The Indian agricultural sector is vast and while it is labor-intensive, Monarch is looking at finding a foothold here. "We have found strong synergy with Einsite in both our missions and areas of work," said Praveen Penmetsa, Co-Founder of and CEO at Monarch Tractor. “Einsite's mission of making dynamic, outdoor industries more productive aligns with our goal of modernizing the farm. Coupled with Einsite's expertise, they have proven to be a natural partner to establish our presence and new office in India, and accelerate our development operations."
