In the year 2007, Schmersal India was incepted as a ‘Sales’ only organization and to becoming the youngest production site of the Schmersal group, located at Ranjangaon, Pune, has written a real success story in the last thirteen years. The state-of-the-art manufacturing facility, established in 2012 -2013 with the main goal to provide the Global Players of mechanical engineering with safety switches and safety systems for their local production sites and service units, Schmersal India Pvt. Ltd. has achieved a constant growth and currently employs a staff of 120, producing several series of electro-mechanical safety switches for local use and for export.
Within the next few years, export activities will be expanded to a large extent. The first step for this aim has been taken: Schmersal has just expanded the Export Oriented Unit” in its factory. The EOU scheme of the Indian government was established to promote export activities by granting a variety of (mostly tax-related) advantages. Schmersal India does already benefit from these advantages because in 2018, a first EOU was established – on a more or less humble basis.
Sandeep Sharma, Plant Head, ITC Pune, having two decades of corporate experience in Food Processing, Bulk Chemicals, Minerals Processing, graced the event by being the chief guest for this ceremony.
Sagar Bhosale, Managing Director of Schmersal India narrated: “We started with a single production line in a confined area of 221 sqm. In less than one year we have added two more production lines”.
Now lines 4 and 5 are on the horizon, and the business development plans include a rapid growth of export. The room for the realization of these plans is available: With the E-Inauguration Ceremony of its enhanced Export Oriented Unit on an area of nearly 1,000 sqm, every year two or three new production lines are slated to be added.
This plan is ambitious and at the same time realistic. Sagar Bhosale said: “We are confident that we will use the full space very soon because we are able to produce safety devices of highest quality at a competitive price – and the international Schmersal network opens up the channels to address demanding customers world-wide”.
