CG opens fourth office in UK in Stafford
Mumbai, December 17, 2013. Avantha Group Company CG, one of the world`s leading engineering companies, has opened its fourth office in the UK, at Stafford, complementing its existing offices in Hazel Grove-Stockport, Jarrow-Tyne and Wear and Inchinnan-Renfrewshire. The new office will support CG’s growing client base in the UK, which includes power utilities, renewables, rail and industry customers such as E.ON, SPEN, UKPN, DP World, National Grid and the UK distribution network operators.
This new office will conduct sales support, project management, design, and engineering. The Company has a vast range of products in its manufacturing portfolio and this office will deploy those products through systems engineered and project managed solutions. Immediate opportunities exist for CG, in the existing power industry. Specific areas of expertise are in Transmission and Distribution Power Products, Automation, Oil & Gas, and Industry Motors & Drives Solutions. CG also has a very strong industrial portfolio which could benefit UK companies.
Stafford is home to the computer science and IT campus of Staffordshire University. CG will tap both, the young and the skilled and experienced workforce in this area. The new office will lead to the creation of jobs in the area and in the longer term will provide training and development possibilities, as well as apprenticeship opportunities for young engineers. CG has been present in the UK since 1999, and will build on the company`s existing sales office in the town.
Avantha Group Company CG`s Regional VP, EMEA, Mark Wetton said: "We have chosen Stafford for our new UK office because it has a long-established and successful engineering tradition in High Voltage Power, Transmission and Distribution Grid Systems. This aligns very well with our growth plans for the UK. The UK is a significant opportunity for CG, considering the large investments announced in the National Grid transmission and distribution infrastructure, power generation from renewable sources, and the country`s rail network. I believe that the Stafford office will help us better meet the needs of our UK customers, while enabling us to accelerate our growth plans here."
