Bharat Bijlee’s new plant for Magnet Technology Machines at its Airoli campus commenced operations in May 2018.
The 950 sqm plant has been designed as a ‘green’ building, and certification from IGBC (Indian Green Building Council) is expected shortly.
The plant has clean-area facilities, line, type and reliability testing capability, and is designed to optimise material flow and handling. The present production capacity of 700 permanent magnet machines for elevators per month is scalable for further expansion by the modular design and layout.
This in line with the company’s strategy for continued domestic and export growth in its GreenStar range of elevator machines, and also to cater to new applications of permanent magnet machines going forward.
