BANGALORE INDIA - Indian Sales Office
Following several successful visits to India, both independently and as part of a UK Government trade mission, Astute Electronics is committed to developing a sales office in the country with a fully equipped test centre to follow.
With business levels growing steadily in both the Indian CEMs and the Defence sector, Astute plan to be open for business in 2014.
Sales opportunities from all over the country have confirmed that our initial interest was justified and whilst currently managing the sales opportunities from the UK, we recognise the importance of local support and have started the process to open what will be our 3rd overseas location.
"India is a natural progression for us, in the same way as opening in China and the USA was before. Whilst we certainly hope and expect to develop new relationships and interact with a wide range of industries, it is the trust and experience that existing Defence-related customers have with Astute that is driving this development. The Indian electronics supply chain is no different to anywhere else in the world. It is susceptible to poor quality and counterfeit products. Astute’s purchasing and test experience will ensure our customers are protected from such issues."
