Renishaw has won an award celebrating its work in India.
The engineering firm based in Wotton-under-Edge has offices in five Indian cities.
They won the Larger Business Award at The Indian Awards which recognise organisations responsible for strengthening UK-India relations.
The accolade, presented at the UK Houses of Parliament on May 29, celebrates Renishaw’s operations as well as their work with the High Commission of India.
Rhydian Pountney, director of group commercial services is a mentor as part of the Access India Programme, organised by the High Commission of India in London, to help smaller businesses to establish Indian manufacturing operations.
He said: “Renishaw’s operations in India started as just a small office. Thirty years later, we now employ over 430 people, across five offices, including our biggest manufacturing site outside the UK.
“As the industrial economy in India continues to grow, Renishaw is at the forefront, working with customers and partners to provide cutting-edge manufacturing solutions.
“We also work with smaller UK companies, to help them realise success overseas.
“This is the first time Renishaw has won a UK award specifically for its work in India,” he added. “This award recognises the work of Renishaw’s employees, both in the UK and in India, and commemorates the company’s investment in facilities, people and expertise.
“Renishaw will continue to invest in India and to strengthen the relationship at a time when Indian relations are increasingly important to Renishaw and the UK as a whole.”
