Following success in North America and Europe, Materna Intelligent Passenger Solutions has expanded its international business with operations in Asia, featuring the company’s main product of self bag drop solutions.

In the course of their current and planned activities on the Indian market, Materna has founded a company in India. Since April 2018, Materna Information & Communications India Pvt Ltd has had its headquarters in Bangalore, the capital of the Indian state of Karnataka.

Having their own company there puts Materna in an optimal position to act independently and to serve the country-specific requirements on the Indian market covering everything from concept design and installation to maintenance of hardware and software.

With Shibu Mathews heading the company there, Materna has a very experienced manager on board to accompany the projects in India and to build up the company’s expertise.

Matthews explained: “India’s airports are being confronted with growth of up to 25% right now and have expansion plans to match. However, above all, they have to make the best possible use of their existing infrastructure as extensions and new buildings take too long.

“The self-service project at Airport Bengaluru, one of the most modern and attractive airports in India, is the first of its kind in the whole of India. We look forward immensely to improving the passenger experience and to mastering the challenges in this exciting growth market with established solutions together with our customers.”
