“These six agreements are our first new customer acquisitions in India after the takeover of contract manufacturing facility from TVS Electronics in June last year. They mean a welcome expansion of our customer base and prove that our approach and offering for the Indian market have been appropriate. These contracts will enhance our business in India in line with our strategy. We are also glad to expand our services in India to a new customer segment, the automotive industry”, says Sami Mykkänen, President and CEO of Incap Corporation.
Incap estimates a strong growth for its Indian operations. Construction of a new factory building in Tumkur has been started and it will be ready early 2009.

Incap is increasing its production capacity in line with the sales increase and further investments in modern SMD technology are planned for the beginning of 2009.
