India today is on the move. As one of the fastest-growing major economies in the world, the populous country continues its drive towards modernization and economic development. A series of economic policies aimed at deregulating the country and stimulating foreign investment has moved India into the front ranks of the rapidly growing Asia Pacific region. For 2006 and 2007, India targeted infrastructure and rural development-among other areas-as major focuses. As a result of special attention given to the area in recent years, the infrastructure industries have been growing at the rate of nine to ten percent annually. With this in mind, Trimble is strengthening its local commitment by opening an office in India to better meet the needs of the region.

Trimble Navigation India Pvt Ltd., located in Gurgaon, will be the primary base for sales and support of all survey and construction as well as mapping and GIS solutions for the country.

"The opening of the Gurgaon office is an important extension of our presence in India and the Asia Pacific region," said Christian Knoll, Trimble's Engineering & Construction regional sales manager for India. "We see this as an opportunity to better service our customers to assist in the modernization drive taking place."

The new India office follows the opening of Trimble's location in Shanghai, China.
