Renishaw, recently opened a new technology centre in Bengaluru, India. It officially opened the new facility on December 7, 2022, and the new site is now providing customers with access to demonstrations of the company’s solutions for metrology, and material analysis.
After experiencing growing demand in the Indian markets, the company made the decision to move to a new 12,000 square feet facility which houses its technical, operations and sales and marketing teams, warehouse and technology centre. Located on the ground floor of the new facility, the centre allows companies to work with the engineers to understand how their processes can become more efficient and productive using the offered technologies. Visitors to the centre will be able to view demonstrations of the company’s extensive product portfolio, including its advanced metrology equipment for process control applications, such as the EquatorTM flexible gauge and scanning systems for CNC machine tools.
Those attending the inauguration day included William Lee, CEO, Renishaw; Andy Buttrey, President, Renishaw APAC and Paul Gallagher, VP & MD, Renishaw APAC. Other guests included P Ramadas, MD, Ace Manufacturing Systems & Past President, Indian Machine Tool Manufacturer’s Association, and over 30 CEOs, Managing Directors and Vice Presidents from renowned manufacturing companies operating in India.
Expressing his views, Paul Weaver, Director – Sales & Marketing, Renishaw Metrology Systems, explained, “Last year India rose to number two in the Global Manufacturing Index, showing how the market is growing in the region. We opened our first training and demonstration centre in Pune in 2008 and we thought now was the right time to increase our investment in India. The new facility is crucial in enabling us to keep up with the country’s industrial growth and continue to expand our customer base.”
Moving further, Gallagher, commented, “At the inauguration day, we showcased our advanced systems to fellow manufacturers, partners and potential customers, and highlighted our long-term commitment to India, where we have operated since the 1980s. We demonstrated how Renishaw’s dedicated team can support and provide the technical training people need to get the most out of their manufacturing and metrology processes.”
On December 7, 2022, the guests at the inauguration cut the ribbon to officially open the facility and unveiled a commemorative plaque. After the ribbon cutting, the team lit a traditional Indian lamp, which was followed by an address by Ramadas on the future of the manufacturing industry in India, and a guided tour of the new facility by Renishaw employees.
