Atlas Copco Group, a leader in compressors, vacuum solutions, generators, pumps, power tools and assembly systems, has begun construction of its new manufacturing facility in Talegaon, Pune.
Atlas Copco’s new state-of-the-art air and gas compressor system factory in Talegaon will manufacture systems for the local market and also for export. It encompasses a manufacturing plant and office building spanning a total of approximate 270.000 sq. ft. and the investment planned is MINR 1400 (about MEUR 15.0).
The new facility is planned to be completed by Q2, 2024. It will generate additional employment for over 200 people and add production capacity.
Philippe Ernens, President Oil-free Air division, commented on the announcement of the new facility, “We invest further in capacity in India to cater to the growing demand of the Indian and export markets. This expansion project is part of our strategy to remain first in mind, first in choice for our customers. It will enable us to reach new customers and markets and improve lead times to customers.”
Marcelo Kabilio, Vice President – Operations, Atlas Copco India, said, “Our passionate teams involved in designing and making these innovative products at this new factory will help support our customers’ productivity and sustainability goals.”
At the Talegaon facility, around 80% of the energy will come from solar panels and three-fourths of the water consumed will be derived from rainwater harvesting. The construction will be in line with the LEED (Leadership in Environmental Energy and Design) concept.
