SGL Group Expands in India

Opening of New Production Facility in Pune

SGL Group has further expanded its production in Pune, India, gaining a larger footprint in the Indian growth market. At the new production facility, the manufacture of graphite-based system components (heat exchangers and columns) for the chemical industry has been increased. The products made from specialty graphite from the BA “Graphite Materials & Systems” are used primarily in the chemical and pharmaceutical sectors and increasingly in the glass manufacturing, the pump and the solar industries.

Gerd Wingefeld, member of the Board of Management of SGL Group said: “This investment will further advance our specialty graphite production base in India. It is an important step in developing the substantial growth market for SGL and preparing the Group to contribute to the growth of high-tech industries such as solar, semiconductor and LED. The facility expansion underlines our objective to serve regional markets through regional production infrastructure.”

The production portfolio at the Pune location has been continuously developed over the past years and tailored to customer requirements in the Indian market in particular. Therefore, the semi-finished products delivered from other SGL Group sites will be machined here. The new location will also serve as a future after-sales & service hub for the Indian market.

Over the course of the expansion, SGL Group has invested in new production facilities. The new site is located in the Ranjangaon industrial area in eastern Pune. The newly built production hall, with significantly increased production capacity, has space for further production expansion. Building construction was completed in just ten months.
