Ahmedabad FA Centre to support Japanese manufacturers

Mitsubishi Electric Corporation announced on 2nd of September, that Mitsubishi Electric India Pvt. Ltd. has begun operating, effective immediately, a new centre to provide factory-automation (FA) services in Ahmedabad with the Indian state of Gujarat, where a large number of Japanese manufacturing companies in need of FA services are operating. The Ahmedabad FA Centre will support the ongoing expansion of Mitsubishi Electric’s FA business in India, which is targeting sales of 8.9 billion INR, or 146 million USD, by the fiscal year ending in March 2016.

The Centre will offer FA product training, technical consultation, solutions and training support for the engineering personnel of its customers. FA product servicing operations in the Gujarat area had been handled by the Pune FA Centre, which was established in January 2012, and by local partners. The Ahmedabad FA Centre, one of five such centres that Mitsubishi Electric now has in India, will provide faster, higher quality local services than ever before.

Ahmedabad, which has a robust economy and substantial infrastructure, is aggressively attracting outside investment. The area’s increasing number of Japanese manufacturers and automotive companies in general are envisioned stimulating demand for FA products and a wide range of related services.
