Chemetall opens new surface treatment plant in India
29-03-2012: Chemetall-Rai, a member of the Chemetall Surface Treatment Group, has invested in a second production facility in India. The design and construction of this new plant set new benchmarks in safety and quality, while responding to the increasing demand for local sourcing in this growing region.
Chemetall, the global metal surface treatment company, has invested in a new state-of-the-art production plant in Chennai, India. The new facility will enhance Chemetall- Rai’s current capacity substantially. “To keep pace with the growth dynamics of the Indian market, we have built our new facility in the heart of the automotive industry”, says Asis Ray, Managing Director of Chemetall-Rai. “Many of our global customers located in this region require premium quality and local availability. Now we offer both.”
“The investment in our new plant is a further milestone in Chemetall’s expansion strategy and it clearly demonstrates the importance of the Indian market“, stresses Joris Merckx, President Chemetall Surface Treatment. Recently the company has acquired the chemical business of Gramos, one of the major local players of surface treatment technology for the Indian automotive industry.
Chennai, also known as the “Detroit of India”, has a significant importance for automotive OEMs and component manufacturers. The automotive industry is of particular interest for Chemetall, as it triggers innovation, sets high quality standards and feeds many other metal-producing industries. With a modern production plant close to the Hyundai, Ford and Renault Nissan manufacturing facilities, Chemetall is following its strategy to provide state-of-the-art quality technologies as well as local support for global customers.
