Bangalore, Oct 10 (UNI) Meiko Maschinenbau GmbH, the 164 million euro global leader in commercial dishwashing machines and systems, has set up a technical and marketing support centre in the city.
The 80 year-old German firm specialises in cleaning technology for industrial canteens, star hotels, airline caterers and corporate hospitals.
Meiko was now looking at India in the long haul as the manufacturing and services sectors have been expanding their operations across the country. The support centre in Bangalore would provide training and servicing for majority of its 300-odd customers in various locations.
"The game plan is to be closer to the customer and speed up installation of the machines shipped from Offenburg in Germany and reach out to customers faster for support services," Meiko India MD and CEO Virendra Dutt said in a release here today.
In the IT sector, global software majors such as Infosys Technologies, Wipro, TCS, Satyam and multinationals like IBM, Microsoft, GE, Intel and Accenture had been among those who had installed Meiko machines in their kitchens.
