General Cable India plant inaugurated in Himachal

Baddi: General Cable Corporation, a Fortune 500 company and one of the most globally diversified industrial companies, has completed construction on its state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Baddi, Himachal Pradesh, India.

Chief Minister Prem Kumar Dhumal inaugurated the plant today with more than 200 high-ranking government officials and business leaders in attendance.

Also in attendance were Mr. Mathias Sandoval, General Cable President and CEO Rest of World, Mr. Peter Campbell, General Cable Senior Vice President of Asia and Mr. Sandeep Sood, General Cable Country Head of India Operations.

Designed and built in compliance with Indian Green Building standards, the manufacturing facility is situated on 20 acres of land in the industrial town of Baddi, in the state of Himachal Pradesh.

Baddi is one of the faster growing cities in India and quickly becoming a manufacturing hub for multinational companies.

“By designing ‘green’ from the ground up, we have seen immediate benefits in operating costs. These include energy savings of 30% to 40% and water savings of 20 to 30% when compared to other similar wire and cable operations. We have created a better-quality work environment for our associates, which will promote good health and safety practices and therefore increase productivity. We are off to a great start and are excited about our future,” said Sandeep Sood, Country Head of India Operations.

The broad range of products to be developed and manufactured at the facility include aerial transmission conductors, low, medium and high voltage power cables, building wire, control, instrumentation and specialty cables. At current installed capacity, the facility is capable of generating annual revenues in the range of $100 to $120 million, complementing the Company’s existing exports into the country.

“The opening of any new facility is a significant achievement, but the quality of execution at this plant in Baddi has been exceptional. I want to recognize the support of the state of Himachal Pradesh and our employees who have helped make this plant a reality as we address the outstanding opportunities in the growing Indian market,” said Mathias Sandoval, General Cable President and CEO Rest of the World.

    The oportunity lying ahead is tremendous, but question is ‘how to make strong strategy to implement the vision into reality’. the project is running in such a slow speed,the over cost and financial burden would tremendous. Secondly, to capture indian market with the existing players like, Poly cab, KEI, Havels, Universal, CCI, & DOZEN OTHERS.
    Until some dedicated team with experience and ownership attitudes is formed and with distinct objectives / goal are set it would be very difficult for the project to survive..
    thirdly , export marketing help from others units would help tremendously so long it would not develop its own wing to do so. simply orders from export market is the need of the day.,
    production efficiency and quality of the products are the main criteria. to serve customer with min. cost is the key to augment demand.demand
    Indian market is not an easy terrain, competitors are well trained so it is need to make strong core team of operations, marketing & finance.
    I am in tis line more than 32+ years working in India in different position and organisations and well aware of the facts & figures in the cable business,. that is why, I make this comments, Don’t mind if any thing is said wrong.
