How to choose your Dream Mechanical Company?
We have the Automobile Sector, Machinery Sector, Household Sector, Space Sector, Naval Sector & General Electronic Sector under the mechanical domain and all of them comprises two different departments.
1. One of the Department is Research and Development department.
2. The other is the Production i.e. Manufacturing department.
Based on these two departments, we have two different types of Mechanical Companies. They are: –
- Visible Company: The company that does the research and development work.
- Hidden Company: The company that does the manufacturing work.
For Example: –
|VISIBLE COMPANY||HIDDEN COMPANY|
|HERO, TVS, Kawasaki, Yamaha||Indian Aspire parts Pvt Ltd.|
