Expanding in India.

A new facility Bidadi, a Karnataka town on Bengaluru-Mysuru expressway, has started manufacturing branded products such as HOFFMAN and SCHROFF to the British and American standards.

Bidadi is a start of expansion in India by London-based nVent Electric plc, underlining the growing importance of the Indian market.

The facility at Bidadi will play a key role in this (expansion) plan,” said Sandesh Saklani, managing director, India/regional sales director-Schroff.

The facility output includes wall-mount, bayed and free-standing enclosures as well as shielded and ruggedized cabinets in mild steel and stainless steel.

Additionally, the facility will produce multi-purpose electronics cabinets as well as server and colocation cabinets for data centers and IT infrastructure, including electromechanical components and accessories.

The nVent facility has a large manufacturing space and a large office space for over 100 employees. The expansion plan is to provide employment opportunities across functions for both Operations and Sales in the country as we continue to grow, said nVent on 8 Feb 2019 in London.

Commenting upon the opening of the facility, nVent Enclosures president Joe Ruzynski said: “India has emerged as one of our most important markets. Not only is it growing quickly but growing in sectors such as Railway and Data Centers where nVent has strong product offerings.

“We have been operating in India since 2008 and are excited about our expansion here, we are confident now is the right time. There has been a positive change in the industry and our new facility will allow us to serve the growing demand while supporting local customer needs,” said Ruzynski.

“We needed to expand our manufacturing base to enable us to build and design in India. To support the government’s ‘MAKE IN INDIA’ drive, we needed to transfer technology and skills to India from our global facilities,” elaborated Saklani.

“This will help us to develop local talent and good supplier relationships for our long-term success,” he assured.

Helmi Srour, regional sales director-Hoffman, elaborated: “India provides an important growth opportunity for our businesses, as well a significant global talent pool.

“The current business climate in the country is quite favorable and the launch of the facility is a testimony of our long-term plans for the country.

“We are excited about the expansion and are confident that it will help us in delivering products to our customers at a faster pace while ensuring the highest standards of quality.”

London-based nVent is a leading global provider of electrical connection and protection solutions. It has management office at Minneapolis, Minnesota.

The portfolio of leading electrical product brands dates back more than 100 years and includes nVent CADDY, ERICO, HOFFMAN, RAYCHEM, SCHROFF and TRACER.
