FFT, the leading market supplier of fibre optic intrusion detection and location products, has announced the successful supply of its 100th premium high sensitivity intrusion detection controller by its Indian-based subsidiary, FFT India Pvt. Ltd. The company has also taken the opportunity to offer its considerable gratitude to Austrade (The Australian Trade and Investment Commission) for its diplomatic and introductory assistance across a number of vital project tenders.
The occasion was marked by a cake-cutting ceremony held on in presence of the FFT team and Leonie Muldoon, Senior Trade and Investment Commissioner – South Asia at Austrade. The ceremony also recognised the continued assistance of Austrade – including direct support from the Senior Trade Commissioner herself, who recently took part in face-to-face meetings and championed FFT’s solutions as part of a successful tender.
Sanjay Oberoi, Country Manager – India, FFT commented, “We are excited and very proud to have reached this considerable milestone in FFT’s penetration of the Indian market. Our high-end controllers provide premium long-range solutions for some of the most demanding and security-conscious installations in the world. This success is no small part thanks to the continued high levels of support from Austrade, who has whole-heartedly demonstrated its ongoing commitment to assisting Australian manufacturing and development businesses as they trade around the world. We are immensely grateful to the Austrade team for their support.”
Leonie Muldoon at Austrade said, “FFT is a great example of an Australian business that is flourishing in the Indian market by providing the very best solutions to its customers. We are proud to assist Australian businesses by leveraging our local relationships and commercial knowledge in markets such as India to ensure there are no unnecessary barriers to effective trade. We congratulate FFT on this impressive landmark achievement.”
