Oerlikon Leybold Vacuum celebrates the completion of a decade of its Indian subsidiary. Although vacuum technologies from Leybold Vacuum had been present in the Indian market before, the subsidiary was founded to deepen the engagement with local market. Since inception, the focus has been on offering complete application support along with an augmented service portfolio.
In 2013, Oerlikon Leybold Vacuum set-up its India Head-office in Bangalore, in order to work closely with the Indian scientific community as well as offer sales and service support to neighboring South Asian markets.
“Our Bangalore facility has enabled us to be in proximity to key customers as well as leverage the local solutions business. Our key customers like the Department of Space are located in Bangalore and this facility would enable us to better serve their needs. Through our staff of trained engineers we offer complete solutions to customers rather than merely selling products”, says Muniram Sreenivasulu, General Manager Sales and Service of Oerlikon Leybold Vacuum India, who has been grooming the 10-fold growth of this subsidiary for the last ten years.
“We continue to invest proactively in emerging markets”, says Dr. Martin Fuellenbach, CEO Oerlikon Leybold Vacuum, “We have further strengthened local leadership by appointing industry veteran Mr. Parnandi Ravindranath as the new Managing Director. This will leverage again the excellent technological expertise of M. Sreenivasulu and strengthen our decade long partnership with Indian customers by offering them new products and solutions.”
