AT&F Expands Facility in India
AT&F India Fabrication is constructing a new facility that will feature 20 ton lifting capacity and steel processing equipment to fabricate and assemble components for a series of industrial markets.
AT&F India Fabrication Pvt. Ltd (India), a fully-owned subsidiary of AT&F (Cleveland, OH), and recognized world leader in large-scale welding and steel fabrication, has announced a 8,735 sq m (94,000 sq ft) facility expansion in Chakan, Maharashtra.
Since its inception in 2011, AT&F India has been a key partner in major infrastructure projects in the state of Gujarat. The fabricator has built major steel structures for power plant construction, barges and pontoons for port expansion projects. The firm has begun the construction of a new manufacturing facility and is expected to be completed in early 2015.
The new facility in Chakan and industrial development near Pune will feature 20 ton lifting capacity and steel processing equipment to fabricate and assemble components and equipment to serve OEMs in the construction, transportation, mining and building industries.
“The greatest thing that we have to offer the Indian marketplace is not just high quality steel fabrications that are in great demand. Rather, it is the knowledge and management discipline that are our most valuable products. These have served us well in the United States for more than seventy years. AT&F India operations run consistent with the foundations of our U.S. business model of providing customers with exacting, well-documented work in a highly ethical and efficient manner. We want everyone to be aware that we are noticeably different,” said Michael F. Ripich, AT&F chief executive officer.
Similar to its U.S. counterpart, the facility will house large capacity equipment that pushes the limits of size, scope and precision. “This facility expansion is a statement of our continued commitment to invest in customer success at home and abroad,” stated Ripich.
The company has built an outstanding corporate reputation providing custom steel manufacturing solutions to industries throughout the world. Quality and innovation have fueled its growth and helped to define the manufacturing group it is today.
AT&F is committed to customer success via specialized facilities and locations and nonpareil quality systems: ASME U, U2, S, N, NPT, NS, NA stamps, and ISO 9001:2008 certified. AT&F operates 700,000 square feet of manufacturing space throughout the globe: Cleveland, Ohio; Orrville, Ohio; Charleston, S.C.; Arhus, Denmark; and Mumbai, India.
