Gandhi Automations participated in R+T Stuttgart for the first time and was the only company from India in this mega event.
Gandhi Automations, India´s leading entrance automation and loading bay equipment company, has set the international ball rolling. The company´s participation in international exhibitions like R + T at Stuttgart, Germany and Big 5 at Dubai has amply cleared its intentions to go international in a big way.
R+T Stuttgart is a global platform for presentation of innovative varieties of doors, door frames, roller shutters, sun protection systems, blinds, gates, security sensors, and such other products. This event is a platform where exhibitors across the globe present the most innovative of their offerings in the presence of top decision makers of the construction industry. Top architects and decorators from the world over come to this event to evaluate business and partnership opportunities with global construction giants. A platform for innovative designs and world-class products, this event is one not to be missed. R+T is held once every three years at Stuttgart in Germany.
Samir Gandhi, Director, Gandhi Automations, says, ´I have visited R+T many times in the last 20 years personally. This was the first time we took part as an exhibitor. R+T is the leading world trade fair for roller shutters, doors/gates and sun protection systems. Gandhi Automations was the only company representing India in this mega trade fair. We took immense pride in seeing our tricolour flag hoisted, among flags of all other countries.
Industry veterans from diverse background visited Gandhi Entrance Automations stall and they were impressed with the kind of product portfolio the company has and they were in awe of its technical expertise. ´Many have expressed their desire to partner with us. We are scrutinising proposals from different companies and we will be meeting a lot of them again to discuss the possibility of export in respective countries,´ says Gandhi.
´We are Number 1 in the domestic market. There´s huge untapped international market for our products. Our products meet international safety standards and with right kind of product portfolio, we are ready to meet the demands of this huge international market.
With increased globalization and countries opening up for business, we see a great opportunity in neighbouring countries also. For instance in Myanmar, last few years foreign investments have increased from few million to several billions of dollars ($300 million in 2009 to $5 billion in 2014),´ elaborates Gandhi.
The company targets to export into the Gulf countries and European countries. In the coming years, we will be aiming neighbouring countries like Bangladesh, Indonesia, Bhutan, Sri Lanka and few African countries. ´I have visited few of these countries and we have better products to offer them, than the ones they are currently using. By 2018, we are targeting 50 per cent revenue from export,´ Gandhi concludes.
