GROB opens sixth plant in India

With the opening of its sixth production plant in India, machine tool builder GROB is strengthening its presence in the local market. The€8m, 5000 sq m plant in Bengaluru (formerly Bangalore) is another important milestone in the GROB Group’s efforts to secure the growth of the company and thus the jobs of employees at all facilities.Core business at the factory will be the manufacture of machining centres and automation, employing 130 people at peak output.

GROB recognised the potential of this rapidly growing market early on after the opening of the Indian automotive market to foreign car manufacturers at the end of the 1990s. The company established its first sales and service branch on the South Asian subcontinent as part of the first delivery of a flexible production system in 2007.
