The site, expected to be fully operational by October 2023, marks Bastian’s first manufacturing facility in India.
Bastian Solutions, a Toyota Advanced Logistics company, is excited to announce the upcoming opening of its new manufacturing facility just outside Bangalore, Karnataka. The site, expected to be fully operational by October 2023, marks Bastian’s first manufacturing facility in India.
Establishing their first India-based office in 1996, Bastian, a premier supply chain integration partner in the region, works with customers such as ITC, Jaquar, Asian Paints, Bajaj Auto and more. Engineering and manufacturing its own line of conveyors in the US since 2010, Bastian’s newest site will mark their first step into India’s industrial ecosystem.
As a global integrator, Bastian Solutions is a well-known provider for distribution and manufacturing customers in North & South America, Middle East and Southeast Asia regions.
Vinayak Bhat, general manager of Bastian Solutions said: “As we embark on this remarkable journey of growth and expansion, we are thrilled to announce our first manufacturing plant in India. We hope to strengthen local communities, generate employment opportunities, and advance the industrial development of the country with the help of our cutting-edge facility. With this plant, we are taking a significant step towards ‘Atmanirbharta’ and paving the way for a stronger, more self-reliant India.”
Bastian Solutions’ new manufacturing facility is nearly two acres and the site’s initial hiring efforts will focus on mechanical and electrical engineers to support manufacturing, further expanding their workforce in the country. The site will be located just outside Bangalore in the Indospace area, providing optimal location for distribution throughout the country.
Bastian is launching several conveyor offerings: the Roller Zero Pressure DC Conveyor (RZPDC) ideal for heavier container loads and the Belted Zero Pressure DC Conveyor (BZPDC) suited for conveying smaller loads. These models will be available along with other gravity and curve roller conveyors with plans to launch more equipment in subsequent years.
