Its aimed at servicing customers in the western region. Apart from its office in Chandigarh, it also has an office in Tirupur that caters to the south Indian markets. The regional office at Thane west is headed by Sanjay Chawla, Sales Director.
India is the 2nd largest market for Groz-Beckert, and a strong presence has been maintained here for more than 50-years through its wholly owned subsidiary Groz-Beckert Asia. As the knitting and garment industry evolved over period, the company has kept pace by steadily expanding its distribution network across the country, and opening branch offices in important knitting centres of Ludhiana and Tirupur.
"Taking its commitment to customer service a step further, the company has recently inaugurated two new regional offices at Gurgaon and Thane, in addition to the already established office at Tirupur. These regional sales offices will represent all divisions of the company, i.e., knitting, weaving, felting, tufting, and sewing," said Chawla.
The company will also focus on seminars and workshops on products application in order to enhance the knowledge levels of the industry people, said Anton Reinfelder, Managing Director of Groz-Beckert Asia. "These new regional offices will help the company to forge closer ties with our customers, understand their needs and develop new products and applications," said Anton.

With the aim of attracting more clicks and increasing sales, Flipkart, a multi brand e-retailer has recently expanded in the women’s apparel segment. In fact Flipkart is a later starter in this space as competitors such as Jabong, Yebhi, Tradus, Myntra, Fashionara, DonebyNone, Zovi among others have already captured market share.
Flipkart’s expansion strategy is being sighted as a good example of the way Indian ecommerce market is evolving in terms of category adoption from online buyers and how the market is maturing from comparable goods demands online to subjective good demands online. Each category expansion for Flipkart is driven thorough market research and feasibility judgment.
For horizontal retailers, the idea is to acquire the customer with low ticket size, competitively priced products and make them move up the value chain towards high margins product and high ticket size. In the case of Flipkart, the foundation was laid by book sales, which ‘may be’ at negative margins for now, electronics further helped it in increasing the ticket size per transaction although still at low-to-negative margins. And next was to increase the categories by providing further options and compelling purchases to improve margins, of which apparels, digital goods, and mixing and pushing of private labels are seen as positive examples.

With his spring/summer 2013 collection, Elton Fernandez makes his debut in the world of fashion design. His signature label was launched at the Mumbai store Atosa and Fernandez aims to celebrate the simple and arresting nature of a woman's sensuality through this line.
Fernandez has always believed in following his heart and therein lies his mantra for success. A graduate in English literature, political science and world history, he took a detour by opting to pursue a full-time freelance career in makeup and hair. In a short span of time, his clientele expanded to include actors Sonam Kapoor, Sonakshi Sinha, Kalki Koechlin and Shruti Haasan. Bollywood actor Poorna Jagannathan sported an outfit from his first collection at the Mumbai premiere of ‘Midnight's Children’ she wore a two-toned dress with white organza embroidery.
The influences for his first eponymous clothing brand come from those early days of his life and memories of the past.
