Mr. Bharat Sharma has joined Halma India as the Division General Manager for a group of Halma companies offering fire safety solutions in India.

Bharat is a Mechanical Engineer and an MBA from IIM-Lucknow with a strong background in driving organization growth, having worked in the fire industry in diverse roles of Sales, Operations, and General Management with organizations such as Tyco and UTC.

While the India market is at the growth stage for fire safety solutions, it offers many opportunities for many of the advanced technologies and solutions being offered by Halma’s fire companies. These include wireless solutions from Argus, customised panel solutions from Advanced, new-age smoke and heat detector units from Apollo, beam and flame detectors from FFE. Bharat will lead the efforts of the India team in these companies specialising in their niches, by refocusing and reorganising the energies to seize the opportunities that a fast-growing market like India presents. Bharat’s initial efforts will bring together the strengths of the various Halma companies into a coalescent solution intended to meet the specific needs of customers in India.

Prasenjit Datta – the Managing Director of Halma India had this to say, “While in developed economies the fire protection has evolved as well as adopted niche and diverse fire technologies for safety of expensive infrastructure assets, we see a lot of potential in India where consultants and discerning integrators and customers would like to consider a basket of ‘advanced niche technologies’ stitched together specifically for India. We look forward to helping Indian fire safety professionals – hungry for new technology, adopting new tools to help them as well as Halma build a safer, cleaner and healthier world for everyone every day. We wish Bharat great success in his new role for Halma in India.”
