Japanese electronics company TDK Corporation has changed the name of its subsidiary EPCOS India Pvt Ltd to TDK India Pvt Ltd with effect from December 13, 2018. The name change took place within the scope of renaming of all EPCOS entities worldwide after EPCOS AG, the parent company of the EPCOS Group, was renamed to TDK Electronics AG on October 1, 2018. This change will further strengthen the uniform market presence of the TDK Group in India.
The new company name will have no effect on the EPCOS product portfolio, the organisational and business structure of the company, or the scope of its services.
