Trelleborg’s antivibration solutions (AVS) operation is set to open a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility for the solutions in Bengaluru, India, to exploit the opportunities thrown up by the fast expansion of the rail infrastructure in India.
The new 6,200 square meter site will substantially increase Trelleborg’s production capabilities for anti-vibration systems in the region and facilitate the local manufacture of Trelleborg’s portfolio for the rail industry, the company says in a Press release.
As India continues to invest in its rail infrastructure, Trelleborg’s antivibration solutions operation will work closely with major original equipment manufacturers to share its expertise in the sector, ensuring the design and delivery of market-leading anti-vibration solutions. With plans to develop an engineering center within the new facility to support this work, Trelleborg’s team will be equipped to support all engineering requirements for the region’s rail industry, the company says.
Employing about 100 personnel once operational, the facility will mean enhanced distribution and reduced lead times for specifiers, while reflecting Trelleborg’s high production standards for anti-vibration systems that have been honed over more than 70 decades.
Trelleborg plans to further develop its Bengaluru anti-vibration facility to occupy a total of 8,200 square meters within three years.
