  • Springer Fachmedien Wiesbaden

Chemetall has invested in a second state-of-the-art production plant in the city of Chennai in India. The new facility will substantially increase the company’s current capacity in the region. “To keep pace with the growth dynamics of the Indian mar-ket, we have built our new facility in the heart of the automotive industry,” explains Asis Ray, managing director of Chemet-all-Rai. The new plant is intended to meet the increasing demand for local supply in the rapidly growing market. “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 for us,” says Joris Merckx, managing director of Chemetall GmbH. Recently the company has acquired the speciality chemical business of Gramos, one of the major local suppliers of surface treatment technology to the Indian automotive industry. Chennai is the centre of an impor-tant region for the vehicle industry and its suppliers.
