Picanol supports its customers with both its investments and high-performance weaving machines
Picanol has been serving the Indian market since 1956 and decided to set up its own organization in India in early 2008 in light of the potential and expected growth of the market, with the aim to ensure optimal proximity to the customer, in terms of both service and sales. In the meantime, Picanol India has grown into a team of 42 people, who serve their Indian customers in all of the main textile areas. Picanol has three offices situated in India: Coimbatore, Mumbai, and the main office in New Delhi, which also has a print repair station that is equipped with the latest technology.
Picanol India Director Kasiviswanathan Palanisamy said that this set-up, which is combined with high-performance Picanol weaving machines, has enabled them to acquire a leading position in the Indian market. Palanisamy continued; “Clear proof of Picanol’s dedication to the Indian market is its continuous investment in facilities and people. In this regard, we proudly opened our new head office in Delhi in April 2012 followed by further extension of office space to provide enhanced services to more customers in March 2022. We also continue to reinforce our Sales and Service team so that we can support our customers in the best possible way with all of the challenges they are facing.”
