On August 17 and 18, Gleason hosted more than 150 customers and business partners for the grand opening of its new 65,000-square-foot facility in Aerospace Park, Devanahalli, Bangalore, India. The two-day event included a grand opening celebration including a ribbon- cutting ceremony and remarks by company executives. This was followed by several product demonstrations, among which was the introduction of a new gear finishing cell including a gear hobbing machine and gear shaving machine produced locally by the Gleason India team. The event concluded with an extensive gear technology education program covering a broad range of topics on bevel and cylindrical gear design and manufacturing, gear metrology, and the company’s digital manufacturing solutions.
Gleason established its first production facility in Bangalore in 1996. Since then, Gleason’s presence in India has grown, keeping pace with the country’s remarkable industrial growth. This modern, larger, and climate-controlled facility will allow Gleason to provide a wider range of high-precision products produced in India for local and global customers.
“The investment in this new facility makes an important statement about our belief in the Indian market and its growth potential, but most importantly it is recognition of our confidence in our Gleason team in India to serve our customers at the highest level,” said John J. Perrotti, Gleason president and CEO.
