BANGALORE : Capitalising on the high growth curve of the Indian manufacturing sector and recognising India's strong growth potential in high-value manufacturing design space, SolidWorks Corporation is planning to expand its base in India.

 The number of staff will be increased to 90 this year, from 60 last year, , adding employee resources to both its research and development and support centre departments. The number of value added resellers would be increased to 30 from the current 18.

 Currently Solidworks has offices in 12 cities. By the end of the year the company will expand its presence to 20 cities including Jamshedpur, Dehradun, Chandigarh and Lucknow in North besides in Kochi, Nagpur, Indore and Goa.

 India contributed 25 per cent of the total revenue of the company amounting to 300 million dollars.

 Engineering Design is growing at about 25 per cent to 30 per cent in India.  SolidWorks has appointed Manoj Mehta as the India country manager to tap into the Indian market and strengthen its position. With over 19 years of experience, Manoj has held key positions in direct sales, distribution, retail, and channel management at Hewlett Packard (HP) and Philips. He was the country manager of corporate/government sales for supplies business at Hewlett Packard India Ltd. His sales experience is expected to help SolidWorks expand and develop its value-added reseller (VAR) network in India and better serve its customers.

 SolidWorks India is headquartered in New Delhi and has direct offices in Bangalore and Mumbai. SolidWorks has embarked on a major expansion drive in India since last year.
