Eaton has unveiled its aerospace manufacturing unit in Bengaluru, its first such facility in India.
The new facility of the US-based power management giant in the capital city of Karnataka will manufacture hose assemblies and other fluid distribution products, including oil debris monitoring systems, to serve commercial, business and regional aircraft.
Eaton now operates 27 aerospace manufacturing locations around the world, including a joint venture in China. The company posted sales of $21.6 billion in 2018.
Nanda Kumar, president, Aerospace Group, Eaton, said, “We expect this facility to be our model plant for digital and smart manufacturing. We see the opportunity here to create a whole new facility with a culture (about) how we want to manufacture in the future… that we can showcase to all our customers and facilities globally.”
He added: “We believe this investment in India will help us grow our original equipment business, because customers are investing heavily here. The site will leverage smart manufacturing technologies and contribute to local growth through employment, business and sourcing opportunities.”
