Emerson Climate Technologies Partner+ Program Launched In India
Continuing to be committed to the development of Cold Chain industry in India, Emerson has extended its support to local service providers for designing, training and promoting best practices for cold storages
PUNE, India, May 14, 2014 — Emerson Climate Technologies (India) Ltd., a business unit of Emerson, has recently launched its Emerson Climate Technologies Partner+ program in India. Under the program, Emerson will provide professional & customized trainings, expert design solutions and other value-added services for its dealers, OEM manufacturers, contractors and other service providers, helping them gain and improve technical competence to contribute to the growth of the refrigeration industry.
India is the world’s largest producer of milk and the second-largest producer of fruits and vegetables. Building infrastructure and an energy efficient cold chain eco system along with trained manpower is critical. In a relatively unorganized & under developed sector like cold chain, there is an absence of skilled manpower. This leads to ineffective usage of systems thereby increasing costs & hampering food quality.
According to Sridar Narayanswami, Vice President & Managing Director, Emerson Climate Technologies (India) Ltd., “About INR 133 Billion worth of fruits and vegetables are wasted in India annually.
Two of the biggest contributors to this loss are the lack of refrigerated transport and the lack of high quality cold storage facilities for food manufacturers and food sellers. While Government of India is putting in many efforts in building the Cold Chain infrastructure, it is important for the industry to contribute with adequate products & technologies.”
As a first of its kind, Emerson has gone a step ahead with the Emerson Climate Technologies Partner+ program for India market so as to meet the rising and diverse needs of the market. The program invests in classroom training, hands-on practice area and a showroom area. The class includes designing cold rooms, introducing technical know-how and essential troubleshooting techniques required by OEMs and contractors. The hands-on practice area showcases professional equipment such as low-temperature cold room, maintenance tools and compressor cut-away with on-site demonstration. The training not only helps the technician in understanding the increasingly complex refrigeration systems but also helps the technician provide cost effective solutions to his customers.
As a leading provider of refrigeration solutions, Emerson Climate Technologies has always been devoted to providing customers with integrated value-added services to enhance their business competitiveness. Emerson Climate Technologies Partner+ is a service program to take this support to the next level and to help its local service providers address today’s market needs while achieving sustainable business results with high value impact.
