Fuji Electric India invests in new facility for Automation Solutions

2023 — Fuji Electric India, a top industrial automation and energy efficient
solution provider and a part of the 100-year-old Fuji Electric, reached a major milestone in
India, with the inauguration of its state-of-the-art and environment friendly factory on March
15, 2023. Present during the inauguration ceremony at Fuji Electric India’s plant were Yosuke
Ishizaka, MD; Shivaji Waghmare, CEO; Kentaroh Yamaguchi, Director; B Karthik, Business Head –
Automation Division from Fuji Electric India team.
Shivaji Waghmare cited two major reasons for the expansion. “The first is to invest in latest
manufacturing technology in close collaboration with our parent company in Japan to provide
high quality products. The second is to increase capacity ahead of market requirements to meet
our customers’ growing demand,” he said. “This facility will remain a testimony to our
relentless drive to improve all aspects of our operations and to maintain our status as one of
the best in the industry,” he stressed.
“The new facility is borne out of extensive interaction and participation of our executives. Some
of the critical equipment have been imported from Japan to match manufacturing processes
between Fuji Electric India and Fuji Electric. We also improved the overall layout of the various
functional areas of the factory to ensure a more efficient flow of materials, from receiving and
storage to assembly, packaging and finally shipment,” said Yamaguchi.
Fuji Electric India produces world-class automation products for various applications. It is the
leading supplier of drives and automation products in both the domestic and export markets. It
has a strong distribution network for sales and distribution of replacement parts.
Built at a cost of Rs 150 Crores, the factory is expected to produce 3500 drives/month in single
shift. There are plans to make 2,00,000 PCBs annually out of the new facility. The state-of-the-
art manufacturing facility is fully automated and has the capacity to produce a range of
products on a scale of 0.4 kW to 75KW, as of now. There are plans to scale it up to 710 KW.
The factory will cater to requirements from Cranes, Lift, Cement, Boilers, HVAC, Oil & Gas and
Heavy Industries.

“The investment put into setting up this modern manufacturing plant in
India will fulfil our vision to manufacture automation products, help us meet customers’
demands and also propel to becoming a 1,500 crore company by the end of 2024. Initially, we
would be recruiting more than 250 employees for the new factory. With all the factors working
to our advantage, we are expected to grow over 25% in coming years,” said Ishizaka.
