Edmund Optics® (EO), leading provider of optical and imaging components, recently opened a new office in the Bangalore district of Karnataka, India. Along with it comes a full-service website and technical support from local engineers. The office and website provide improved service to local customers and punctuate Edmund Optics’ commitment to the region. The company has expanded its global presence rapidly over the past decade and will be leveraging the global infrastructure already in place to benefit Indian customers.
For over a decade, Edmund Optics has conducted business in India through the support of sales representatives and distributors. During this time, the company proactively partnered with businesses developing products to support life-changing applications in the market, such as a medical device company that helps Indian citizens by bringing necessary eye care to rural regions of the country.
As the Indian market grows and continues to gain importance globally, it is increasingly important to offer customers direct access to Edmund Optics’ award-winning services and products. Additionally, to enhance and simplify the online shopping experience, Edmund Optics now offers a designated website for India that allows users to shop in Indian Rupees (₹).
