Japan-based electronics and electrical equipment manufacturing company Mitsubishi Electric has expanded its manufacturing facility in India.

Addressing growing demands


The Rs 220 crore (24.5 million EUR) facility will manufacture inverters and other FA products, expanding the company’s capabilities to meet growing demand in Indian industries such as automobiles, food and beverage, pharmaceuticals, data centres, and textiles.

Meeting sustainability targets

The new two-floor, 15,400m2 factory is built on a site near Pune, Maharashtra, and is designed to be carbon-neutral.

According to reports, The facility will have efficient air-conditioning and LED lighting systems that will limit carbon dioxide emissions while recycling water through filtration and greening processes will help the site to meet sustainability targets.

It will help expand Mitsubishi Electric’s production capabilities to meet local demand for products and contribute to the Indian government’s “Make in India” initiative.
