ANDRITZ Pumps Formally Launched In India


CHENNAI, INDIA: India is one of the fastest growing economies in the world, with considerable potential for ANDRITZ products. The ANDRITZ Pumps division has already been active in the Indian market for more than two decades and has a significant installed base of pumps in India. Previous supplies came mainly from ANDRITZ manufacturing locations in Austria, Germany, and China. The ANDRITZ Pumps division has now invested in an assembly line and pump test loop with the same high global standards in Chennai, India, where ANDRITZ already has an existing manufacturing set-up for separation equipment. The pump assembly shop and test loop were commissioned successfully in April 2016 and delivery of pumps began in June 2016.

In order to tap effectively into this market, ANDRITZ Pumps was formally launched on the Indian market in Chennai on December 2, 2016. A technical and product information seminar, which was well attended by ANDRITZ customers, sales agents, dealers, and representatives of clients from the pulp & paper, water supply, power, and mining sectors, was followed by the formal launch and showcasing of ANDRITZ pumps assembled at the Chennai works.

The program started with the traditional lamp lighting by the ANDRITZ team and a welcome address from Robert Stantish, local Managing Director in Chennai. The gathering was addressed by Yu Jinming, Vice President, Global Head of Standard Pumps, Mr. Praveen Singh – Business Head, Pumps Division, India, Mirka Sireni, Head of Sales & Market Strategy, Standard Pumps, and Michal Ludwig, Director of Technology. The seminar ended with a vote of thanks by Jinming. After the seminar customers and business partners had the opportunity to interact with the ANDRITZ team.
