Yesterday, Northern Tool + Equipment (NTE) hosted an inauguration of their new facility after outgrowing their previous space. The retailer came to Hyderabad in 2021 and partnered with ANSR to establish its second headquarters. The retailer has since seen growth across its diverse workgroups, ranging from engineering design, strategic sourcing, supply chain, IT infrastructure, data analytics CoE and corporate shared services.
The new facility was inaugurated by Northern Tool + Equipment Co-Owner, Wade Kotula, CEO, Suresh Krishna, Principal Secretary to Government of Telangana I&C and ITE&C, Jayesh Ranjan, and the Consular Chief at the U.S. Consulate General in Hyderabad, Rebekah Dramé. Also, in attendance were Northern Tool’s SVP of Information Technology, Ross Gilbertson and Managing Director, India, Terrence John.
“Northern Tool + Equipment India is a force multiplier ensuring we leverage talent, technology and innovation in this global ecosystem – helping to boldly build what’s next. We’re thrilled to open our new facility for India headquarters and give our highly qualified and phenomenal innovation and technology teams the space to continue to bring new ideas and solutions to the table for Northern Tool + Equipment and our customers,” said Krishna.
Located in Block A of the International Tech Park in Hyderabad, the new facility puts Northern Tool + Equipment at the heart of the city’s technology hub, allowing strategic integration with innovation partners such as T-Works, India’s largest prototyping facility in the world. The new workspace is also a reflection of Northern Tool, its ethos and core values and allows for greater collaboration, an important drive as the retailer focuses on the future.
