Edward Howell Galvanizers has hosted a number of prominent Indian business professionals as part of a programme aimed at strengthening international collaboration and knowledge sharing.
The Wednesfield-based business welcomed five members of the Rotary Club of Bangalore, who got to experience a full tour of the company’s plant as part of an international exchange programme between the West Midlands and Bangalore which aims to build relationships with existing and new contacts, as well as sharing and celebrating the different cultures, education systems, and business facilities across the two regions.
The Indian delegation was headed up by Prakash Nagesh, the owner of his own modular furniture company and a past President of the Rotary Club of Bangalore. He was joined on the visit by Chartered Accountant Anuradha Hebbar, Archana Sahay, who oversees Corporate Social Responsibility for IT giant SAP, computer programmer Pradyumna Radhakrishnan, and Suresh Sthanikam, the owner of recruitment consultancy Honey Bee.
The visit was arranged by Jeremy Woolridge, CEO and Chairman of Wedge Group Galvanizing, while former Wolverhampton Wanderers footballer Mel Eves also attended in his current role as President of the Wolverhampton Rotary Club.
Kevin Addiss, Operations Manager of Edward Howell Galvanizers, said: “The visit was a fantastic opportunity for us to meet and share our experiences with a diverse range of business professionals from India. We had a great time showing our visitors around the plant and explaining both the technical aspects of galvanizing, and how our business operates in general. We were also able to gain a valuable insight into how our visitors did business back in India, meaning it was a thoroughly worthwhile experience for everyone involved.”
