"The current slowdown that the Indian IT industry faces is more in the financial services segment. We, as a company into engineering and IT services for 'discrete manufacturing industries' (e.g. machine building, material handling, pump/motor manufacturing), find that the demand has in fact grown during the last 2 years. Our focus is on the mid-market, which is just beginning to outsource."
