excellent headway in India. During 2016, Kemppi India saw substantial growth. Growing exports played a major role in the company’s success, as did increased imports from Finland to large Indian customers.
“We can be very satisfied with our development. Our products have clearly answered many needs of the Indian manufacturing industry. The sales of Fast MIG X contributed considerably to our growth, and HIARC M 400 R has taken the number one position in the MIG machines product category in India,” Rashmi Ranjan Mohapatra, Managing Director of Kemppi India says. Kemppi India is participating in the Indian government’s Skill India campaignby taking part in the establishment of more than 20 centers of excellence for teaching modern welding expertise. Skilled welders are and will continue to be in high demand as the country’s manufacturing industry is growing at a rapid pace.
Automated processes improve productivity and profitability.
Kemppi’s groundbreaking welding production and quality management software, WeldEye, has made a strong impression in India as well as in Europe. The versatile solution significantly simplifies the management of welding procedures and qualification certificates, allowing a great deal of time to be spent on more productive work. WeldEye also provides real-time information about the progress of projects and helps ensure weld traceability and compliance with international welding standards. The software has been developed by Kemppi and Weldindustry, integrating the best features from both companies’ product development.
As automation advances, mechanized welding becomes more and more popular. Mechanization improves welding quality and removes unnecessary defects, improving productivity and profitability. Kemppi provides fully integrated, complete solutions for mechanized welding, enabling precise quality control throughout the lifecycle of the equipment.
Future goals in sight
In 2016, foreign investments in India reached an all-time high, totaling 21.6 billion USD. The growth from the previous year was a staggering 30%. India continues to be an attractive target for global investments in 2017. Major reforms in power and infrastructure are expected in 2017. As welding is closely linked to these industries, its outlook for the current year is highly positive.
“This is a very exciting year for us. Kemppi India is expanding geographically into second tier towns and penetrating to the big cities. At the same time, we are expanding our product portfolio to better meet the versatile needs of the Indian manufacturing industry. We intend to grow our partner network significantly; our aim is to have 100 dealers in the next three years. And Kemppi India’s goal is to become the number one subsidiary in Kemppi. I have strong faith in our operations and expertise, and am confident we will reach our goals,” Mohapatra concludes.
