Pune after New Delhi and Bangalore: Octagona opens its third direct office in the Indian market

Activated a strategic presence also in the State of Maharashtra, with the aim to further confirm its position in the country and successfully support its customers

SYMBOL_ALONEA new successful operation for Octagona in India. The Emilian company, an important reference point at the national level in the field of internationalization, in addition to be accredited by the Italian Ministry of Economic Development, from the Emilia-Romagna Region and the Lombardy Region, has inaugurated its third direct presence in the Subcontinent, a market where it is presents since 15 years thanks to the establishment of its first office in New Delhi.

Indeed, on 1st June 2017, Octagona India has opened a new office in Pune (in the State of Maharashtra) thereby expanding further its scope and establishing roots in a deep way in the country,  just eight months after the opening of the Bangalore office.

It is a particularly strategic operation: Pune, populated by 6 million of inhabitants and known as “Oxford of the East” thanks to its important role at the national level in the education field, today it is the eighth economy of the country (among the metropolis cities) and stands sixth in terms of per capita income; Pune is also one of the most important local manufacturing hub mainly in the automotive, IT, engineering, food and chemical sectors and is located just three hours from Mumbai and other major industrial cities such as Aurangabad and Nashik. Octagona India has considered appropriate to implement this operation on the basis of two different elements: the presence of a growing number of customers in the West India and the presence of over one hundred Italian companies operating mainly in the manufacturing sector. Based on these reasons and with the aim  to strengthen further its position in the Subcontinent and follow more closely Italian and international companies, Octagona India has identified Pune as the most suitable place in this area of India to settle the office.

Octagona India, which in the last years has supported more than 300 companies in the local market, established more than 50  companies and has led several institutional projects, can now count on 3 direct offices (New Delhi, Bangalore and Pune) and 8 partner offices (Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Rajkot, Ludhiana, Chandigarh, Kolkata, Hyderabad and Dewas).

India is the market of the future. Among the big countries, India represents the highest growth rate that should reach 7.6% between 2014 and 2019, and the presence of business opportunities are enormous: the Made in Italy, for example, has all the opportunity to start winning projects especially if we consider that our country is today only the 24th India’s global trading partner. Despite the strong growth, the Subcontinent still has obstacles and complexity: for this reason, relying on a qualified local team that knows the market is a decisive choice to win in India.
