About Avalon Consulting
In operation since 1989, Avalon Consulting is an India-based international management consulting firm that serves clients in India, China, Europe, the U.S., and the Middle East. The firm is one of four entities that make up the Avalon Group; the other three being market research outfit Avalon Global Research, marketing analytics specialists Ugam Solutions, and Germinait Solutions, an artificial intelligence software company.
Operating out of offices in Mumbai, Delhi, Chennai, Bengaluru, and Singapore, Avalon Consulting focuses mainly on strategy, business transformation, and innovation. The firm advises clients in a range of industries including agribusiness; automotive; chemicals; education; energy and power; engineering and capital goods; infrastructure; metals; and pharma and healthcare.
Implementers, Thought Leaders
The firm's website stresses an "emphasis on implement-ability" in everything that Avalon does for clients. This, along with "out-of-the-box thinking," an "inclusive and collaborative approach," deep industry and strategic expertise, and a track record going back more than 20 years—serves as the key differentiator for the firm's approach.
That approach has won the firm some major clients over the years—featured clients include the likes of Tata Group, Murugappa Group, AV Birla Group, BASF, Dow Chemical, Ingersoll Rand, Atlas Copco, Altran, Asahi India, Blackstone, Carlyle, TarunTahiliani, Claris Group, Thomas Cook, Deepak Fertilisers, NatSteel and more.
In addition to its consulting work, meanwhile, Avalon likes its employees to demonstrate their thought-leading capabilities through the publication of insights and whitepapers, which it puts out on a regular basis. Additionally, the firm maintains a blog, where further insights and ideas can be found.
