrelektronik has its own subsidiary in India. Preparations for this new location took a long time: In close collaboration with Techworks, Murrelektronik has established a foothold in the Indian market, established brand awareness, 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 subsidiary is located in the mega-city of Bangalore, which is not only 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 rising: 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.
