Ingeteam, an independent global supplier of electrical conversion and turbine control equipment, has gathered last week 75 key suppliers at its cutting-edge new factory in Chennai, with the triple objective to tighten relationships, increase supply chain collaboration and continuous improvement.
“Due to the expected increase in demand capacity in both wind and solar solutions, there was a lot of interest from our suppliers in India to strengthen their relationship with Ingeteam and improve their operational knowledge of our production processes. That is why we decided to gather representatives of more than 75 domestic and foreign suppliers at our new factory, with the clear objective to increase supply chain performance”, said Sukhwinder Pal Singh, Managing Director of Ingeteam India.
Ingeteam’s Indian facility was established last year in the vicinity of Chennai to satisfy the demand for the company’s wind and solar solutions. The factory is equipped with state-of-the-art production technology and serves both the domestic and international markets.
Speaking on the occasion, David Sole, Managing Director of the Ingeteam Group, also addressed the audience: “Our Indian production centre is one of the cornerstones of Ingeteam’s global operations. We are well aware that our success here depends on the performance of our supply chain. And performance is about understanding each other’s needs and adapting to each other’s challenges. Both our Indian and global customer base expects a seamless collaboration leading to the most competitive, flexible, innovative and reliable products on the market.”
