Lindström, the Finnish textile services company, expands its operations in India. A service centre providing corporate workwear services has been established in Hyderabad in Southern India. Lindström's goal in India is to construct a service network that covers the entire country.

Lindström, which began operation in the Indian marketplace in 2007, is expanding its operations to the city of Hyderabad in Southern India. Hyderabad, with four million residents, is the country's sixth largest urban area.

Lindström provides extensive workwear services for companies

Lindström has brought to the Indian market a completely new kind of workwear concept whereby it will respond to the workwear needs of companies with the help of extensive service. Lindström´s locker service is a popular way of maintaining completely outsourced and efficient workwear service for companies. Lindström will deliver maintained workwear to the premises of customer companies regularly and reliably. Lindström is also responsible for the design, procurement, warehousing and final disposal of the clothes.

“Our service has been received well in India”, says Mika Hartikainen, who is responsible for European and Asian operations. “We provide customers with service where we bear the responsibility for the condition and sufficiency of the workwear. The customers can focus on their own core operations”, Hartikainen explains the benefits of the service.

The Hyderabad unit will serve customers in the area

“The Hyderabad area is an interesting market for Lindström. There is a lot of potential within local companies as well as within our existing customers served in other areas in India", Mika Hartikainen continues. “The establishment of a service centre in Southern India is within our operating philosophy: we want to be located close to the customer and know the special needs in that area”, Hartikainen emphasises.

The manager of the new business unit is Yogendra Bhadoria. Previously, he has worked as National Account Manager at India LG Electronics and held several manager positions with Philips in India and England.

The goal in India is a service network that covers the whole country

Lindström's goal in India is to construct a service network that covers the entire country. In the course of five years, Lindström has established a service centre and started workwear service in Mumbai in Western India, in New Delhi in the North, in Chennai in Southern India, and now in Hyderabad..

Environmental Sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility

An environmentally responsible organization, Lindström has various initiatives in place for waste water management as well as for energy, washing detergent and water consumption. The details are published in Lindström's annual sustainability report, which is done in compliance with the G3 standard of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI). Reducing carbon footprint is on Lindström's agenda globally.

Textile service company Lindström strengthens the company image of its customers. Our service makes our customer's everyday life easier and provides the best value on the market. We are a responsible corporate citizen and a respected employer. Lindström is the employer of over 2 400 people in Europe and in Asia. The group turnover was €249 million in 2010.
