In July, Sidel opened their new office in the DLF Cyber City in Gurugram, India, just outside of New Delhi. The office space has been created to serve the many clients the company partners with in the region across the beverage, food, home and personal care industries.
“India is an important market for Sidel and one we will continue to invest in. We are proud to have a major presence here with a now state-of-the-art office in a great location,” says Rohit Sawhney, Sales Director India and Indian subcontinent at Sidel. “These new premises allow us to be closer to our customers and partners in the Gurugram area, alongside major players in the technology and beverage industries.” The DLF Cyber City area is well connected in terms of transport links due to the nearby metro stations and the easy access to the expressway, thus making it a prime location for Sidel’s new India hub.
Sidel is able to leverage a long-standing presence in the Indian market: the company opened its first office in Mumbai in 1996, with the second office and the factory in Pune following in 2001, thus enlarging its footprint and expanding its offering to local businesses. Sidel also inaugurated an R&D Centre in Pune in April of this year, opening the door to further opportunities for building innovation and development skills in the region. Over the last 23 years, the company has acquired over 350 customers throughout the region across the various industry sectors it serves, while selling more than 2,600 pieces of packaging equipment to manufacturers active in India.
