P3 North America adds a dozen new employees in Troy

P3 North America hasn’t stopped growing since it opened as the U.S. arm of the P3 Group in Troy in 2005.

The automotive supplier has gone from a handful of employees to more than 100 today. It hired about a dozen people in 2012 after it notched an 18 percent revenue increase that year.

“We have had steady growth, even throughout the recession,” says Samit Ghosh, president of P3 North America. “We took full advantage of the upswing in 2010.”

P3 North America focuses mainly on providing consulting services in the aerospace and automotive industries. In the auto sector it specializes in infotainment and alternative powertrain work for hybrid and electric vehicles. The company expects to grow in 2013 through additional work from its existing customer base, which should allow it to notch another year of double-digit revenue growth and hiring.

“We’re growing even more aggressively this year,” Ghosh says.
