BFW inaugurates manufacturing facility in Hosur, Tamil Nadu


Bharat Fritz Werner Ltd (BFW), India’s leading solution provider in the area of machine tools, has inaugurated a smart manufacturing facility in Hosur, Tamil Nadu.
The positive long-term economic indicators and the company’s strategy led them to initiate the creation of this new facility. The first phase is spread across 35,000 sq-ft, which includes a significant number of modern mother machines to enable integration of the existing foundry facility with machining capability. The second phase will expand to 60,000 sq-ft.
Speaking at the inauguration ceremony, Ravi Raghavan, MD & CEO, BFW, said, “This wonderful machine shop will be converted into a smart manufacturing set-up when fully operational in the next few months. This plant will be a true example of what modern manufacturing should be.”
Both the facilities will double the machine building capacity of BFW, and will help meet the growing industry demands and remain a strong manufacturing presence for years to come. Its aim is to not only increase profits and remain a global competitor, but also retain and nurture skilled workers. This commitment to employees and community ensures a healthy economy throughout the state line area.
Shailesh Sheth, director, BFW, also expressed his great pleasure on BFW achieving this quantum leap, saying, “As a brand, BFW is now extremely well-established and it has lived up to its brand image and performance.”
This manufacturing facility is built with smart manufacturing technology on the path towards becoming Industry 4.0 compliant.
