Indigenisation: WASS ahead of its competitors
Since its entry into India in 1976, with the sale of LWT A244s, WASS has remained ahead of its competitors in indigenising its products. WASS opened a liaison office in 1997 to facilitate growing business in India, understand the pro- curement process and potential of Indian industry. Having understood the Indian market it opened a wholly-owned subsidiary in 2010, much before the issue of DPP 2013 (which forces OEM’s to indigenise). Today most of the foreign industries are publicising their effort to find an Indian partner, on the contrary WASS “has already made”, strict relationship with Indian companies such as BDL, HEB, Tata Advanced System, Larsen & Toubro, etc. It has entered into a number of agreements to manufacture critical parts of its products not only for Indian market but also for its international business. WASS treats India as its domestic market and is committed to offer India the latest and the best state-of-the-art products.
