Extending Rakon’s Global Platform
In 2008 a joint venture was formed between Rakon Limited (‘Rakon’) and Centum Electronics Limited (‘Centum’) with Rakon holding a 49% shareholding and Centum a 51% shareholding. In February 2018 Rakon announced it was in advanced discussions with Centum to buy out their shareholding. The acquisition completed in May 2018 and the company was renamed Rakon India.
In June 2018, Rakon CEO Brent Robinson said bringing Rakon India under Rakon’s full control was a strategic decision.
“It now gives us flexibility to invest further into the capability of its manufacturing plant. It will allow us to leverage the full potential of what is a high quality, low-cost operating suitable for growth, and provide the unconstrained ability to align the business with our international operations. Additionally it gives us direct access to the growing market in India.
“Over time we expect further benefits to arise as we leverage the opportunities that his platform makes available to our R&D bases in the United Kingdom, France and New Zealand.”
