The plant was an addition to their existing facilities in the US and Europe and the company was setting up a new plant after almost three decades. Hence, it was crucial for the company to be absolutely sure of its decision before going ahead with the venture. The client required key inputs for the decision-making process. At the same time, they wanted an Indian partner who could also assist in the implementation of their overall India entry strategy.
