Gallus opens new sales and service centres in Asia
With an aim to move closer to the customer in emerging markets, Gallus is restructuring its organisation in Asia. The company is opening two new Gallus sales and service organisations in South-East Asia and India.
Following a sales and service cooperation with Heidelberg in the Asia region and the expansion of both companies' respective portfolios for their own customer groups, the next logical step for Gallus is to focus on the target group of label printers by establishing its own sales centres.
Singapore-based Gallus South East Asia (Gallus SEA) is taking over all local Gallus sales and service activities for Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, the Philippines and Indochina.
Dario Urbinati, who has worked at Gallus for many years, will head up the Gallus SEA sales centre for the entire region. In his role as managing director, he will be supported by a team of sales, service and print professionals who between them have spent years gathering a wide range of local experience with Gallus products.
Meanwhile, the new Gallus sales and service centre in India (Based in Mumbai) will be led by a team with many years' experience of Gallus products, Gallus India will be responsible for India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Burma and Nepal.
Samir Patkar, who spent many years in charge of Gallus products at Heidelberg India, will take on the role of managing director. Narendra Kulkarni will be in charge of service and technical support. Additional support will come from local service engineers in Mumbai, New Delhi and Bangalore.
Gallus says the two experienced teams will transfer the knowledge built up over many years into the new organisation and expects to intensify its local presence and move even closer to its customers.
