HIKONE, Japan--()--Fujitec India Private Ltd. (Head Office: Kanchipuram, India; Managing Director Shakir Ahmed), a group subsidiary of FUJITEC CO., LTD. (Hikone City, Shiga Prefecture, Japan; Masayoshi Harada, president and CEO), completed a second elevator plant in the suburbs of Chennai, which became fully operational in February of this year.

The second plant was built to grow sales in India, where demand is increasing, and to expand exports throughout South Asia. Upon completion, the plant provided more than double the previous production space for Fujitec in the country. In addition, construction was completed for a new 78.9 meter elevator research tower. Fujitec India is strengthening its development structure, including the development of high-speed elevator models, to meet the demand for elevators in India, where high-rise building construction is becoming more common.

Fujitec India plans to increase production capacity to 3,000 units per year by the end of 2023, 1.5 times the current 2,000 units. This increase in capacity is the company’s response to strong sales of standard elevator models for the Indian domestic market. Fujitec pursues the further expansion of its global business under Fujitec’s medium-term management plan Vision24, expanding geographic business reach and building up production capacity steadily.
