ROHM Establishes Sales Company in India


Kyoto, Japan – Semiconductor manufacturer ROHM Co., Ltd., has established ROHM Semiconductor India Pvt. Ltd. in Chennai, India. The new company, which will sell ROHM products in India starting on April 1, 2011, plans to open sales facilities in Delhi and Pune.

In recent years, electronics companies around the world have built facilities in India, where the pace of market growth in sectors such as the automotive and information and telecommunications fields has been increasing. Sales of ROHM products in the region have previously been overseen by ROHM Semiconductor Singapore Pte. Ltd., with marketing and information-gathering support from a local ROHM office that opened in Chennai in February 2006. By establishing ROHM Semiconductor India Pvt. Ltd., ROHM is looking to establish a sales structure in rapidly growing India, where it hopes to expand its share of the country's electronics market in sectors such as the on-board automotive, communications, and home electronics fields.

ROHM looks forward to continuing to develop its business globally through customer-focused sales activities.
