INDIA: NEW FACTORY FOR MAKING PLAIN BEARING PRIMARY MATERIALS OPENS

Production in Supa already commenced in October 2016

Rheinmetall Automotive continues to expand in Asia: the plain bearing unit of KSPG Automotive India Private Ltd. formally opened a new factory in Supa at the end of October 2016; production has been in full swing ever since. The new plant—measuring over 40,000 square meters—will mainly be used for producing primary materials for plain bearings. An already envisaged expansion of the building would bring its surface area up to almost 60,000 square meters. Nearly all of the plant’s 141 employees made the move from the previous factory in Ahmednagar.
