Elta expands Asian operations
UK: Fan manufacturer Elta has announced an expansion of its Asian operation with the creation of Elta Fans India alongside the recently rebranded Elta Fans Malaysia, formerly Eltafantech.
Elta Fans India is a joint venture activity with local ventilation specialist Airovient, Elta’s agent in India for the last nine years. Airovient MD Dilip Nemani will head up the new operation.
The move will allow Elta Group to further expand its reach across India, with new offices in Bengaluru, Kolkata, Mumbai and New Delhi as well as local manufacturing and distribution.
“We’ve seen a significant increase in requests for fan technology across a range of applications over recent years,” said Dilip Nemani. “Elta Fans India will focus particularly on the key markets of building services, applied technology and agriculture.”
“The creation of Elta Fans India and Elta Fans Malaysia is in response to growing demand for quality fan systems across the continent,” commented Elta Group Asia CEO Nick Heaton. “The new entities will give our customers in India and South East Asia access to a much wider product portfolio and will allow us to develop new markets and industry sectors.”
“Working with Dilip Nemani and his son, Mayank, as our Indian agents for Elta Fans for some time now, has enabled this natural progression to a joint venture arrangement,” added Elta Group chairman David Ball.
