About us

An Intro to Saddles India

Saddles India's core business is the production of seat covers for different OEMs.

Critical to Saddles India is proximity to the customer, so our growth has accompanied the needs of the OEMs. This has resulted in our organisation being present in several countries and regions, while keeping our Head office in Bangalore India , but creating autonomous companies that are able to represent our values to customers wherever their location.

The development centres represented a leap ahead in terms of Saddles India relationships with customers, allowing us, to affirm ourselves more and more as a business partner, which puts all its know-how to the service of the OEMs from the first stages of product development.

At Saddles India we are continuously working on optimising our products as well as our production processes. Our facilities are certified according to the highest standards of ISO TS 16949.

The protection of the environment is another key target of our corporate philosophy at Saddles India .

Our headquarters and all our are now preparing for according to ISO 14001.
