This article explains that in the late 1990s Arvind Dham, the founder of New Delhi auto parts maker Amtek Auto, was worried. The market for auto parts in India was small and getting crowded. And the big U.S. and European automakers were not interested in getting supplied by a modest outfit on the other side of the world. Today General Motors, Ford Motor and Delphi is knocking on Amtek Auto seeking a hub to make automobile components at a fraction of the cost back home.
