AMP Opens Office and Grows Team in Bangalore, India
Paramount, CA. — Auto Motive Power, Inc. (AMP) announced today the opening of a new office in Bangalore, India. AMP is an e-mobility Tier 1 supplier based on Los Angeles (California) with offices in Detroit (Michigan), Shanghai (China) and now Bangalore (India).
“We’re incredibly excited to open a new office in Bangalore. We had planned on opening the office sooner as our team had been working remotely, at customers or at partner facilities. However, COVID-19 had caused us to pause the move as most of India was shut down,” said Anil Paryani, CEO of AMP. “We’re excited about the new office. There is a lot of innovation happening in Bangalore, and we have customers in the Bangalore area. It’s a win-win for AMP to have a presence here.”
“Demand in Asia has been substantial with the demand in India driving a lot of positive activity for AMP in Asia. We’ve moved past development projects and into production programs very quickly. The demand for e-mobility technology is very high, and there is simply a lack of quality companies providing solutions in this space. Our focus on energy management is a game changer for our customers. Very few companies have the expertise to support both energy management and charging technology It’s simply a game-changer.”
“As far as our team in India, we are just getting started with the hiring processes. We plan on developing a fully independent team in India that is supporting customers in ASIA as well as global customers,” said Anil Paryani. “In essence, you have 24/7 operations between the offices in North American and India. Our head of operations in Bangalore, Frederick Mathews has brought on some additional firepower in Mohit Chand, Aruna Surampudi, Sumit Panse and Anand Huddar.”
