On March 9 and 10, 2011, Siemens VAI organised the supplier chain conference, held at ITC SONAR Hotel in Kolkata. Around 40 reputed companies were invited from all across India for the presentation and exhibition. At present, they are looking forward to attractive and sustainable business opportunities globally. Siemens has three sectors, fifteen divisions and is represented in 190 countries and now recognises India as a significant growth market in an industry, engineering and healthcare business. With identifying and strengthening sourcing opportunities in India, it is expecting that suppliers will not only have the capability to support domestic projects handled by Siemens but will also become suppliers for offshore projects where Indian competitiveness and technological advantage can be enjoyed in other regions.
The Premier stall was visited by all the delegates from Siemens. The delegates were quite impressed with our present infrastructure and facilities developed over the years for developing heavy engineering jobs.
After the presentation, Mr. Sil, CEO - procurement, Siemens India, personally visited us and assured a long-term association with Premier.
Now Premier can take advantage of this for executing turnkey projects as well as in wind energy sector
