We remain steadfast in our journey towards complete localisation and stand in solidarity with the centre’s clarion call for “India for India” and the “Aatmanirbhar Bharat Abhiyaan,” said Ravichandran Purushothaman, President, Danfoss India.

As part of Danfoss’ commitment to India, the company had made extensive investments to further enhance the Drives Assembly and Manufacturing Facility in 2019 and commenced the manufacturing of P600 platform Drives from the Chennai campus, which is currently also exported to global markets. The current investment allows for further expansion (since August 2020) for the assembly of the FC51/FC360 range of drives to cater exclusively to the Indian market and further expand the P600 manufacturing line in the coming months. The new range of drives will create a significant impact towards improving energy efficiency and maximising energy productivity.
