Products manufactured
Since 1990, Tecno System has been developing and manufacturing electronics products for a very wide range of industries. The firm’s major customers are OEM leaders, whether in a niche market or a mass market.
The company offers the entire range of its services, from design to after-sale services, in compliance with the specific requirements and regulations of a particular industry. For Tecno System, industry and product diversification are its strength. Diversification has, in fact, allowed the firm to acquire extensive know-how, which creates added value for its customer thanks to the ability to exchange technologies, skills and processes across different industries.

10The focus on quality
Tecno Systems has a long-standing reputation for its quality, which is evident from its increasing turnover in niche markets like railways, defence and aerospace, where sensitive operations are handled using control boards. In fact, Tecno System has stepped into the Indian market on the back of its reputation for quality products.

Take on ‘Make In India’
Like many international companies, Tecno was attracted to India after the launch of the‘Make in India’initiative.
The manufacturing unit was strategically placed in Bengaluru to serve an existing client, locally. Tecno System feels that this initiative could pave the way for global players to scale up manufacturing in India and thus create a healthy supply chain within the industry.

Manufacturing strategy
The company follows a strategy to remain in high quality electronics manufacturing with a special focus on segments like automotive, railways, telecom, industrial, medical, railways, defence and aerospace for low to high volumes.

Expansion plans
Tecno System is likely to expand its presence in the defence and aerospace industry. Its target is for this sector to account for 10 per cent of its annual turnover.
Tecno System plans to be very aggressive in positioning itself with the railways and the automotive sector to tap the huge local and export markets. With a rising number of requests for manufacturing services, the company plans to scale up its human resources too, to match its evolving needs.
