Frauscher, a Delachaux Group company specialized in wheel detection systems and axle counters based on inductive sensor technology for the railway sector, has just opened its new production center in Mysuru. This facility brings together the production of axle counter and engineering teams working with development teams in Bangaluru (Bangalore) and Sankt Marienkirchen – Austria. Mysuru’s products are mainly destined to the South and South East Indian market. For Michael Thiel, CEO of Frauscher, “the opening of this new production site in India is a testament to the dynamism of Frauscher’s business in this region of the globe. This new plant, associated with our development center in Bengaluru will accelerate the growth of our business.”
This new Indian production site of the Delachaux Group adds to those of Raipur (aluminothermic welding – Pandrol) acquired in 2015 and completely renovated since, of Pune (energy and data management systems – Conductix-Wampfler) inaugurated in 2016 and Hyderabad (fastening systems – Pandrol) inaugurated in 2018. These facilities support the “make in India” initiative and are working in close collaboration with Delachaux’ commercial offices in Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru and Kolkata.
“The Delachaux Group now has 260 people in India, says Guy Talbourdet, CEO of Delachaux Group, and India is one of our top sales countries. Pandrol is currently participating to the construction of Ahmedabad and Nagpur subways or to the Dedicated Freight Corridors projects and Conductix-Wampfler equips the ports of Mundra and Pipavav with its energy and data management systems. ”
Thus, Delachaux Group’s businesses support the development of Indian infrastructures in the sectors of railways, ports, mines or in the development of new automated warehouses.
