EBERSPAECHER AND SHARDA EXHAUST TECHNOLOGY OPENING NEW PLANT IN INDIA
The Indian Joint Venture of Eberspaecher Exhaust Technology International GmbH and Sharda Motor Industries Ltd. opened its new production plant in India in the city Pune with a festive ceremony. The joint venture aims to develop, produce and sell exhaust systems for commercial vehicles meeting the emission standards of Bharat Stage VI – similar to Euro 6.
At the joint venture in Pune, Sharda Motor, a local exhaust system manufacturer in India, and Eberspaecher produce exhaust systems for commercial vehicles in India. At present, over 160 employees are working for Eberspaecher Sharda. In the press release Eberspaecher states it brings its knowledge in technology and production to the joint venture, Sharda Motor as the local market leader is well aware of the market and the customers’ needs. “We can now supply our customers with high-tech products contributing to air purification in India”, Ajay Relan, Managing Director Sharda Motor, underlines.
Besides this plant in Pune another plant in Northern India is planned. At both sites, exhaust systems meeting the upcoming emission standards of Bharat Stage VI will be manufactured. The new emission legislation represents a major technological leap from the previous Bharat Stage IV standard as it requires far more complex emission control solutions than the ones available in India at present.
