Niranjan Gidwani, Chief Executive Officer, Eros Group said, “We are honored to be partners for 50 years with a successful brand such as Hitachi. Japanese brands truly understand and respect long term relationships, where the understanding and the mutual working environment keeps getting better with time. The partnership we share will definitely strengthen further and over the years we stand committed to take Hitachi products to greater heights of success.”
Hidenori Zen, Managing Director, Hitachi Sales Middle East commented “We would like to express our great appreciation for reaching 50 years partnership with Eros Group. Eros has always been there for Hitachi, trusting, resilient and with a never-give-up attitude. Without these values, Hitachi-Eros 50 years' partnership would not be possible.
