Company Profile & Infrastructure:
A group of senior managers from Philips Projects came together to form this company in May 2001. The group possessed technical know-how in the field of Audio Communication Systems and management skills in the disciplines like project engineering, project management and marketing.
The process of formation was initiated in mid-2000, when Philips took a decision to move out of Projects activity that is – Philips Projects. The decision had implications for the customers, who have been dependent on solutions provided by Philips Projects; as well as employees whose careers were at stake. As a responsible solution vendor; Philips wanted to take care of customers’ requirements in terms of continued technical support and spares. Philips also had certain long-term commitments for commissioning of systems and providing warrantee services for some key customers.
The promoters undertook to fulfil these commitments on behalf of Philips. An agreement was formulated to give concrete shape to this arrangement. To ensure authenticity of the systems, spares and services; Philips has provided license to use Philips technology for this purpose. As a result the customers get the same quality of products and services from a group which has vast experience in audio communication systems.
The Company has been accredited as ISO 9001:2015 company.
