Minnesota-based MTS System Corporation, global supplier of high-performance test systems and position sensors, announced the formal opening of its Indian sales and service office in Chennai. The company has been doing business in India for more than 35 years and, with the Chennai facility, the company will continue to expand its sales and service presence in India, according to a Reuters news report.
Dr. Jeffrey Graves, MTS’ president and Chief Executive Officer, traveled to India to join the celebration and to learn more about the work of MTS’ Indian customers. Dr. Graves also shared the company’s strategy for addressing the rapidly expanding Indian market, particularly the automotive, aerospace, manufacturing and rail transportation sectors. During his address, Dr. Graves announced plans to establish a headquarters in Bangalore early next year to expand MTS’ R&D and IT capabilities in support of the Indian customer base.
“India has been a key part of our global commercial activities for decades and we see a host of exciting possibilities ahead that will generate growth for both MTS and our customers,” said Dr. Graves. “Government programs like ‘Make in India’ and ‘Digital India’ are bringing new vibrancy to the country’s economy, encouraging the establishment of India as a major power in engineering and technology.”
