Commenting on the announcement, Krishna Bodanapu, MD and CEO of Cyient, said, “With a focus on highly complex, low-volume electronics manufacturing for safety-critical segments, DLM has a unique positioning in the market. With a strengthened leadership at Cyient DLM, I am confident that we are well-positioned to leverage the global trends to build strong growth momentum for the business. There are significant synergies between Cyient services and Cyient DLM’s business, with a common set of customers and a potential to realize the B2S strategy.
