Witzenmann India – continues on the road to success

27.09.2018

The Witzenmann Group is responding to the great demand in the automotive engineering and industry sectors in India by extending the production areas of its two sites. In the last 10 years alone, Witzenmann India has manufactured more than 10 million decoupling elements for cars and commercial vehicles for the local market. This success story is now to be continued in the industrial and rail transport sectors as well. Customised engineering and close-to-market production are the success factors of the global market leader.

Worthwhile investments
The group of companies has invested approx. INR 800 million in both sites up to now and thus specifically serves the local growth markets.
The new production facilities for industrial expansion joints and cooling supply systems make up the lion's share of the investments. The latter are used in electric locomotives, which are to replace the current vehicle stock of The Indian Railways.
The automotive and commercial vehicle industry of the subcontinent is also growing at a high level. In order to meet the growing customer requirements, Witzenmann is expanding the existing production to include a liner production, a further hydraulic bellows production as well as a new assembly line.

Production area more than doubled
In Kolkata, a new production space was specially acquired. In total, the production area at both sites has increased from 25,000 sq ft to approx. 60,000 sq ft. Almost 200 employees work at the plants in Chennai and Kolkata. Depending on their position, these employees were trained individually at the German headquarters or directly on site.

High Quality Standards
High standards in product quality and dependability, engineering consultation and customised engineering characterise the success of the Witzenmann Group of companies worldwide just like in India. Witzenmann India has the IATF 16949-2015 certification in the automotive sector, it is ISO 9001-2015 certified for the general industry requirements and complies with the standard EN 15085-Part 2 for the special welding requirements of the Indian Railways.
As an integrated part of the group, Witzenmann India can provide extensive engineering know-how and development resources, from a pool of highly qualified engineers and many years of experience.
