The Talegaon facility will manufacture air and gas compressors for Pune’s local market, as well as for export.
Atlas Copco has recently announced the planned construction of a compressor factory in Talegaon, Pune, India. The plant will manufacture air and gas compressor systems for the local market and export. A manufacturing plant and office building—totaling an approximate 25,000 square meters—would comprise Atlas Copco’s industrial campus. An investment of around MINR 1400 (approximately 180 MSEK) will fund the construction of the compressor plant.
“We invest further in capacity in India to cater to the growing demand of the Indian and export markets,” said Vagner Rego, Business Area President, Compressor Technique. “This expansion project is part of our strategy to remain first in mind, first in choice for our customers. It will enable us to reach new customers and markets and improve lead times.”
The facility has a projected completion date in Q2, 2024. Atlas Copco will generate initial employment for over 200 people and add production capacity with time.
Talegaon’s air and gas compressor plant will be outfitted with solar panels and a rainwater harvesting system. Atlas Copco plans on deriving 80% of the facility’s energy from solar panels and 75% of the consumed water from rainwater collection and processing. The construction is in accordance with Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) concept.
