UK’s largest diagnostics firm showcases strategic partnership in business development trip with renowned Irish Pianist
Leading global diagnostics company Randox Laboratories has raised the curtain on a drive to further develop business in India this week.
The Northern Ireland headquartered company is leveraging its partnership with celebrated Pianist Barry Douglas to strengthen strategic relationships within India’s leading markets. Barry performed a recital alongside the Symphony Orchestra of India on Tuesday, the opening night of their new season.
Senior management from Randox’s product teams are currently spending time in India. Along with holding key business meetings with some of their already existing long term loyal customers, they are also meeting with new and potential customers, and looking at other ways to further grow sales and corporate activity in the country.
This trip will also mark the start of a major recruitment drive for Randox, with several product teams expanding their sales forces. These new recruits are in addition to the 100 staff currently employed throughout India and 1300 throughout the world.
Leading the delegation, Randox Global Head of Sales Julie Gray said, “Randox has had a significant presence in India for over a decade and, since the opening of our manufacturing facility in Bangalore in 2012, we now employ almost 100 people across the country and have a very loyal customer base. As one of the world’s major growth economies, the scale of the market means there is always room for new business opportunities, and with that comes new employment opportunities.
“Our recently secured contract to provide clinical instruments to the Rajasthan government for their free healthcare initiative, is further evidence that Indian confidence and loyalty in the Randox brand continues to grow. We are very excited for our future here, and for how we can contribute to healthcare in India.
“We are delighted to employ our close working relationship Barry Douglas to enhance this business development trip in India. His following within classical music is ever increasing, and as the first international winner of the Tchaikovsky Piano Competition gold medal, his reputation precedes him.
“Having joined Barry in our other global markets such as Russia, Mexico, China and now India, we know that his status as one of Ireland’s premier cultural assets is firmly established. Sharing his music in these overseas markets helps us grow international links and cement business relationships.”
