Thierry BLATEYRON Procurement Director, DEDIENNE AEROSPACE

"Dedienne Aerospace is a French family group specializing in aeronautical maintenance tools, mainly in the civil sector, achieving a turnover of 100 M€ with 250 employees around the world. Over the past 15 years, the group has opened subsidiaries in China, Singapore, Dubai, Qatar, Mexico, UK. The majority of them were launched with the support of local chambers.

In 2017, as part of the Rafale program, we were selected by Dassault Aviation to take charge of the engineering and manufacture of the Rafale GSEs. Engineering is carried out at our headquarters in Toulouse, France and we have developed a complete supply chain in India to support their manufacturing by Indian suppliers.

We started the activity with a local partner but it quickly became necessary to open a subsidiary of the group established in India in order to perpetuate both our Defense activity for our customer, Dassault Aviation and for our development for the civil market with airlines and maintenance centers.

Based on our previous experiences, we naturally contacted the local chamber in India to present our project. IFCCI has accompanied us from the first day until today on a very wide range of functions:

  • Legal creation of the entity
  • Recruitment of the local team
  • Support for accounting functions
  • Legal support on all the subjects with which we are confronted, in particular the numerous registrations with the Indian government necessary within the framework of our activity

IFCCI now offers a range of services that we had not yet encountered in other countries in terms of diversity. They manage what they master and connect with consulting firms for what is outside their area of expertise, but maintain leadership both in terms of partner management and commercial service. This has the enormous advantage of having a limited number of contacts, with a dedicated team who knows us, is in line with our market, our context and our expectations.

And finally, we have recruited resources who will eventually integrate these functions within our subsidiary. IFCCI supports us to train these resources that will allow us to be independent in the long term without a real transition period.

We particularly appreciated the sincerity and clarity of our discussions from day one. Creating a subsidiary in India can appear to be complex, long or difficult at first glance. But with good support, it becomes an exciting project."

Claude Duranton, Export Manager, Technisem, France

The IFCCI staff with whom we have collaborated have been very valuable in helping us to make our Bangalore project a success. A big thank you to the Bangalore and Bombay team for their permanent support, their professionalism and the quality of the follow-up of the files. The IFCCI has always fulfilled its mission with speed and success, as it has been asked to recruit people with various profiles, salary portage and the provision of meeting rooms. I will remain in close contact with this team and I will not hesitate to advise them for all those who want to develop activities in India.

Corine Laroche, Director General at Promosalons

Promosalons utilized IFCCI‘s Employment services, in April 2012 to recruit a Director and a Sales Manager for its subsidiary in India.

"The Employment service quickly connected us to the well-targeted profiles after screening and short-listing the candidates as per the job descriptions provided by Promosalons. Such profiles were then evaluated remotely from our office in Paris and IFCCI arranged the interview rounds for our employees in France during their on-site mission to India with the candidates short-listed from Paris office. In less than two months, we were able to recruit two profiles and we are completely satisfied with the candidates that are successfully placed in our company. We highly appreciate the efficiency, the valuable inputs provided by IFCCI‘s employment services and especially Shreya Mapara’s most precious help who assisted us in finding the correct profile for our company."

Ajay Gupta, Director- COO of Decimal Point Analytics Pvt. Ltd.

We provide financial research and newsletter services to European banks in various languages including French. It is challenging to locate, recruit and select French nationals with the right kind of experience who are either already in India or looking to relocate here. The French National Employment service provided by the Indo French Chamber of Commerce and Industry is able to bridge this gap effectively by referring French Nationals who are seeking opportunities in India. They also do the initial screening so as to reduce our time and effort to locate the right candidate. We have been very pleased with this service, says Ajay Gupta, Director- Chief Operating Officer of Decimal Point Analytics Pvt. Ltd. who recruited a French National through IFCCI.

IFCCI kept in constant communication with Axens India. A successful candidate from IFCCI was appointed by us and we appreciate the follow up done to ensure that all aspects has been transpired smoothly.
