Global animal nutrition and health company Alltech has officially opened its second regional Indian office in Kolkata.
The brand new building, which also includes a 7,000-square-foot warehouse, will be used as a support center for the company’s business operations in East and Northeast India as well as Nepal.
Located on the east bank of the Hooghly River, Kolkata is the capital of the West Bengal. The city is the commercial, cultural and educational centre of East India with the country’s oldest operating port. It is also an important area for the Indian poultry, dairy, aquaculture and equine industries. Alltech’s newly opened facility will be used to support the company’s logistics and sales operations to Nepal, Bihar, Chhattisgarh, Orissa and North Eastern States excluding the West Bengal area.
“We have hired eight full time employees at the new office in order to give the highest level of support to our customers in the region,” said Sayed Aman, regional manager, Alltech South Asia.
Alltech entered the Indian market in 2001 and shortly after developed the business to become a multimillion dollar region for the company. Today, with over 100 employees as well as two strategically located production facilities, Alltech India is one of the fastest growing regions for Alltech.
“Whether looking to improve the yield of maize for silage, get more milk from cows, improve chickens’ health status or enrich eggs with DHA, Alltech offers solutions and services to Indian producers and farmers tailored to bring performance and profitability to their operation,” said Matthew Smith, regional director, Alltech Asia Pacific. “With our newly opened facility in Kolkata, Alltech will be even more well-placed to support farmers in reaching these goals.”
