Tawi: Fuji Electric India, a top industrial automation and energy efficient solution provider and a part of the 100-year-old Fuji Electric, reached a major milestone in India, with the inauguration of its state-of-the-art and friendly factory on March 15, 2023. Present during the inauguration ceremony at Fuji Electric India's plant were Yosuke Ishizaka, MD; Shivaji Waghmare, CEO; Kentaroh Yamaguchi, Director; B Karthik, Head – Automation Division from Fuji Electric India team.

Shivaji Waghmare cited two major reasons for the expansion. “The first is to invest in latest manufacturing in close collaboration with our parent company in Japan to provide high quality products. The second is to increase capacity ahead of market requirements to meet our customers' growing demand,” he said. “The new facility is borne out of extensive interaction and participation of our executives.

Some of the critical equipment have been imported from Japan to match manufacturing processes between Fuji Electric India and Fuji Electric. We also improved the overall layout of the various functional areas of the factory to ensure a more efficient flow of materials, from receiving and storage to assembly, packaging and finally shipment,” said Yamaguchi.

“The investment put into setting up this modern manufacturing plant in India will fulfil our vision to manufacture automation products, help us meet customers' demands and also propel to becoming a 1,500 crore company by the end of 2024. Initially, we would be recruiting more than 250 employees for the new factory. With all the factors working to our advantage, we are expected to grow over 25% in coming years,” said Ishizaka.
