HARTING technology group has opened a new production facility in the district of Thirumazhisai in Chennai, India. This important production center began its development 16 years ago. “Back then, it was just a small sales office with the employees initially looking after the sales and marketing of our products,” said CEO Philip Harting. “Today, we produce for our customers in India in a facility measuring 3,000 m2.” The opening of the sales office was followed by rapid growth – especially in the important markets for mechanical engineering, systems engineering, power generation, and transportation. The new production facility is designed to meet demand for HARTING products and solutions in India while at the same time ensuring proximity to customers in Asia. The new plant is built for efficient processes operating at the fullest possible capacity. Andreas Conrad, management board member responsible for operations in the HARTING technology group, added that the reduction of the company’s carbon footprint was “squarely front and center. The new production building meets all the latest standards and is totally focused on energy efficiency.”
