I have a dsign center in India. Located in Bangalore. I am looking out
for jobs such as legacy conversion, reverse engineering of products and
concept to engineering conversions. If any of these services are
required, pl get in touch with me.
I have one in the UK. If you want products properly designed and
engineered and someone who can jump in the car to see you the same day
then get in touch with me.
With apologies to the NG for spurious advertising but I wasn't going to
let this guy steal my corner pitch <VBG>.
Industrial Product & Engineering Design
All except the fact that you can get half a dozen Indian graduates for the
price of one British one, and their production labour costs with overhead
recovery is about a 5% of the cost over here 8-(.
A sad fact of life in the 'West' now. Just about everything East and
South of us is cheaper, and getting better every year.
Doesn't work for everything though, and Powergen have announced today
they are closing all their Indian call centres and moving the service
back to the UK. Story here:
Good news for Bedford, Bolton, Leicester, Nottingham and Rayleigh.
If I sound a bit bitter you're right, I'm a design engineer, I spent 8 years
getting a Masters and have 20 years experience but doubt that I will be able
to continue to earn a decent living at it until I retire because the UK
industry is dying fast. We already source all our production PCB's,
transformers, etc from India and China, battery charger manufacture went to
India last year and it's inevitable that more will follow even though we're
trying to buck the trend by huge investment in automation to try and remain
competitive. But in general the UK's manufacturing industry is bleeding to
death and only has a few years left, once you export the production side
it's only a matter of time before you export design services too and then
what are we left with?, Thatcher's dream of a service economy that adds no
real value to anything 8-(.
That's why I've recently got my qualifications as an electrical inspector as
a backup career, all the new regulation and the reluctance of older
electricians to learn anything new means that it's a booming industry and it
can't be exported.
