German automotive supplier Brose has set up its first manufacturing plant in Pune.

The facility will serve both the domestic and export markets.

In the first year, the plant will produce window regulators. It has an installed capacity for two million units a year.

By September it will also produce manual seat height adjusters with plans to manufacture and supply the entire product portfolio locally in the medium-term.

The first project to be executed by the plant is an export assignment for a European customer while the second project will be an assignment for a locally-based international Original Equipment Manufacturer for the Indian market. Series production will start in April.

“Setting up a development centre here in 2006 was the first step in the realisation of our long-term objective to establish Brose in India.

“We now have a local production footprint covering the entire value chain in Pune from development, component procurement to final assembly and logistics,” Mr Ashwani Aggarwal, President, Brose India, said.
