Atlas Copco inaugurated 2nd compressor manufacturing plant in India

Atlas Copco, recognised as one of the world’s most innovative and sustainable companies, has inaugurated its new compressor manufacturing plant in Pune in the presence of Horst Wasel, President, Quality Air Division; Filip Vandenberghe, Managing Director, Atlas Copco (India) Ltd. and Rudy Verstrepen, Vice President, Compressor Technique Operations.
Mr Wasel joined hundreds of employees to unveil the state-of-the-art lean manufacturing facility, spreading over 23 acres with the built-up area of 19,000 square metres. The factory is built in accordance with LEED principles. The new facility will manufacture industrial and portable compressors, while the existing facility at Dapodi will continue to produce oil-free compressors and quality air products.
“This new facility has been built to lean manufacturing principles,” said Mr Wasel. “The group continues its focus on India, and we are proud to inaugurate this new facility. This factory will help increase efficiencies, and further support business expansion in India, and also serves customers in India and abroad.”
Atlas Copco also celebrates 140 years of history across offices and manufacturing facilities around the globe.“Celebrating 140 years is a fantastic opportunity to strengthen customer focus and relations further, to translate our values into daily activities, and to capture synergies,” said Mr Vandenberghe. “It is a great occasion to create pride among employees and to make them enthusiastic about future opportunities. Our history guarantees long-term industrial experience as well as innovative products and solutions to current and new customers, suppliers, and current and future employees.”
Last month, Atlas Copco also earned a spot on the list of Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations in the World, the most prestigious corporate sustainability ranking.
