Indian suppliers look for collaborations in Sweden

Linda Genborg 2012-04-24

Indian organisation Acma, Automotive Component Manufacturers Association of India, is visiting Gothenburg with a delegation of managers and business owners. They are suppliers to the car industry and are in Sweden to be presented to the large companies here and meet Swedish colleagues. The aim is to find new customers and collaborations.

“We see this as a long-term investment,” said Arvind Kapur, president of the organisation, to Göteborgs-Posten.

On Monday the organisation met representatives from Volvo Trucks. A good visit, according to Balbir Singh B Chahabra, CEO and owner of the company Right Tight Fasteners. The company manufactures fasteners and has 400 employees. The turnover is around 30 million US dollars per year.

“In Swedish standards, it may be a pretty large company, but in India we are small,” says Balbir Singh B Chahabra to Göteborgs-Posten.

The host of the Indian visit is primarily FKG, the Scandinavian automotive supplier association. The organisation has been to India three times and been welcomed and received assistance by Acma.
