GE Opens Manufacturing Plant in Pune

GE Opens Manufacturing Plant in Pune

Inaugurating US-based General Electric’s first multi-modal manufacturing plant in India, Prime Minister Narendra Modi pitched his Make in India campaign and invited GE to manufacture ships in India. Modi said, “The opportunities for manufacturing in India are immense. We are blessed with demographic dividend.”

The $200 million new plant is as much path-breaking for India as it is for the 136-year-old GE. It is the result of thinking that began within GE about three years ago: How can the company harmonize its various operations for better economies of scale and better use of capital? The answer was a multi-modal facility. The unit will manufacture a range of diversified products for sectors like energy, aviation, and oil and gas transportation.
