September 17, 2012 - Hypertherm, a leading manufacturer of advanced metal cutting systems, officially opened the doors to its first cutting technology centre (CTC) in India last week. Located in New Delhi, the centre is the first and only Hypertherm CTC in India, and one of just 3 Hypertherm CTCs in Asia.
The facility will serve as a gathering point where channel partner employees can train up their technical skills and sales expertise to enhance their capabilities when introducing Hypertherm products to end-users.
Soo Kam Tatt, Director, Hypertherm Asia, said, "At Hypertherm, we recognize the significance of our OEMs (original equipment manufacturers), system integrators and distributors. They are our key sales channels in India and are our end-users' main point of contact. That is why we believe in investing effort and resources in training all channel partners, and we have reinforced this commitment with the new CTC."
From 11 to 14 September, a total of 9 employees from 3 channel partners gathered at the CTC to acquire technical know-how and sales techniques related to the Powermax range of manual plasma systems, and the MAX200 oxygen cutting system.
These instructional sessions will be extended to Hypertherm's entire network of 40 channel partners over the coming months.

The CTC is co-located with Hypertherm's new office, which has been operationally ready since August 2012. This larger premise houses an increased number of associates who work to meet the needs of the company's ever-expanding local customer base.
"Business in India has been growing since we first entered the country in 1999," shared Soo. "With the new office and CTC, and with the addition of more local associates, we are confident that Hypertherm India will be able to better cater to the demands of our customers, both current and potential."
