The new centre will also support Armstrong’s two Indian manufacturing facilities.
Jiji Joseph, Armstrong Fluid Technology’s commercial director and country leader, India, said: “The move to new offices provides more space to accommodate the steady growth of Armstrong’s employee base in India. It also reflects our desire to be located closer to our major customers and closer to the talent pool.”
At the opening ceremony, Michael Fischer, Armstrong Fluid Technology’s global commercial director, Building Business, said: “We’re committed to working closely with customers and being responsive to their needs. We can help elevate the performance levels of their mechanical systems, meet their goals for sustainable operations and reduce costs at the same time.”
Addressing the opening event via a recorded video, Armstrong Fluid Technology executive chairman Charles Armstrong emphasised the need for values-based leadership in the world of business. “As a values-driven organisation, Armstrong has always worked to serve the needs of customers. We are all very proud of the achievements of Armstrong, particularly how employees in India have so often leveraged their skills to serve customers around the world.”
Armstrong India was founded in 2004 to mainly source impellers and mechanical components. Over the years, the company has expanded into engineering, adding the capability centre and two manufacturing facilities and now employs more than 300 people in India.
