India is one of the fastest growing economies worldwide. This tremendous growth in India goes along with a strong demand to increase the power generating capacity.
During the recent years the Indian Power Generating Market plays also a pre-dominant role for KÜHME. This fact is supported by figures of the year 2015 where KÜHME delivered more than 200 units of tailor made Valve Stations and more than 1.000 pcs. Quick Closing Valves exclusively for Indian customers. Already about more than 35 years ago KÜHME started supplying Special Valve Technology for various high performance applications into India. Because of that long and continuous successful installation track record KÜHME Quick Closing Valve Technology has a high reputation for Indian plant operators with regard to safe and reliable isolation of fuel flow.
Therefore it was more than the logical consequent next step to establish the own KÜHME Production Plant in India.
KVI fast track approach & already ISO 9001 approved
KUHME Valves India Pvt. Ltd. located in Pune in the state of Maharashtra is running a fully equipped production plant specialized on Burner Valve Stations according to Technology from KÜHME Germany. The preferred choice for Pune as the location for this new KÜHME set up was done because of the good availability of infrastructure, logistic support as well as the network of technology partners and sub-suppliers in that particular region.
The incorporation and set up of KUHME Valves India follows a very straight forward fast track approach. In autumn 2015 KÜHME Germany as a midsized technology provider was on-boarded as one of the first members to the “Make in India Mittelstand” supporting program launched by the Indian Embassy in Berlin, Germany. The Certificate of Incorporation (COI) for KUHME Valves India was granted by the Indian Government in March 2016. In parallel to these activities, early in 2016 the technical team of KUHME Valves India passed intensive training sessions and practical lessons at the head office in Bochum, Germany. Besides following the well-proven KÜHME Quality Standard, KUHME Valves India is also fully approved according ISO 9001.
Mr. Klaus Reusch, Owner and Managing Director of KÜHME stated:
KUHME Valves India is one of our most important investments into the fast growing Indian market. KUHME Valves India plays an important role for the local Indian market but also can work as our production hub for the neighboring countries in the Asian area in the near future. NAMASTE to all our valuable Indian Customers and Business Partners as well as to the entire Team at KUHME Valves India.
