Indus Internation Inc
The INDUS WAY has been deeply rooted over the past Several years of business and is engrained in the way we operate on a day-to-day basis. A creed of unmatched customer service has led to unparallel customer loyalty and satisfaction. A privately held business since 1985, Indus has its roots entrenched in the micrographics industry. Dating back to the 1960’s and earlier the facility that Indus presently occupies was previously operated by NCR which headed their micrographics division out of the West Salem, WI location.
During the 1970’s early 1980’s the micrographics industry thrived and NCR flourished. However, in 1985, NCR decided to exit the micrographics industry and close their West Salem, Wisconsin plant. Twenty-five jobs were retained because of the establishment of a new company, Indus International, Inc. whose founder and President is Ameen Ayoob. Indus International, Inc. is a Minority Owned business as certified by the State of Wisconsin and is classified as a Small Business as defined by the U.S. Department of Commerce.
THE EARLY YEARS
The newly formed company embarked on expansion of their product line by designing Microfiche and Microfilm Readers for the United States Defense Department and the Library market. In Indus’s first year of operation, after qualifying as a MIL-SPEC manufacturing facility, they were awarded their first contract by the Department of Defense for the manufacture of 14,000 MIL-SPEC Microfiche Readers for use by the Defense Department.
In 1987, employment peaked from an initial 25 people to 47 people to fulfill the government contract. Indus has consistently tried to be at the forefront of their industry by bringing to the market new products such as a Reader-in-a-Briefcase which was introduced in 1987 and a Jumbo Fiche which was introduced in 1988, primarily for the European auto industry.
In 1990 Indus started manufacturing a Library and Genealogy Microfilm Reader for use in libraries and for genealogy study. The product was also designed to meet the ADA (American Disability Act) requirements for library equipment.
