Germany-headquartered tier powertrain and electrification resolution firm Vitesco Technologies inaugurated its new plant of the longer term at Talegaon, Pune.
The firm has make investments round 30 million euro (Rs 240 crore) in direction of the brand new facility, which is unfold throughout 20 acres and can make use of over 900 staff. The plant was inaugurated by Klaus Hau, Member of the Executive Board at Vitesco Technologies, and Anurag Garg, MD & Country Head of Vitesco Technologies India.
The all-new facility will start the primary collection of productions for the two-wheeler market, adopted by varied powertrain options merchandise comparable to engine administration methods, sensors, and actuators, in addition to exhaust administration parts for passenger automobiles and industrial autos. The firm will focus its efforts at this facility on the rising demand for extremely environment friendly, low-emission applied sciences for IC-engines, in addition to electrified and all-electric drive methods.
Klaus Hau mentioned, “Building this factory was a major milestone for Vitesco Technologies, allowing us to provide better value to our clients in the Indian market.” He acknowledged that India will play a central half within the firm’s international progress technique. He believes that home automotive trade is presently present process what’s presumably probably the most vital transformation in its historical past.

With over 25 cobots and robots put in on the manufacturing traces and shopfloor, the ability will strongly pursue automation, digitisation, and Industry 4.0.
Anurag Garg mentioned: “Our mission is to develop highly efficient, low-emission technologies for internal combustion engines and electrification technologies for all types of vehicles in India. For this, we build a futuristic plant, one that is intelligent, sustainable, and predictive. With these key characteristics, we were able to construct this plant of the future in Pune. Several creative projects have been completed at this facility. These projects on digitization, automation, and sustainability across our manufacturing network have helped us to shape the Plant of the Future”.
He additional added, “Due to the growing carbon footprint, we also considered the climate change while building this facility. I am delighted to say that the facility in Pune is operating at a carbon-neutral level and has fully established itself as a driver of sustainability”.
