Atlas Copco has unveiled a state-of-the-art lean compressor manufacturing facility near Pune, India. The built-up area of 19 000 square meters includes a manufacturing plant and an engineering office building. The factory is built in accordance with LEED (Leadership in Environmental Energy and Design.) It contributes to Atlas Copco's goal to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by at least 20% by 2020.
The new facility will manufacture industrial and portable compressors. The present factory in Dapodi, India, will continue to produce oil-free compressors and quality-air products.
“Atlas Copco continues to invest in the Indian market, and we are proud to inaugurate this new facility that is built according to lean manufacturing principles,” said Stephan Kuhn, Business Area President, Atlas Copco Compressor Technique. “The factory will contribute to increased efficiencies and further support our expansion in India. It will serve customers both in and outside India.”
