Hindustan Thompson Associates (HTA) is planning to consolidate its operations in Mumbai. In a bid to bring its five specialist units at different locations under a single roof, the agency is planning to shift its offices to a sprawling complex in the city.
Currently, HTA has five different offices to accomodate its different divisions. The move to consolidate all these offices into one, is expected to enhance the company’s efficiency. Since 1930, HTA is operating from Lakhmi Building near Fort in Mumbai.
According to Mr Khanna, CEO HTA, the new location will have the latest technology facilities which include video conferencing facility, 24 hours internet connection and direct linkage to satellite.
HTA has identified the new location near Lower Parel in Mumbai. We will shift our finance department, art studio, our direct marketing division, Direct Connect, to this venue very soon,” adds Mr Khanna.
At present, HTA’s market research division Indian Market Research Bureau, IMRB is located at Dadar in Mumbai while the head office of HTA operates from Lakshmi Building. Ipan, its PR division, is currently housed at Nariman Point.
According to Mr Khanna, through this consolidation, the agency’s divisions will be housed at a single location to serve their clients better.
