Showcasing Axon Expertise in the Context of Auto Expo, New Delhi
Auto Expo will be a good opportunity for the Axon’ group to highlight the expertise of its Indian subsidiary Axon’ Interconnectors and Wires based in Bangalore since 2010 in the area of cable assemblies for challenging environment. Space and weight saving, flexibility, temperature resistance, power transmission and EMI protection are some of the many challenges Axon’ India will have to cope with. Especially designed for the automotive market, Axon’ cable proposes Flat Flexible Cables for board-to-board interconnections, flat flex shielded cable assemblies, custom-designed electromagnetic interference protected cables and connectors, flat display connections for infotainment, PTFE wires resistant to high temperatures (-200°C/+260°C) and many others. Axon’ Interconnectors and Wires produces state-of-the-art wire and cable harnesses using ‘made in axon’ micro D connectors or any type of connector available in the market.
French Technology ‘Made in India’
India being a strategic market in terms of rapid development, it was decided to build a new plant in 2 phases: 2500 m² in 2018 and a 1500m² additional building in 2020 at Devanahalli Aerospace Park close to the international airport in Bangalore. Axon’ India employs 65 staff in 2017 and expects to hire 100 people by 2021 to reach 150 staff in total at that time with a total turnover of 5 million € by 2021.
Innovation is one of the priorities of the group which invests 10% of its turnover in Research & Development. Over 200 technicians and engineers are specialized in manufacture and plating of precision conductors, plastics technologies, and electronics. The advanced Interconnect expertise of the Axon’ group allows its Indian subsidiary to produce state-of-the-art wires, cables and harnesses using any type of connectors available in the world or custom designed following customer needs. The company draws its experience in space and defense to offer reliable dedicated solutions in the automotive industry; all sites involved in the manufacture of automotive products are ISO 9001/TS16949 certified. Axon’s 13 integrated manufacturing sites in Asia, Europe and America can handle all orders from small and medium size volumes right up to mass production.
“We want to build a long-standing company, this illustrates both history and vision of Axon’s long-term strategy,” says Joseph Puzo, President and CEO of Axon’ Group
The auto equipment manufacturers market in India is estimated to be 35 Billion € in 2015-16 representing 41% of automotive sales. India now has more than 500 suppliers and 10,000 subcontractors. Participating in the auto expo would be one step ahead for the company as the Indian equipment manufacturers and sub-contracting SMEs are looking for foreign partners (JV, technology transfer, R&D centers, equipment modernization and production lines) to overcome their technological gap, particularly in the face of BS-VI challenges, the evolution of safety standards and the electric vehicle.
