New manufacturing facility inaugurated in India


On August 10, 2012, Bosch Packaging Technology inaugurated a new plant in Verna, India and thus expands its production capacities.


The official inauguration ceremony took place in the presence of Friedbert Klefenz, President of Bosch Packaging Technology, representatives of the local Bosch management and regional politics. Equipped with state-of-the-art technology, the new manufacturing facility in the Indian federal state of Goa, expands capacities to meet the increasing demand of the country’s fast growing packaging market.


“With this new facility, we will bring our new global offerings to India, consistently following our strategy of diversification and internationalization. Hence, this is not just a milestone for the Packaging Technology division of Bosch in India, but a global one, too,” comments Friedbert Klefenz on the investment.


Today, Bosch Packaging Technology in India designs, develops, manufactures and markets form, fill and seal machines for flexible bag packaging, flow wrapping machines for confectionery and food applications as well as vial filling and closing machines for liquid pharmaceuticals. The new plant will aim at increased localization of new packaging machine production and make German world-class technology affordable and available to the Indian market.


Bosch Packaging Technology India, which commenced its operation in Verna from a leased location in 2007, at present employs directly 130 associates. With the new facility, it is expected to increase the number by 30 within the next three years.
