Harkness Screens Expands Operations into India

Harkness Screens, the world’s leading manufacturer of cinema screens has announced expansion of its global operations into India. The investment has seen local distribution facilities opened immediately in Bangalore with a full manufacturing plant scheduled to open by mid-2013.

The new facility will allow Harkness Screens to provide its industry leading brands such as SpectralTM and Perlux® Digital with shorter lead times to better serve local demand in India and across the continent. Aligned to this, local customers will also benefit from lower shipping costs from factory to final location.

“With digital conversion well and truly under way in India, there is as increasing demand for our custom screens,” says Richard Mitchell, Harkness Screens, Worldwide Marketing Manager. “In order to meet that demand and increase speed of customer deliveries, we made the strategic decision to open new facilities in India..”

As part of this expansion, Harkness Screens is delighted to announce the appointment of Mr Sriram Sistla as Director of Sales for India. Mr Sistla joins Harkness Screens having spent 18 years working within the cinema industry for companies including Cinerama, MRH Digital Systems and Harman International.

“Sriram joins us with a wealth of knowledge and understanding not just of the cinema industry but of the local market. His strong links with customers in the territory means that we are already able to forge stronger relationships with our customers by understanding their requirements. The investment we are making to increase our presence in India is a reinforcement of Harkness Screens' commitment to providing our customers and the cinema industry throughout the entire world with the very best projection surfaces,” says Andrew Robinson, Managing Director of Harkness Screens.
