Key Account Manager, Simon Ogden, has recently returned from a very productive and interesting trip to India. The purpose of the visit was to introduce himself to our distributors there, answer any questions they might have had about the rebranding, and support our partners with the valuable work they do promoting the range of Gedore Torque tools within the market.

Simon visited Delhi, Mumbai and Chennai during his eleven-day trip, and met Paresh Mehta and Kinjal Mehta of Shraddha Impex, Rajnikant Patki of Pneutech Engineers, Karthik Vij and Bharat Bhushan Vij of Dynamic Tightwell, Siddharth Shah of Arizona Tools and Suresh Nair of Micromeasures. All these are Gedore Torque tool distributors.

Simon also visited a number of companies to which these distributors supply our tools. Suresh Nair, the Managing Director of Micromeasures, took Simon to visit Brakes India Ltd, a leading manufacturer of both automotive and non-automotive braking systems and ferrous castings based in Chennai. Brakes uses our switch, breaking and dial torque tools.

Karthik Vij, the Managing Director of Dynamic Tightwell, took Simon to visit Honda's large manufacturing plant in Uttar Pradesh (pictured). Honda India has been using Gedore Torque's Capture calibration system for six months now, and has recently purchased Gedore Torque's RTU Torque Limiters, TLS Pro screwdrivers and TCP clicker wrenches.

Our sales team finds visits where they can see our tools in action invaluable for future research and development ideas, and often specific enhancements can be made for tools following on site meetings and discussions with customers' production departments.

A major construction project on which our tools are also being used is the New Delhi section of the India MetroRail, a brand new overground railway system encompassing the whole of India. The project is benefitting from Gedore Torque dial wrenches, clicker wrenches and torque screwdrivers supplied by all our distributors.

Due to his hectic schedule, Simon didn't manage to do much sightseeing while he was in India, but he did get a chance to visit the beautiful Koteshwar Hindu Temple (pictured), which is dedicated to the Lord Shiva.
