Product Expertise: Trelleborg’s new factory signals growth in India

In today’s rail industry, operating conditions are tough. Increased running costs, environmental factors and digitalization throughout the industry are just some of the challenges facing operators. In India, with continued investment in the country’s rail infrastructure, Trelleborg’s antivibration solutions operation has developed a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Bengaluru, substantially increasing production capabilities in the region and driving greater efficiency and performance throughout the industry.

Facilitating the local manufacture of Trelleborg’s portfolio for the rail industry, Trelleborg inaugurated a new factory of 6,200 square meter in Bangalore this April . Reflecting Trelleborg’s high production standards for anti-vibration systems that have been honed over seven decades, the facility also means enhanced distribution and reduced lead times for customers.

Local expertise, manufacturing and support

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 local manufacturing and antivibration expertise, customers in India will benefit from in-depth understanding of their specific challenges, shorter lead times and enhanced levels of service.

Speaking of the benefits of Trelleborg’s new facility, Ranadip Basu, General Manager of the new facility, said: “The opening of our new facility in Bengaluru represents a significant investment for Trelleborg and demonstrates our commitment to local manufacturing”. As a global manufacturer, having localized manufacturing facilities enables us to better serve each of our customers with local expertise.

Our increased production capacity will also see us deliver marketleading solutions with reduced lead times, making us a reliable partner for customers’ projects.

“As an area renowned for innovation, Bengaluru is the perfect location for Trelleborg’s antivibration solutions operation to establish its new facility.

As we strive to deliver the very best solutions to help our customers overcome their challenges around vibration, developing new solutions is what drives us. Through our new facility, we can work ever-more closely with our customers, both to understand their specific challenges and deliver custom solutions which meet their precise specifications.”

With sights set on future growth, Trelleborg plans to further develop its Bengaluru anti-vibration facility following its initial opening to provide an engineering center for Rail application along with state of the art Testing facilities , occupying a total of 8,200 square meters within three years.
