Grenzebach has signed a contract to expand operations in Pune, India. Officials say the current sales and service branch will merge with a new manufacturing site for the glass and gypsum industry in Pune. The facility is expected to open in the fall of 2023.
Grenzebach will invest $2 million in the expansion. The new facility will feature 48,000 square feet of floor space in the Chakan Industrial Area. The facility will include a modern production unit and office space for sales, design, software, development and service.
The site will also be used for the assembly of conveyor equipment and welding work for annealing lehrs for the glass industry and dryers for the building materials industry.
“The expansion, complementing our plant in Jiashan, China, will enable us to serve our glass and building materials customers in the Eastern Hemisphere even better with equipment and machinery to German standards, in high quality, at local cost levels,” says Prasanna Hegde, of MD Grenzebach India.
Officials expect the new site’s glass and building materials sales to eclipse $3 million in the first two years.
