Saurer Group Opens Production Facility In India

The Switzerland-based Saurer Group reports its new 85,000-square-meter manufacturing plant in India is now complete. The facility will produce Zinser and Texparts spinning technology, as well as function as a sourcing hub for the Saurer group and operate as a service station for some business units including Saurer Embroidery. The company plans an official inauguration ceremony in the near future.

According to the company, the plant will manufacture Zinser models 71 and 72 for conventional and compact spinning, in addition to Texparts weighing arms and high-speed spindles.

“The Indian market is one of the most important ring spinning markets in the world, and with the establishment of our new facility in Vadodara, we would be in a better position to cater to our customer needs,” said Dr. Martin Folini, CEO, Saurer Group.

“The Indian textile market is highly sophisticated with challenging customers,” said Ralph Knecht, general manager, Zinser Ring Spinning business unit. “The new project in India would allow us to blend German technology with Indian experience and provide our customers with the latest generation of world-class products combined with our passion for innovation and quality. Saurer products have always been well received in India. Domestic manufacturing combined with world class quality and much shorter delivery time will give us clear advantages.”

Company executives engaged in a lamp-lighting ceremony to mark the handover of the new Saurer manufacturing facility in India.
