New manufacturing facility signals growth in India
As the demands of the modern world continue to change, Trelleborg Industrial solutions is continuing to meet the demands of manufacturers around the globe. To achieve this, we have significantly increased our anti-vibration solutions production capabilities in India with the development of a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Bengaluru.
With an inauguration ceremony marking the official opening of the facility on 24 April 2019, the new 6,200 square meter site substantially increases our production capabilities for our individual Business Units – Trelleborg Antivibration Solutions, Molded Components and Pipe Seals – in the region and facilitates the local manufacture of our portfolio. Employing approximately 100 personnel, the facility means enhanced distribution and reduced lead times for specifiers, while reflecting the high production standards for anti-vibration systems that we have honed over 100 years.
As India continues to invest in its rail infrastructure, our antivibration solutions operation will work closely with major original equipment manufacturers to share our expertise in the sector, ensuring the design and delivery of market-leading anti-vibration solutions. We also have plans to develop an engineering center within the new facility to support this work, equipping our team to support all engineering requirements for the region’s rail industry.
Ranadip Basu, General Manager of the new facility, said: “The opening of our new facility in Bengaluru represents a significant investment for Trelleborg and demonstrates our commitment to local manufacturing. As a global manufacturer, having localized manufacturing facilities enables us to better serve each of our customers with local expertise. Our increased production capacity will also see us deliver market-leading solutions with reduced lead times, making us a reliable partner for customers’ projects.
“As an area renowned for innovation, Bengaluru is the perfect location for Trelleborg’s antivibration solutions operation to establish its new facility. As we strive to deliver the very best solutions to help our customers overcome their challenges around vibration, developing new solutions is what drives us. Through our new facility, we can work ever-more closely with our customers, both to understand their specific challenges and deliver custom solutions which meet their precise specifications.”
