GSH enjoys success in India

10 May 2013

GSH Group, the provider of technology-driven facilities and energy management, has announced it will be present in 15 states across India by the end of April, following a number of key business wins

GSH first entered India in 2012 and set up its Head Office in Delhi and has also established an operational base in Chennai. The company identified India as a strategic area of expansion which is experiencing 20-30% growth year on year and has already secured a number of national and regional contracts.

Arun Kumaar, Managing Director of GSH India, has established a high quality team in less than 9 months and now has a workforce of 220 employees across the country, a strong client list and an enviable pipeline.

New customers include: JK Tyres, a leading tyre manufacturer that has awarded GSH India responsibility for its manufacturing plant in Chennai utilising over 70 GSH skilled engineers; Sabiac, a Saudi business that has chosen GSH to provide FM and maintenance services for its flagship R&D facility, utilizing a team of 60 technical engineers: and Pioneer Jellice, a chemical manufacturer who has done a deal with GSH to take responsibility for the maintenance of its water treatment plant.

Arun Kumaar, said: “There are real opportunities here in India as the concept of outsourcing energy and facilities management services is a relatively new thing and companies are often unaware of the benefits that this can bring. We are finding that we are gaining access to businesses at a very high level as they recognise our skills in these core areas, our proven track record on delivering energy-led maintenance solutions and our growing presence in India.”

GSH also has a number of global clients with sites in India and the surrounding areas and is looking to grow successful partnerships with them in the same way that it has in the UK, mainland Europe and the US. It has plans to continue to significantly extend the number of contract wins and locations this year.

“To celebrate the opening of GSH’s first office in India we held a Puja which is ritual performed at the start of a new venture and is designed to bring it good fortune. It certainly seems to be working as the business here is looking very buoyant,” concludes Arun.
