Furniture fittings and hardware major Hettich India has inaugurated its “state-of-the-art” hinge manufacturing plant in Indore, Madhya Pradesh. Spread over 1,00,000 sqm, the company’s Indore plant is the largest Hettich plant in the world. The factory is completely eco-friendly with zero water discharge and water recycling system, the company has said.
“Our Indore plant marks the dawn of a new era for the Hettich Group. It brings India right to the global stage with hinges being manufactured in India for the global markets. We are extremely proud of our Indian subsidiary and aim to work very closely for technology transfer and manufacturing expertise to be able to deliver the cutting-edge technology products to our customers,” Dr Andreas Hettich, global CEO at Hettich has said.
According to Dr Hettich, the company has given paramount importance to safety with the adoption of non-hazardous processes and “advanced” fire prevention and suppression systems.
“The plant is equipped with the most advanced machinery from Europe to manufacture integrated silent hinges. Raw materials to finished products are processed under one roof, thus, giving excellent control over processes and the final product quality. Every product leaving the plant is ensured for its quality, reliability and life.”
Apart from the latest plant in Indore, the company has two other manufacturing plants in Vadodara, Gujarat, which produce stainless steel wire products and telescopic runners. These plants, Dr Hettich stressed, resonate with the clarion call for making India ‘atma nirbhar’ (self-reliant).
