FLSmidth MAAG Gear expands in India

Cement consumption in India has been increasing steadily and is expected to continue to rise further in the future. To comply with this trend, FLSmidth MAAG Gear inaugurated its first assemble and service unit in India. The new facility will assemble selected types and sizes of gearboxes locally, not only for the cement but also for the minerals and power industries. Using this local base in India means that over 200 gearbox types will be supported more efficiently. Services such as inspection, maintenance and overhaul for different gearboxes in the cement, minerals and power industry are now offered.

The FLSmidth MAAG Gear facility is part of the new FLSmidth plot covering 70 000 m2 in the booming Bawal Growth Centre. So far three impressive manufacturing buildings have been completed. With space for two additional buildings, the FLSmidth area allows for further future growth. FLSmidth MAAG Gear plans to build around 30 gearboxes a year in the new assemble plant.
