L&W open showrooms in India!
« on: December 13, 2017, 11:20:30 AM »

Great news for Crickets lovers in India.... Laver  & Wood have opened their exclusive showrooms in India. Their showroom was recently inaugurated in Hyderabad.

http://www.laverwood.in/

The pricing has been done considering the Indian market and dare I say is very competitive! Its good to see brands taking the effort to expand operations globally. Just hope they can maintain the same quality that they are known for.

Website gives the impression that all bats are made in NZ.

Yes, but for those prices and the expected volume demand, I would highly doubt that.

Some of these smaller companies really will do anything to avoid calling a bat Grade 4.

Laver's grading does wind me up, it is a little hard to resist the feeling that they were taking the piss when they came up with all that.

There is an 'indian range' and a 'new zealand range' . Signature and mega reserve were the only bats un the n.z range .
Also , the checkout only allows for shipments to indian addresses .
Won't be long though , and these bats will be ping testing balls , hitting a certain attic ceiling in the north of england !  ;)

They will find it hard to compete on prices..Starting price is INR 15000 upwards while you can get a top grade bat at that price in other local brands

Yes would have been better off opening in the UK guess they have gone for the bigger market.

L&W pricing doesn't come close to other offers in the Indian market. SS, SG, RNS, KG, Protos, MRF, Champ, RS, DSC etc have very good options in the USD 200 to 250 range. SS LE, SG Sunny Tonny, Robinson Pro, Champ Elite, DSC condor flite etc fall in the range of 225 to 250 USD range. Laver legend (which is usually their G2 offering) is priced at 18000 INR i.e 240 USD(approx), seems a bit higher end of the pricing side. But its definitely cheaper than paying USD 299 + shipping for the same bat from NZ. So I am guessing L&W have done their market research before pricing each of these models for the subcontinent.

I think the pricing is very competitive. L&W is positioning themselves as a luxury item. I dont think they are competing with SS, SG etc. and dont really want to go into mass production. Lower prices would mean lower quality which would in my opinion defeat the purpose of a boutique brand entering the Indian market.
