Halla Visteon begins production at Sanand plant, Gujarat, India

Halla Visteon Climate Control Corp. (HVCC), a full-line supplier of automotive thermal management solutions, has announced the start of production at its new facility in Sanand, in the state of Gujarat, India.

The Gujarat facility will support the company's growing
business with global vehicle manufacturers and cater to the requirements of OEMs in the state of Gujarat and western India. The facility has approximately 8,890 sq m (95,691 sq ft) of manufacturing space and the capacity to produce 2-million units consisting of heat exchangers; heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) modules; and air-conditioning lines. By incorporating its standardised global manufacturing and business processes, HVCC has the ability to double its capacity at this facility based on business needs.

"India is one of the fastest growing economies in the world and is poised to emerge as one of the top passenger vehicle markets in near future, and we want to be prepared for the tremendous growth opportunity this market offers," said Y.H. Park, President and CEO, HVCC. "This new plant in Gujarat expands our manufacturing footprint to encompass all of the major automotive hubs in India and allows HVCC to bring world-class thermal management technology to vehicle manufacturers in India."

"With the Indian economy growing at a fast rate and car penetration remaining comparatively low, passenger vehicle sales are expected to gain momentum, and HVCC is well-positioned to provide the Indian market with innovative thermal solutions to address consumer needs," Park further added.
