Now, Caroma has entered the Indian market via franchise route.

Our facilities combine the latest technology and automated robotics to produce market-leading water-saving products.

How competitive is the Indian market for Caroma? What are your strategies to beat the fierce competition in the Indian market?

We are only looking at the Middle to High End market in India and to be very sauvé there is not much competition in this segment at all and with our innovative designs and features, we will be able to make a presence felt in the next twelve months.

Kindly shed light on your expansion plans in India via franchise route.

We have started with Delhi first and then we plan to move on to the other major metros like Bengaluru, Mumbai, Chennai , Hyderabad, Kolkata in the next twelve months.

Do you see any difference in the international and Indian bath and sanitary industry? What steps have you devised to nullify the difference?

The Sanitary ware in the international market is a much organised sectorcompared to the Indian market. We would like to bring such franchisees on board who will represent Caroma at par with international standards. We will expand via statewide franchisees and district wise distribution.

What kind of support will be provided to the potential franchisees?

A Caroma franchisee will get complete support from our side. This will include complete design of the showroom with display subsidies. We will also offer technical and marketing support.
