The Plain Bearings unit of KSPG Automotive India has set up a new plant at Supa, for producing the upstream materials that go into the manufacture of plain bearings. The new factory, which covers an area of over 40,000 sq m, will be chiefly used for producing materials for making plain bearings. One of its features is to allow expansion at some future date to provide an aggregate floor space of just under 60,000 sq m. The move means that Supa has become the source for the upstream materials, its facilities including a sintering plant for producing bronze alloys as well as casting and roll cladding lines for aluminum-based materials used in plain bearings. Joining in the migration from the previous factory in Ahmednagar to the new location at Supa-Parner MIDC Industrial Park, some 75 km east of Pune, are 141 employees. Production on this land with an area of around 60,000 sq m and specifically acquired for this purpose, has been flowing since October 1, 2016.
