This week, Valuechain’s CEO Tom Dawes and Global Channels Director Jim Walters jetted off to Bangalore, India to attend this year’s Aero India event. The exciting airshow has been taking place from the 14th to the 18th February this year and sees a huge participation of 549 companies, 270 being Indian based and the other 279 foreign.
Aero India is a widely-known airshow and aviation exhibition that takes place in Bengaluru in India at the Yelahanka Air Force Station every other year. Many prestigious organisations including The Defence Ministry of India, Indian Air Force, Defence Research and Development Organisation, Department of Space, the Union Civil Aviation Ministry and many others all joined forces to organise the airshow, making it the largest in Asia.
10 successful editions of Aero India have taken place since 1996 and this year Valuechain couldn’t miss out on the opportunity to boost our business opportunities and take advantage of the significant platform the show gives to attending companies. As well as the benefits for our business, Valuechain also had the chance to meet and interact with fellow industry experts and organisations from across the globe. Tom and Jim were able to view the latest in smart manufacturing technology.
One of our partner companies, Genser Aerospace, were attending the event, so earlier today our Global Channels Director Jim got the privilege of meeting up with them to discuss further collaboration.
Genser started up as a small company in 1997 in Bangalore, India by industry experts wanting to connect the Indian Aerospace to the Global Aerospace Industry. Their vision was to deliver Aerospace engineering and consulting services across the spectrum of design, manufacturing and ‘in-service support’ as well as developing the best in the industry resources across the globe. Genser want to grow and expand their brand to become recognised globally among top ranking companies and connect the Indian Aerospace to the rest of the world.
Valuechain partnered with Genser at Aero India 2015 after signing an agreement to work alongside each other in the field of supply chain solutions. As part of the co-operation agreement signed in 2015, Genser set up a test laboratory manned by production and software engineers testing all of the Valuechain products and their upgrades for implementation in Genser’s manufacturing supply chain and across its extended enterprise. After only starting small a decade back, Genser have now become one of the leading services firms and after partnering with Valuechain they now have a subsidiary in the United Kingdom.
When reuniting with Genser earlier today, Jim Walters signed an advanced scoping agreement with Genser for collaboration in the UK, India and Europe. Our partnership with Genser will be extended to support facilities for them in the UK as well as for our range of Valuechain products in India from a dedicated facility there. We look forward to our future of collaboration with Genser and the opportunities that will arise from our partnership.
