Lapp: Expansion in Asia
With a traditional Puja ceremony and prayer-song, the second production plant of the Stuttgart-based Lapp Group was recently inaugurated in Bhopal, India. The recently completed construction stage alone represents an investment of around EUR 20 million. This part of the new cable plant already currently produces 1,000 km of single core every day. These single-core cables are intended above all for use in building cabling. The new plant in Bhopal will allow the company to cover the growing demand in the Indian market. The market volume for single cores alone is massive. The Indian international subsidiary of the Lapp Group experienced double-digit growth in the last business year (2011/2012). The plant in Bhopal is the Lapp Group’s second in India after Bangalore and covers an area of 117,000 square meters.
