Trelleborg is increasing its physical presence and customer support in the Indian market with the opening of multiple new facilities in 2011 and more in 2012.

Establishing a platform for local presence and expansion across a wide variety of industries, Trelleborg now has several facilities in the region with its Trelleborg Engineered Systems, Trelleborg Automotive and Trelleborg Sealing Solutions business areas all having either a manufacturing facility or head office in the country.

“India has a vast and growing economy with an average growth of six to seven percent expected in the next three years in industrial production alone,” said Peter Nilsson, President and CEO at Trelleborg. “Therefore, the decision to increase our investment in this key area couldn’t have been an easier one, and we are pleased to announce that all of our facilities are reporting excellent sales; we have seen an 18 percent increase in sales from $61.5 million in 2010 to $72.5 million in 2011.

“These investments, including the relocation and centralization of our Trelleborg Engineered Systems operation, which works with marine systems, will enable us to get closer to the action in our chosen market sectors in India and around the world,” said Nilsson. “Through the ‘Engineering and Design Centre of Excellence’ in Ahmedabad, we can provide a complete cradle-to-grave service, which maintains quality right through the supply chain to our existing customer base. In the marine industry, for instance, we strongly believe that Trelleborg can contribute to the upcoming renewal and expansion of ports in India and globally.”
