Global Signal Transmission & Management Giant Belden Inc. Inaugurates Manufacturing Unit in Pune; Targets New Markets

Belden Inc., a global leader in signal transmission and security solutions for mission-critical application in enterprise and industrial markets, today formally opened its state-of-the-art manufacturing facility at Chakan near Pune. Spread over 24,000 square meters, the total investment in the facility is INR 250 crore or $35 Million USD. The facility has been established with support from the Mega Project program of the Government of India and is credited with being the first truly ‘One Belden’ factory, with capabilities to serve multiple customer markets and applications of the Belden group of brands. The global leader aims to provide customers in the region, who are investing in increasingly sophisticated automation, with a single-point solution for mission-critical signal transmission and management requirements.

Ashish Chand, Managing Director of Asia Pacific Belden Inc., accompanied by senior officials of the company, formally inaugurated the facility at Chakan. Prominent dignitaries from Maharashtra and several of Belden’s customers, partners and suppliers attended the inaugural function. On the occasion, Chand said, “With this Mega Project, Belden seeks to address the fast evolving needs of Indian customers for mission critical applications in the transportation, energy, smart buildings, process automation, factory automation and broadcast markets.” Key products that will be manufactured in the new plant include low voltage cables for high-end applications, connectivity and assemblies for data transmission, and ethernet switches, routers and firewalls for industrial and building automation. The facility is equipped with state-of-the-art technology that will also allow us to serve other export geographies including the US, Middle East, South East Asia and China.

“Belden has been proudly present in India since 2003, and based on the growth of the market, the company decided in early 2017 to set up a manufacturing footprint here,” said Chand. Investment to set up a world-class manufacturing and assembly unit will occur in two phases. The first phase, which included a $20 million USD investment, was completed in September 2018. Work on the second phase will commence soon, with an additional $15 million USD investment. The project, when at its full capacity in 2019, will provide direct and indirect employment opportunities to more than 300 people.

Globally, Belden is at the forefront of developing advanced technology for very high bandwidth transmission and management in mission-critical applications by investing in R&D and advanced manufacturing capabilities. The company is committed to following this path in India. Going forward, Belden will enhance engineering and design capabilities in Pune to leverage local talent towards developing technology for global use.

Belden serves two primary end-markets globally:

Enterprise – focused on transmitting and securing data, sound and video in complex enterprise and media networks covering smart buildings, final mile broadband and live media production;

Industrial – focused on transmitting and securing data, sound and video in harsh industrial environments covering factory automation, process automation, energy, utilities and transportation.
