U.S. auxiliary equipment maker Charles Ross & Son Co. is expanding in India, opening a new plant early next year in Pune.
Hauppauge, N.Y.-based Ross said the 20,000 square foot factory is a “major” expansion from its existing Indian plant, and will make various kinds of mixing, blending, drying and dispersion equipment.
The operation, which is slated to open in March, sits on a 2.5 acre space in the Chakan industrial area near Pune and has enough land to more than double the initial capacity, Ross said. The wholly owned subsidiary, Ross Process Equipment, focuses on customers in India and surrounding countries.
Ross has seven other factories worldwide, with five in the United States and two in China. It opened the Indian operation in 2007.
