Dhaka : Titan, one of India's leading lifestyle companies, will expand its reach into Bangladesh in collaboration with the local Rhythm Group through watches, eyewear, perfume and its flagship jewellery brand-Tanishq.

A joint venture agreement was signed between Titan Company Ltd and Bangladesh's Rhythm Group at Titan's headquarters in Bangalore on June 28.

CK Venkatraman, Managing Director of Titan Company Limited and Shohag Hossain, Managing Director of Rhythm Group inked the deal on behalf of their respective sides.

By combining our strengths, we aim to elevate the jewellery industry in Bangladesh and establish the country as a hub for manufacturing Tanishq's exquisite products for the global market."

Under this agreement, a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility for Tanishq's exquisite jewellery will be established in the Meghna Economic Zone in Narayanganj, Bangladesh.

In the past three years, Tanishq has successfully launched operations in the UAE, Qatar, Oman, USA and Singapore.
