Alstom formally opened its new manufacturing facility in Coimbatore, India with a ceremony attended by France’s Ambassador to India, Emmanuel Lenain, and Alstom India and South Asia Managing Director Alain Spohr.
Spread across 15 acres, and with an installed capacity of 2.1 million hours, it’s the largest components manufacturing facility in Asia and will create 10,000 direct and indirect jobs.
Alstom has had a presence in Coimbatore since 1978. This new site will enable wider production diversity and complexity, offering integration and testing of tractions, auxiliary convertors, cubicles, driver desks and rolling stock looms.
It will not only deliver components to Alstom’s sites across India, but also to countries around the world – from Saudi Arabia and Vietnam through to France, Italy and Canada.
“Our presence in Coimbatore dates to the 1970s and since then we’ve grown multifold. The opening of this facility is a testament of our commitment to the government’s flagship ‘Make in India’ and ‘Atmanirbhar Bharat’ initiatives.
“With our enhanced capabilities and a team of talented and dedicated employees, we’re proud to be a catalyst in India’s manufacturing-led growth story.”
In line with the company’s ‘Sustainability Goals’ for 2025, Alstom is aiming for 80% of the new Coimbatore facility’s regular activities to be run on green energy.
It has also set a target of only using natural light during the daytime.
