Voltas to expand service centre base

Planing to launch 'All Weather' ACs, for niche market.


Voltas, one of India’s emerging consumer durable player, has unveiled its plans of expanding its customer service centres. The brand is eyeing Tier III cities i.e. with a population less than five lakhs, where other competitors have not reached in terms of customer service.

In terms of retail, Voltas will concentrate on going stronger in cities across Eastern and Southern markets of the country.  With India being a highly competitive market and housing many international brands, Voltas still has 40 per cent of the market’s share in many states namely Delhi, Punjab, Haryana, Kerala, Karnataka and Bihar.

These plans were unveiled at the launch of new ‘All Weather’ ACs, a niche in the market. The expanding footprint and distribution coupled with the USP has created a market leadership position for Voltas in FY ’12-’13 with an 18.5 per cent market share.
