opened a new, state-of-the-art manufacturing and development facility in Mahindra World City, Chennai, India. The manufacturing site in India will complement the current sites in Denmark and the U.S.
“2018 marks the 10th year of operations for Nilpeter India, and we are delighted to celebrate the occasion by moving into brand new facilities,” said Alan Barretto, managing director, Nilpeter India Pvt Ltd. “The new factory is located... 35 km south of Chennai on the south-east coast of India, approximately 45 minutes from Chennai International Airport.
"The 3,500 sqm modern building houses manufacturing and assembly lines, R&D environment, Customer Care Center, and a large Technology Center. If we choose to expand, the land area also allows for additional expansion over time,” Barretto added.
According to Barretto, the new facility will house more than 70 Nilpeter India employees and will more than double the current press manufacturing capacity.
"Starting out as an assembly unit catering to India, Nepal, Sri Lanka, and Bangladesh, the last few years have seen us expand with shipments to the Middle East, Asia, Africa, and Europe," he said. "With the new facility and the corporate decision to move all FB-Line production to India, we expect to supply more presses to Europe and the Americas in the near future.”
“We will continue the development and manufacturing of our popular FB-Line in the Indian factory," said Peter Eriksen, chief operating officer, Nilpeter A/S. "The product line has undergone a tremendous progress and been completely modernized with various design and automation features. Moreover, we have developed a number of exciting auxiliary features to complement all Nilpeter product lines, which we believe will be very popular in the global label printing market”.
