Grundfos India unveils new manufacturing plant in Gujarat
Grundfos, a specialist in the manufacturer of energy-efficient pumps in the world, has announced that its subsidiary Grundfos Pumps India Pvt (Grundfos India) will be launching a new manufacturing facility in Dantali, Gujarat.
The facility is spread across two acres and will supply stainless steel products, boosters, and box products to India’s western and northern regions.
This new facility, envisioned on the ‘Make in India’ model, will also export stainless steel components to Grundfos’ global facilities in Europe, Americas and China. The state-of-the-art facility has been developed based on Grundfos’ designs and specifications.
The facility was inaugurated by Grundfos leaders from its headquarters in Denmark and Asia Pacific Regional Headquarters in Singapore.
Ranganath N. K., managing director, Grundfos India said, “This is a key strategic move for Grundfos India. By setting up this facility we strengthen our presence and network in the western and northern regions of India. We aim to achieve INR 2 billion by 2018 from this plant alone.
“Staying true to the company’s sustainability focus, this facility will allow Grundfos to save on transportation time and distance, thereby reducing the impact on the environment through these CO2 reductions. This also means that our customers in the west and north of India will get quicker deliveries of their products as well.”
