Siemens Limited has set up a state-of-the-art factory in Aurangabad to address the increasing demand for bogies in India and across the world.
The factory will deliver over 200 bogies towards an export order, the company said in a statement on Wednesday (9 November).
The bogies are based on the proven global design concept from Siemens – SF30 Combino Plus that offers best-in-class passenger experience and easy maintenance, the company said.
“We are glad to announce this significant milestone for Siemens Limited. The Aurangabad factory will address the increasing demand for bogies not only in India but also globally. We are proud that Siemens has chosen India as a preferred location for this very strategic initiative. This is also an excellent example of making in India for the rest of the world," said Sunil Mathur, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Siemens Limited.
The factory has a highly flexible production line capable of meeting domestic and global rolling stock requirements. It manufactures high-performance bogies for passenger, coaches, locomotives, electric multiple units, trams and metros.
