REDHILL, UK—GEW plans to establish a sales, service, and manufacturing operation in Mumbai, India. The facility is intended to service the Indian sub-continent and the Southeast Asia markets.
Malcolm Rae, managing director, explains, "With the expected increase in demand for UV curing systems in Southeast Asia, we need to be in a position to supply demand on a competitive basis. We do not intend to diminish our operation here in the UK as it is intended to continue serving our important European and American activities. Major factors in our decision include the ready availability of manufacturing materials and highly educated individuals in India, all of whom are fully fluent in English and other Asian languages."
GEW already has brought sales and service personnel on board. The first in the two-part start up will take place early in 2006, with phase two completion scheduled next year.
