Freudenberg has opened its new Regional Corporate Center in Bangalore, India, which the company says represents a further important strategic milestone.
“Our objective is continued profitable and sustainable growth. With regionally-located corporate functions, the Corporate Center ensures that important know-how is available to all Freudenberg’s companies in India. This is especially true of Human Resources Management and Innovation Management,” says Dr. Jörg Matthias Großmann, regional representative India of the Freudenberg Group and CFO of Freudenberg Chemical Specialities describing the Center’s most important responsibilities. “Through the Center, Freudenberg is opening group-wide career opportunities to its management in India.”
The Regional Corporate Center will also support Freudenberg’s ten Indian companies in the fields of finance and insurance, as well as communication and infrastructure.
To meet customers’ increasing requirements in India, the Freudenberg Group has continued to train and attract highly-qualified employees. “Anyone who sets themselves ambitious targets, needs highly-motivated, well-trained and team-oriented employees,” Dr. Großmann says. "We have already rolled out one important HR initiative in 2012 in the shape of the global talent management process that spans all the business groups. The growth market of India will especially benefit from this.”
