Ranjangaon, July 2023. 1st July 2023 marks a decade of Schmersal India‘s production facility. To commemorate this occasion, Schmersal invited to a jubilee celebration with channel partners, suppliers, customers, and employees, in the factory.
Schmersal India was established in 2007 with just three members. Over the years, due to the growing demand for safety products in India, the Schmersal Group decided to set up the manufacturing facility in 2013 at Ranjangaon MIDC, Pune.
Schmersal is the only Multinational Corporation (MNC) to have a manufacturing facility for safety products in India in line with international safety standards – true to the motto ‘Make in India’. The Schmersal factory at MIDC Ranjangaon, Pune, with almost 4,000 sq m of production and storage space, produces safety systems and solutions for machine safety.
In the last ten years, Schmersal India has written an unprecedented success story: The company has continuously expanded its production and business activities, headed by Sagar Bhosale, Managing Director and founder member. Under his leadership, Schmersal India has experienced exponential double-digit sales growth, not only in products but also in services, which is now an integral part of the business. The workforce has grown from five in the beginning to 143 employees.
In May 2021, Schmersal India celebrated a major milestone by producing 100 thousand safety products in a single month.
A new milestone was reached in December 2022. The company crossed INR 100 million turnover with its Indian operations. Schmersal India also expanded its sales activities in India – both by opening new sales offices and by expanding its network of distribution channels in order to address new markets, increase geographical coverage and improve knowledge and awareness of machine safety in India. Schmersal India also supplies its products and solutions to all SAARC countries.
As part of its global strategy, Schmersal India also established a new competence centre for IT, software and engineering services in India (Schmersal Global Competence Centre) in 2022.
In January 2023, Schmersal announced the inaugural of its expanded office on the 6th floor of Nucleus Mall in Pune. This new location is an important milestone for the company as it signals its continued growth and expansion in the Indian market.
