Renishaw opens new Additive Manufacturing Solutions Centre in India

June 13, 2016

Additive Manufacturing machine maker Renishaw, headquartered in the UK, has announced the opening of a new Additive Manufacturing Solutions Centre in Pune, India. The facility will be equipped with its latest AM systems and be staffed by knowledgeable engineers, providing an environment in which customers can expand their knowledge and confidence using Additive Manufacturing technology, stated Renishaw.

Renishaw sees the new Indian centre as a cornerstone in its ambition to be a major contributor to the adoption of AM in the established and fast growing high technology Indian manufacturing sector. “We are delighted to be opening the first Solutions Centre in India. The thrust of the Additive Manufacturing centres is to create a platform on which to work in close partnership with our customers to help them realise the benefits of AM in their products and manufacturing processes,” stated Rhydian Pountney, Renishaw’s Director responsible for Indian Sales and Marketing Operations.

Renishaw has been trading in India for over 30 years and it established a representative office in Bangalore in 1993, which was converted to a wholly owned trading subsidiary in 2000. Today the company has offices in five cities plus resident sales engineers in other key areas. In Pune, Renishaw has a 80,000 sq ft building, which houses customer demonstration and training facilities, a procurement operation, a large software development team and a 100% Export Orientated Unit (EOU), which manufactures certain products that were previously procured and where assembly costs are critical to competitiveness. Total employee numbers within India now number 340.

“Renishaw’s vision is to make AM a mainstream manufacturing technology, used in series production of high performance parts for aerospace, medical, automotive, oil & gas, mould & die and consumer products. The technology will enable companies to design and make innovative products with spectacular gains in performance and efficiency,” added Clive Martell, Head of Global Additive Manufacturing.
