Oro Agri has recently seen significant growth in product sales and its customer base in India and as a consequence has announced the appointment of two regional managers. The representatives are the first Oro Agri company employees in India — a market previously serviced by company representatives in South East Asia.
Erroll Pullen, CEO of Oro Agri, explains the new staffing, “Because adoption and growth of our products is accelerating so rapidly in India it was necessary to hire our very first dedicated managers in the country. And, with close to 1,000 retailers and dealers in India it was necessary to bring in two experienced and outstanding regional sales managers to support our dealers and form a strong foundation for future expansion in this exploding market.”
