Swiss press maker Gallus has opened two sales and service offices in Asia. Gallus South East Asia (Gallus SEA) is in Singapore, and Gallus India is in Mumbai. To date, Gallus has maintained a sales and service cooperation with Heidelberg, a Gallus stakeholder, and now has established its own sales centers.
Gallus SEA will cover sales and service activities for Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, the Philippines, and Indochina. Dario Urbinati, who has worked at Gallus for many years, has been named managing director of Gallus SEA. He will be supported by a team of sales, service and print professionals who have spent years gathering a wide range of local experience with Gallus products.
Gallus India launched operations on December 1 under the direction of Managing Director Samir Patkar, who spent many years in charge of Gallus products at Heidelberg India. In addition to India, the division will serve Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Myanmar, and Nepal. Narendra Kulkarni will be in charge of service and technical support. Additional support will come from local service engineers in Mumbai, New Delhi and Bangalore.
