Lifting and positioning specialist Power Jacks has completed its latest expansion move by opening a dedicated sales office in India to service an increasingly significant market.
The new sales hub is the focal point for a major business development drive across the country as UK-based Power Jacks looks to grow its international activity.
The four-strong team at the office in Vadodara in Gujarat state is focused on business growth via both existing and new customers across India.
Power Jacks anticipates that its existing base of blue chip customers in India will be among the first to benefit from the additional local support it can now offer.
Power Jacks has sales teams in Germany, China and now India – where it is operating under the company name Power Jacks (India) Pvt. Ltd. – as well as a wider network of distributors and agents in key markets around the world.
Power Jacks Chairman and owner, Bruce Bultitude, says: “Our new office in India represents an important step forward in our international growth strategy. It is an investment that reflects the significance of the Indian market to our business. We see major opportunities to grow our business there, and aim to capitalise on those with an on-the- ground presence that greatly enhances our profile.”
Managing Director Keith Mackie adds: “This is an exciting move for Power Jacks. Our team in India has extensive experience and an in-depth understanding of the market – it is ideally equipped to strengthen our links with existing clients and form sustainable relationships with new ones.”
The new office also acts as a base for UK-based Power Jacks personnel when they are in India to support or engage with local clients.
India Country Manager Rushi Vyas says: “The team is delighted to have become part of the Power Jacks network. Power Jacks has a long-standing reputation for supplying reliable, high quality products that can be used in a diverse range of applications across many industries. That gives us a great platform upon which to build new business in India and we look forward to demonstrating the multiple benefits of Power Jacks solutions.”
Rushi heads up a team that includes three Business Development Managers: Amol Chougule, Vishal Agarwal and Shaitan Singh. Rushi and his colleagues are all fully trained and experienced mechanical engineers.
Beyond its UK headquarters in Ellon, Aberdeenshire, Power Jacks now has sales offices in in Wangen im Allgäu in Germany and Shanghai in China, as well as Vadodara. It also recently opened an office in Birmingham in the UK to act as a business development base for the English market.
