Pune, India – The Eirich Group, with Maschinenfabrik Gustav Eirich GmbH & Co KG as its strategic center in Hardheim, Germany, has been a global leader in mixing and processing technology for over 160 years. The company announced the inauguration of its new state-of-art manufacturing plant in Chakan Industrial Area, Pune. The new facility, a strategic addition to Eirich’s global footprint, will focus on manufacturing intensive mixers, associated plant equipment, and control systems for both India and worldwide exports. 

The Pune Plant is spread over a three-acre plot and is a significant milestone for Eirich India. The Eirich Group enjoys a strong market position worldwide for its unique mixing and processing technology in various industry segments such as metallurgy, refractories, ceramics, agrochemicals, foundry, battery, carbon products, and many more. With the production of the Chakan plant, Eirich India is poised to elevate its capacity and strengthen its position in these key segments. 

Stephan Eirich is the fifth generation to head the family business and sees the expansion of the Indian operations as an important strategic step for the Eirich Group. “With the inauguration  of the Chakan plant, the company has further consolidated its manufacturing capacity to serve our customers,” he said. “This is a state-of-the-art plant with a brand new test center for our customers and will produce quality products that are benchmarked against the best in the world.”

Stressing that India is a focus market for Eirich and that the Chakan plant, with its expanded capacity, will meet the growing demand for the company’s products in all customer industries, Sourav Sen, MD, Eirich India, stated, “New and higher capacity mixer models can now be produced in Chakan. Along with modern control systems and a growing number of digital solutions such as remote service and condition monitoring, this will help Eirich India to serve customers with a wider option.”

In line with group strategy, he continued, “Eirich India will also be able to supply to overseas markets with parts and complete machines through a strong network of Eirich Group companies in 11 countries. The new mixer models mentioned above will support this strategy, as these models are well established in Germany, the rest of Europe, and other markets of Eirich. This will provide tremendous leverage for us to join Eirich’s global supply chain.”

Coincidentally, Eirich India also completes 25 years of its presence in India. “It’s a matter of great pride and privilege to stay committed to serving Indian customers with the world’s leading mixing and granulation technology for the last 25 years and continue to grow with local production of machines, associated plants, and equipment over the years, true to the ‘Make in India’ spirit,” added Sen.
