A U.S.-based consulting firm dedicated to helping small- and medium-sized U.S. manufacturers do business in, and with India.
Why India? Why Visthar?
India is the world’s 5th largest economy. A globally competitive source for manufacturing, still largely untapped by small and midsize OEMs, Tier 1s and Tier 2s.
We bridge the gap. We focus on helping US manufacturers between $25M and $500M establish or grow their business in India.
We don’t just tell you what to do, we help you do it.

Our Clients’ Experiences
“Our Deflecto team found Visthar invaluable when evaluating and starting our operation in India. Pradeep was willing to take ownership of our project and lead with urgency. As our project progressed, he made the difficult calls to push our on-the-ground resources to deliver timely results. Ultimately, working with Visthar helped us avoid pitfalls and saved us substantial time and money. I highly recommend working with Visthar when evaluating and entering the Indian market. Don’t go it alone!”
Paul Thompson President Deflecto – a PE Group Co.
“Pradeep, you and your team at Visthar did a really good job with helping our company develop a sourcing platform from India. Visthar’s Project Management skills and attention to details are great and I really appreciate your commitment to clear and regular communications, to bridge the gap between supplier and customer.”
Lana Gendelman Senior Product Development Engineer Schiller Grounds Care, Inc.
“Beginning in 1992, Essae has worked with Pradeep on a number of US → India and India → US initiatives. Since the formation of Visthar in 2003, our association has strengthened on multiple fronts. On the several strategic projects that Essae has collaborated with Visthar, their leadership has always come up with out-of-the-box and innovative business solutions – an uncommon and valued capability that has greatly benefited Essae on cross-border negotiations and transactions. Throughout our 26-year business relationship, the Visthar team’s ability to persuade stakeholders and communicate expectations from/to both sides has been outstanding. Team members are very prompt and responsive with clients; their ability to plan the details and “project manage” the activities is extremely helpful during all major assignments.”
Prakash Venkatesan CEO & Managing Director Essae Digitronics Private Limited
“Pradeep and his colleagues at Visthar have been helping our portfolio companies manage all aspects of expanding to India for over 10 years; including market research, establishing sales and sourcing teams, and analyzing options for setting up local production (Greenfield start-ups, JVs and Acquisitions).”
