With an aim to tap the growing gas market in the country, Sandvik is planning to invest in a new Hydraulic and Instrumentation tubing factory at Mehsana Mill in Gujarat, western India.

Commenting on the development, Michael Andersson, President of Tube Division, Sandvik, said that “the Mehsana Mill is an important facility in our journey towards increasing our footprint in Asia. As part of our strategy to invest capacity and capability in growth markets, the brand new Hydraulic and Instrumentation tubing factory, as well as the extensively revamped finishing facilities for the heat exchanger flow, will enable us to capture growth opportunities created by the change towards increased natural gas in the energy mix.”

The Mehsana manufacturing facility has been successively expanded and modernized in recent years to increase availability of high quality seamless stainless steel and high alloy tubes as well as to strengthen service in the region, the company said.

The first phase of this growth initiative was completed in 2020 when the company added a new cold finishing tube manufacturing line mainly for heat exchanger tubing and other demanding industrial applications. The investment this time around is divided into two parts and will be fully completed and operational by early 2023.

“For the past few years, we have been focusing on boosting capacity, adding new grades and sizes, and constantly improving to meet the highest global quality standards as well as customer specifications,” says Sharath Satish, President, Business Unit Tube APAC, Sandvik.

He further added “this new investment will provide a significant transformation in our portfolio and improve the utilization and productivity of the existing heat exchanger line. It will also expand the Hydraulic and Instrumentation Tube capacity to meet the growing market for infrastructure around natural gas.”

“We look forward to ramping up on our production to cater to the increasing demand for locally manufactured products in India, while aligning with the Government of India’s “Make in India” and “AtmaNirbharBharat” or “Self-Reliant” program. We also look forward to enabling further export and swifter delivery times to customers across the region,” continues Satish.
