aluplast India, a subsidiary of the aluplast group, headquartered in Karlsruhe, has announced that it has kicked off a second phase of investments in India.
The subsidiary, which has a long history of operations in India dating back to 2006, and who has been extruding PVC profile systems in Vadodara since early 2016, had informed partners in May that it would be ramping up its operations to meet the growing demands and expectations in the India and Asian markets.
Babak Golriz, Head of Expanding Markets stated “We are in what we would like to call Phase 2 in India. This means more machines, more local production, and more space. We have doubled our lamination capacity over the past 2 months and are now in the process of expanding our system portfolio in India by investing in major tooling which has begun arriving since July. This would reduce our reliance on imports and cut down on long supply chain processes. The final step in 2022 is expanding our storage facility and this would be complete before the end of the year allowing us to utilize around 5,000 square meters of new space for profiles”.
The investment in India mirrors what the aluplast group has been doing globally over the past 18 months, having introduced its largest ever product suite in the energeto neo, whilst expanding operations in Poland, Germany, Australia and the United States among others.
Patrick Seitz, co-owner of aluplast added “India remains at the forefront of our ambitions in Asia. My family and the company have always believed in the future of the country and that is why we started very early, remaining patient and strategic with developments there. India plays a huge part of the group’s future goals over the next decade”.
