The regional offices of Trelleborg Marine Systems have in-house engineering capability, provide initial specification and front end applications engineering. The more detailed engineering design, modelling and analysis engineering for projects are sent to the Indian centre of excellence for progressing forward.
Scott Smith, Regional Director for Trelleborg's Asia Pacific region, said: "We have very high expectations for the performance of the improved engineering and design centre in Ahmedabad. It is a centre of excellence with a market leading capability and, in our experience so far, it has provided fantastic support to Trelleborg Marine Systems, coupled with a very quick design turnaround. While our competitors choose to outsource their engineering and manufacturing requirements, Trelleborg is investing in a complete cradle to grave service that maintains quality right through the supply chain."
The business in Ahmedabad, Gujarat, India is split into two areas. The first is the engineering and design support for Trelleborg's worldwide offices, covering Australia, Singapore, China, Japan, India, Dubai, the USA and Europe. The second business area is regional sales into India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh.
Smith adds: "Having the engineering and design aspects of Trelleborg Marine Systems centralised in this way enables Trelleborg to drive cost efficiencies and improves collaboration to enable cross fertilisation of ideas across their global offices."
