Illig India Opens New Assembly Plant
On November 27 and 28, 2015, Illig Maschinenbau GmbH & Co. KG, Heilbronn, Germany, celebrated the official opening of its new production plant Illig India Pvt. Ltd. in Malur, in the south Indian state of Karnataka.
Initially founded in 2014, ILLIG India is set to serve its Indian customers directly from India with the assembly, delivery and service support of the vacuum forming machine RV 53. Around 120 people attended the event, including many existing, as well as potential Indian customers.
“Illig India is set to supply the Indian continent with the RV 53 vacuum machines. Everything from the assembly of the machines to after-sales service and on-site application consulting at the customers’ production plants. With the RV 53 assembled in India, we are well equipped to serve the growing Indian packaging market with a very versatile thermoforming machine at a very attractive price-performance ratio. We’re able to ensure high-quality machine technology by supplying the components and assemblies from our main plant in Heilbronn, Germany, for assembly in Malur, which means they’ll carry the “made in Germany” seal of approval,” explained the Heilbronn plant manager and board member of Illig India, Dr. Hans-Peter Roth, at the opening ceremony. The newly renovated assembly plant in Malur currently has around 800 m2 of usable floor space. In addition to the assembly area, the facilities also include modern office space and a large warehouse for spare parts. There is also a showroom where customer training can be conducted, among other uses.
