Trelleborg Automotive expands Indian manufacturing facility

Trelleborg Automotive has expanded its Indian manufacturing facility to meet increasing demand for its extensive range of anti-vibration solutions (AVS) from the country’s car and heavy truck manufacturers.

The expansion of the facility, which is located in Noida near Delhi, has resulted in a 50 per cent increase in manufacturing space, the installation of a high-tech metal-cleaning line and 20 rubber injection presses.

In addition to the range of anti-vibration solutions currently offered at the Indian facility, the expansion will also see the company introduce production cells for the manufacture of hydromounts at the Noida facility.

The Noida facility is the latest in a series of expansions for Trelleborg Automotive that have seen it recently open a manufacturing facility in Zavolzhye, Russia, and establish an R&D facility in Shanghai, China, which is due to open at the end of 2011.
