Customer Requirement

The customer, OK-VISE, a Finnish workholding clamps and accessories manufacturing company (www.ok-vise.com), had been previously directly selling to end users in India and wanted help in finding distribution partners and related research, analysis & strategy.

Solution Process

We set on mapping the workholding industry regions in India and identified a list of potential distribution partners based on the research analysis. Since India is too large an area for one distributor, we have identified the country into various areas. The analysis was done based on city-based vs region-based distributor network. From the shortlist of potential distributors that Indianeer Consulting secured, the best possible distributors for the client were identified and after arranging meetings with them, the client secured partnerships in various regions in India.

A globally operating specialist workholding company, OK-VISE sells its products all over the world,with past sales have been made in about 40 countries. The largest export markets are currently in Japan, Taiwan, the United States and Germany. With this help from Indianeer Consulting, OK-VISE can add India to it’s list of major export markets.

A globally operating public listed company, Exel Composites is the leading composite profile manufacturer in the world. They are a global composite manufacturer using pultrusion technology with manufacturing sites in seven countries.
