Herborn/Bangalore, 7 July 2014 – Rittal’s modular enclosure and housing solutions are popular worldwide, fuelled by a hard-earned reputation for consistent quality. Global product availability is driving demand for equally international service and support. Against this back-ground, Rittal recently opened a training centre in Doddaballapur, just north of Bangalore, for India and other Asian markets.

We have established a platform for the presentation of our innovative solutions, and for product and technical training sessions. This will benefit service engineers, sales partners, customers, and, last but not least, our own employees,” stated Helmut Binder, Executive Vice President of Sales, APM, at Rittal corporate headquarters in Germany. Helmut Binder joined Hans-Günter Löffler of the German consulate and Ajay Bhargava, Managing Director of Rittal India, at an official ceremony to mark the opening of the new centre. “Our Indian subsidiary is an important interface to core industries in Asia, including transport and automotive engineering, energy and IT,” said Binder, explaining the choice of this location for Rittal’s second training centre worldwide.

250 service engineers based in Asia

The goal of the new facility is to build and consolidate knowledge, to transfer skills, to exploit new opportunities, and to promote teamwork. There are more than 250 Rittal service engineers based in Asia, providing expert on-site trouble-shooting, and performing regular mainte-nance work. “The new training centre will enable us to significantly improve the skills and the performance of our local service teams in Asia”, adds Martin Lang, Rittal, Executive Vice President, Quality and Service.

More than 40 sales partners, as well as Rittal customers, will also be able to experience the features and benefits of Rittal quality products first-hand. The centre boasts 270 square meters of floor space for the presentation of enclosures, housings, climate control technology, power distribution systems and IT infrastructures.

The Bangalore centre expands on the services available from the existing training facility in Herborn, Germany – the site of Rittal corporate headquarters for a total of 64 international subsidiaries.
