MPF in sync with Make in India


With an eye on India’s rapidly rising tall building population, the German major has ramped up its manufacturing base which is truly multi purpose.


German company thyssenkrupp recently inaugurated its elevator manufacturing facility in India at Chakan near Pune. This plant, rightly called Multi-Purpose Facility (MPF), is built on 84,000 square metres of land with an investment of about Rs.300 crores. It includes a manufacturing and logistics centre, customer showroom cum experience centre, training centre, and R&D centre.

The MPF is aligned with the Government’s ‘Make in India’ vision, aimed at making India a global manufacturing hub. It will enable the company to cater to increasing demands from the local market and also explore exports in near future. Speaking at the press conference in the inaugural ceremony, Bharat Vishnani, MD, thyssenkrupp Elevator India said, “This MPF inauguration is a culmination of our dreams nurtured for the past few years. With this facility we are now in a much stronger position to serve the second largest elevator market in the world. And the future looks promising with hopes of good market growth fueled by positive developments on the Government policy front. Noteworthy of these are the Infrastructure status awarded to affordable housing, drive on Urbanisation, Smart city concept and GST rollout. All these factors will directly or indirectly give a strong impetus to our industry.”


The initial annual production capacity is planned for 6,000 units, which will get extended to 10,000 units in next few years. Elevators produced here are based on German technology and engineering design, adapted for local standards and market needs across various segments.


The learning centre here, called the Seed Campus (Specialised Employee Education & Development), integrates into thyssenkrupp Elevator’s global network of 17 seed campus locations. Apart from the usual classroom and AV training, this centre is well equipped with the latest digital technologies and simulators to deliver quality learning to not only the management and office staff, but also to the field technicians who are responsible to install and maintain its elevators.


The customer showroom cum experience centre is a visual tour displaying the company’s latest products and reference projects using 3D mapping and VR technology. These interactive presentations enhance the overall experience and in doing so, thyssenkrupp has created a world class experience centre to showcase its innovative products such as the TWIN®elevator. This showroom also displays the various design options for operating fixtures, cabin finishes, and ceiling options.


Market sentiments are picking up and thyssenkrupp with its MPF is now poised much stronger to reap its benefits.
