Schneider Electric plans to double its manufacturing capabilities with the development of a new smart factory in Bengaluru.
With a planned investment of Rs 4.25 billion, the new facility will consolidate 6 out of the 10 existing factories of the company in Bengaluru, under one roof. Expanding its presence to a 1 million sq ft of industrial setup from the current 500,000 sq ft, the new smart factory will manufacture a large scope of products from single phase UPS, three phase UPS, power distribution units, low voltage drives to digital energy products related to meters, pre-fabricated data centers, relays and renewable energy products. The upcoming smart factory will also have 80 per cent export volume capacity to customers in 30 countries across the world. To make the supply chain ecosystem more resilient, Schneider Electric’s new factory aims to foster operational efficiency and reduce cost.
