The new facility, situated in an up-and-coming industrial park in the city of Pune, Maharashtra, will include manufacturing, office and warehouse space. The facility development is planned for completion this year.
To ensure success of the expansion, Alto-Shaam is growing its team in India. The news of India manufacturing expansion comes following the announcement of JK Raghavan’s promotion to senior vice president of global supply chain and international manufacturing operations—as part of a series of leadership updates.
Alto-Shaam has further invested in India with the development of three leadership roles to oversee quality, supply chain and manufacturing teams and ensure the smooth running of the business. The new hires will be playing an important role in setting up the space, implementing plans developed and hiring additional skilled manufacturing professionals to expand the team further.
Steve Maahs, Chief Executive Officer at Alto-Shaam, said the new facility enables Alto-Shaam to provide on-the-ground support for customers in India, and a closer reach to global partners: “India is a market that has continued to grow for us, and this new facility is the next step in supporting our global vision for Alto-Shaam. We are confident that through this expansion we will be able to reach more of our key customers due to the many strong potentials this market holds for our business.
“Our senior leadership team from the United States has been directly engaged in India to hire and onboard the best talent that will align with our business goals, and we are looking forward to growing our global team with manufacturing in India.”
