The thyssenkrupp group has inaugurated its new engineering office in Pune on Thursday. The new office of thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions (India) Pvt Ltd, amongst the leading engineering companies in India for chemical plants and projects, was inaugurated by Dr. Sami Pelkonen, CEO thyssenkrupp Business Unit Chemical & Process Technologies Germany (tkIS-CPT) and PD Samudra, CEO & Managing Director and Member of Board, thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions India.
Speaking at the virtual ceremony of the inauguration, Dr. Pelkonen said, “thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions India is also the largest subsidiary of thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions – chemical process and technologies globally, and is playing a very important role for a wide variety of Indian and international projects covering fertilisers, polymers, petrochemicals, refinery units, electrolysis, cryogenic storages, etc., in the chemical sectors and plants for metallurgical sectors among others. Its track record of over 750 large, medium and small size projects in India and abroad coupled with the professional relationship it has with its customers, makes it a jewel in the crown of thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions Chemical & Process Technologies.”
Also speaking on the occasion, Samudra said, “Today is an important milestone in the history of our organisation. In addition to our initiatives at our Head Office in Mumbai, we had made a small beginning with our Pune operations in 1997 at Bibwewadi on the outskirts of Pune City with less than 50 engineers. This means we are relocating our Pune office after growing steadily over two decades. Our Pune Operations have been independently executing projects with minimum support from our head office in Mumbai and have several successfully-implemented projects to their credit.”
The ultra-modern engineering office will service the company’s Indian as well as international customers. It can accommodate approximately 350 engineers out of the total strength of 1,400 employees of thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions India.
