Pune, February 26, 2020
Brose – the Germany-based global manufacturer of mechatronic systems for vehicle doors and seats - has opened its new campus in Hinjewadi, Pune (Maharashtra), having a footprint of around 175,000 sq ft and home to 480 employees. Brose is investing Euro 3.2 million in a new headquarters building, development and IT center as well as the manufacturing plant.
“This investment is not only a commitment to the Indian market; it is also a strategic move for the Brose Group. To improve competitiveness and efficiency we are further expanding the global engineering and IT service center in Pune and shortening the paths between development and manufacturing. Speed is a success factor for our company. The market trends in the global automotive business rely on extremely fast and consequent results,” emphasised Ulrich Schrickel, CEO Brose Group.
The company’s goal is to enhance more of its products with sensor technology and software solutions. This will enable the automotive supplier to create completely new mobility experiences and more incentives to buy. “With our competence in the integration of electronics, sensor technology and software into intelligent products Brose is actively shaping the future of mobility,” added Schrickel.
This is why the supplier must expand its software expertise. In the last year alone, the family-owned company hired 100 experts in digital development, embedded software and IT in Pune. “The current plan is to grow to around 500 employees in total. They will work on cost-effective products for the domestic market and also support other Brose locations in these areas,” said Vasanth Kamath, President Brose India.
The company plans to develop twice as fast as the domestic market with an average growth rate of 20 percent per year until 2025. ”Today we can proudly call ourselves the only supplier of door modules in India. However, our long-term goal is to deliver the entire Brose product portfolio of door systems, seat structures and electric drives to the Indian market,” said Kamath. The new manufacturing building alone is three times larger than the previous facility.
Brose - the world’s fourth-largest family-owned automotive supplier - develops and produces mechatronic systems for vehicle doors and seats as well as electric motors, drives and electronics, among others for steering, brakes, transmissions and engine cooling. Brose started its activities in India in 2006 and has been growing ever since. Today 480 employees develop and produce window regulators, side door latches, door modules and seat height adjusters in Hinjewadi for domestic and global car manufacturers. Brose’s local IT service center also supports global business.
