Web Spiders, a Kolkata based software consulting company, has acquired 51 percent stake in Netwings Infotech Pvt Ltd (NIPL), which is engaged in delivering fibre optic networking and GIS solutions. The development marks company’s entry into systems integration, which was earlier only into manufacturing and software.
Speaking to VCCircle.com, Siddharth Jhunjhunwala CEO, Web Spiders (India) Pvt Ltd said, “Netwings is the system integration provider of fibre optics, Supreme is the manufacturer of fibre optic accessories, where as Web Spiders is the software manufacturer. With this acquisition, we have created a very synergistic end-to-end platform from manufacturing to software and systems integration for our customers.”
Elaborating the plan ahead, Jhunjhunwala pointed out that each entity is focused on its own mission and the group is looking forward for large government contracts for the implementation of networks. “We are actively building large government contracts for the implementation of network services. Besides, we have done the Kolkata Wipro Centre and are in talks with Tata Motors and are primarily focusing on e-Governance and large activity projects in Geographic Information System (GIS) and weather services.”

However, Jhunjhunwala mentioned that the company is working aggressively to tap domestic market and want a pan-India presence. “We want a pan-India presence. Power and government are the two main thrust areas of the company as of now,” asserted Jhunjhunwala.
