:: FLSmidth MAAG Gear Opens First Gearbox Plant in India


FLSmidth MAAG Gear has inaugurated its first assembly and service unit in India. This is now part of the FLSmidth manufacturing unit at the Bawal Growth Centre of Rewari District in Haryana on the Delhi to Jaipur national highway. With its state of the art facilities the new gearbox assembling unit will meet business and market requirements in India and neighbouring countries. Cement consumption in India has been increasing steadily and is expected to continue to rise further in the future. To comply with this trend the new FLSmidth MAAG Gear facility will assemble selected types and sizes of gearboxes locally, not only for the cement but also for the minerals and power industries. One of the key products being assembled at the new facility is the MAAG WPU two-stage gear unit for coal mills.

Using this local base in India means that over 200 gearbox types will be supported more efficiently. Services such as inspection, maintenance and overhaul for different gearboxes in the minerals, cement and power Industry are now offered. The FLSmidth MAAG Gear facility is part of the new FLSmidth plot covering 70,000 m2 in the Bawal Growth Centre. So far, three manufacturing buildings have been completed. With space for two additional buildings, the FLSmidth area allows for further future growth.

FLSmidth MAAG Gear plans to build around 30 gearboxes a year in the new assembly plant. Throughout the past two years a qualification processes have been used to identify local suppliers who reach the quality standards for the various gearbox components. However, all toothed parts will still be imported from FLSmidth MAAG Gear Sp. Z o.o. in Poland, where recent major investments have been made in top level bevel gear cutting and testing equipment. "This state of art assembly shop confirms our highest standards in terms of equipment, operation, process and safety. A perfect base for assembling the basic range of WPU for vertical mills, and PPU for roller presses and other applications. I am sure this new facility will bring our gearing excellence closer to our customers taking us to the next stage of business in India" says Simon Jensen, President and CEO, FLSmidth MAAG Gear.

The inauguration was attended by Freddy Svane, Danish Ambassador to India along with Thomas Schulz, Group CEO, Simon Jensen, CEO - FLSmidthh MAAG Gear and Bjarne Moltke Hansen, Country Head, FLSmidth India as well as a group of key customers and suppliers.
