Honeywell announced the expansion of its Fulgaon manufacturing facility in Pune to meet the growing demand for automation solutions and factory instrumentation more effectively. In line with the growth of the Indian manufacturing sector, Honeywell continues to invest in its local production capabilities by doubling the operational space of the plant to 151,000 sq.ft. The state-of-the-art facility enables Honeywell to provide enhanced expertise and training capabilities to customers and expand its production range.
Originally built in 2014, the facility integrates advanced engineering, testing and manufacturing of equipment for the process industries such as refining, oil and gas, pulp and paper, power generation, chemicals, life sciences, and metals, minerals and mining. In addition, it offers a customer integration centre, thermal solutions and smart metering factories, and a Honeywell Intelligrated demonstration centre. The centre provides an immersive experience by letting customers interact with technologies that make manufacturing safer, more secure, comfortable and energy efficient.
Ashish M Gaikwad, Managing Director, Honeywell Automation India Ltd, said, “The expansion of our plant allows us to now commercialise new technologies that are researched and developed in Honeywell technology development centres here in India and globally and with that to widen our product range and meet future customer demand. In alignment with the government’s ‘Make in India’ mission, we continue to leverage the existing local manufacturing expertise and support our domestic as well as international customers.
