New factory in India

Mitsubishi Electric has opened a new factory in Talegaon in the Indian state of Maharashtra for the production of modern factory automation components. 2.2 billion INR (24.5 million EUR) was invested. Frequency converters and other products for factory automation are produced in order to meet the growing local and global demand for automation components.

Mitsubishi Electric's Indian system business for automation components has been active since the mid-1990s. After acquiring a local manufacturer in 2012, the company further expanded its local expertise in service, support and technology. Since 20213, the products have been manufactured directly on site in India.

The new two-story, 15,400 m2 factory is located near the city of Pune in the state of Maharashtra. It will help expand Mitsubishi Electric's production capacity to meet local demand for products. We are also supporting the Indian government's "Make in India" initiative.

The new factory was designed to achieve carbon neutrality. Carbon dioxide emissions are limited by the use of highly efficient air conditioning and LED lighting systems. Wastewater is reused through underground filtration and greening. This means that sustainable development goals (SDGs) have already been achieved in the first step.
