Hella opens second electronics facility in India

Automotive components manufacturer Hella has opened its second electronics plant in India, in response to the growing market in the country. The 5,000 sq m-production facility in Mehsana, India, north of the city of Ahmedabad in the state of Gujarat, will initially focus on sensor solutions for accelerator pedal sensors and will gradually be expanded by further electronic products.

The investment volume required for this amounts to a lower-double-digit million euro figure, said the firm.

“India is one of the largest and most promising automotive markets in the world,” said Hella CEO Dr. Rolf Breidenbach. “The Indian market therefore plays an important strategic role for Hella. With the opening of a second electronics plant, we are reaffirming our commitment and laying the foundation for further profitable growth in one of the world’s fastest-growing regions.”

“In comparison with the worldwide development, vehicle production in India has grown significantly faster in recent years. In addition, key market trends such as electrification and digitalisation will further boost demand for electronic solutions. By providing specific product solutions for the Indian market and expanding our capacity, we will now be able to meet demand even better,” said Dr. Naveen Gautam, member of the Electronics Management Board and responsible for Hella’s electronics business in India.

Hella currently employs over 1,500 people at five locations in India, including Chennai, Coimbatore, Dhankot, Gurgaon and Pune.
