Honeywell has now expanded its Fulgaon manufacturing facility in Pune doubling its existing space of the plant to 151,000 square feet. Honeywell asserts that the new sprawling facility will meet the growing demand for automation solutions and factory instrumentation more effectively.
This new state-of-the-art facility of Honeywell is established amidst the growth of the Indian manufacturing sector.
The state-of-the-art facility enables Honeywell to provide enhanced expertise and training capabilities to customers and expand its production range.
The center provides an immersive experience by letting customers interact with technologies that make manufacturing safer, more secure, comfortable and energy efficient.
The facility was first built in 2014 integrating advanced engineering, testing and manufacturing of equipment for the process industries.
Citing on the new expansion, Ashish M Gaikwad, managing director, Honeywell Automation India Limited, said, “The expansion of our plant allows us to now commercialize new technologies that are researched and developed in Honeywell technology development centers 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.”
Honeywell products and solutions manufactured in Fulgaon offer precision, repeatability, and durability for industrial applications across the markets.
Honeywell’s flagship product, Experion Process Knowledge System (PKS)—a solution that integrates control and safety systems along with other crucial manufacturing processes, will be assembled at the facility.
Some of the other products to be manufactured in this facility include hybrid programmable logic controllers (PLC), load computers, smart transmitters, industrial burners, gas trains, smart meters, sensors, shifters, and switches.
“The Fulgaon facility continues to build Honeywell’s local footprint and expertise to improve our customer service for the automation business in India,” said Vimal Kapur, president, Honeywell Process Solutions. “With production and integration facilities closer to the domestic customers, we can seamlessly integrate customer needs and specifications into our products and solutions—helping us to serve them more quickly and efficiently.”
Aside from the Fulgaon plant, Honeywell has a significant presence in Maharashtra with its automation and turbocharger manufacturing facilities based in Pune.
