C&K has opened a new EWIS (Electrical Wiring Interconnection System) manufacturing facility in Kanpur, U.P. India to provide local customers and channel partners with improved service, including greater responsiveness and shorter design cycles. The new facility not only supports C&K’s traditional electromechanical switch, sensor and high-reliability connector product offering, but also provides local customers with design support for customized switch and complex harness needs.

In addition, the facility supports the newly established C&K Aerospace division, which is focused on delivering complete interconnect system solutions that meet the demanding specifications associated with switches, connectors and cable assemblies for aerospace applications.


C&K has also opened a new India Sales office in Chennai, T.N. further expanding their support to customers across India.

In addition to the new facility and sales office, C&K is also pleased to announce the appointment of Mr. Palanivelan Subramanian as General Manager in India. Mr. Subramanian joined C&K as Country Manager 12 months ago, prior to that being Head of TE’s Industrial Business Unit in India.

“C&K is proud to enhance our global footprint with the new facility in Kanpur and Sales Office in Chennai, India. This investment in India is part of C&K strategy to grow across the globe by providing excellent local support. These new facilities demonstrate our continued commitment to customers and channel partners. By integrating sales, service and support, C&K is dedicated to enriching the customer experience by streamlining the design and purchasing processes,” said Mr. Subramanian.

C&K is a leading supplier of switches, sensors and connectors serving a wide range of markets including automotive, aerospace, consumer, industrial, medical and more. The newly formed C&K Aerospace division, born out of the acquisition of EIS Electronics, enables C&K to offer complete system solutions through its electrical wiring interconnect system (EWIS) capabilities, avionics switch and ESCC, NASA and MIL certified space connector business.
