Pune: Renishaw is set to formally open a 4,875 square metre extension to its Pune, India, facility on February 15th 2011. The manufacturing facility at Pune is a 100% Export Orientated Unit (EOU) and manufactures a range of components for the Renishaw Group that were previously procured, or where assembly costs are critical to competitiveness, including cables for the company’s machine tool, CMM and encoder products.

It will include additional space for Renishaw’s Indian customer demonstration and training centre, which was first opened in 2008. The extended space will be used to house larger numbers of CNC machine tools and co-ordinate measuring machines (CMMs) to aid pre-sales demonstrations and product training.

To ensure the best conditions for metrology performance, one of the new demonstration rooms will also be tightly temperature controlled to 20 degrees Celsius, plus or minus 0.5 degrees.

Further operations at the Pune facility include software development, and a procurement team sourcing high quality components from Indian vendors.

The company employs nearly 200 people in India. The extended space will also include a brand new staff restaurant with a 150 seat-capacity.

"This significant investment highlights the confidence that we have in our Indian operations, both in the ability to assemble products that meet the exacting standards set for our metrology products, and in the strong growth potential that we can achieve for our products within the Indian manufacturing community. We have been trading in India for almost 30 years and I am proud to see the contribution that Renishaw is making to Indian manufacturing and software engineering, both as an employer and through our products that help companies to raise quality standards and productivity levels," said Sir David McMurtry, Renishaw’s Chairman and Chief Executive.

Within India, Renishaw also has a wholly owned trading company, Renishaw Metrology Systems Private Ltd, which was created in Bangalore in 2000, plus regional sales offices in Delhi (Gurgaon), Pune, Chennai and Vadodara, supported by resident sales engineers in other important industrial centres.

This expansion will nearly triple the space at the Pune site, which now totals some 7,500 square metres. This facility is intended to meet the long-term growth needs for the company’s Indian operations in terms of product assembly, software development, sales & marketing, and customer support.
