On 12 October, Oerlikon Balzers India, a leading provider of surface solutions, inaugurated its largest Indian production centre in Manesar in the presence of Hereditary Prince Alois of Liechtenstein and Dr Doris Frick, the Ambassador of Liechtenstein in Switzerland. The new facility represents a further major commitment by Oerlikon Balzers to the Indian market as it continues to grow, and this significant investment in the future and in India will allow Oerlikon Balzers to serve its customers across various industries even more effectively.
With its 20th anniversary of service in Northern India and the commissioning of Oerlikon Balzers’ largest coating system, the inauguration of the new customer centre also marked another milestone in the history of Oerlikon Balzers in India.
H.S.H. Hereditary Prince Alois of Liechtenstein praised the diplomatic and economic relationship between India and Liechtenstein, which stretches back many years: “Liechtenstein’s economy is very diversified, and almost 40% of its GDP is created by people in the manufacturing sector in companies operating internationally like Oerlikon Balzers. I am very pleased that the long-standing diplomatic and economic relations between the two countries – and Oerlikon Balzers’ commitment to India is a perfect example – have contributed to continuous growth, and I am proud that Liechtenstein has consistently created a large number of jobs in this industrial sector for so many years.”
Marc Desrayaud, Head of Business Unit Balzers Industrial Solutions, said in his speech: “I am absolutely delighted with the growth that all eight of our customer centres in India have achieved in the 24 years of our operations here in India. It is not by chance that India is one of our key markets, where we are constantly investing in our geographical footprint, in the technology being developed here, in our employees in terms of pure numbers and by developing their professional skills, and of course in enlarging our range of products and services so that we can meet all our customers’ expectations.”
Oerlikon Balzers strongly supports “MAKE IN INDIA”, the programme for economic growth launched by the Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP), the Ministry of Commerce and Industry and the Indian Government. With the opening of the company’s largest customer centre in India in the presence of Hereditary Prince Alois of Liechtenstein, Oerlikon Balzers has proved the reality and importance of trilateral economic relations between Liechtenstein, Switzerland and India.
