Panasonic inaugurate its first eco ideas Factory in India- Technopark
Panasonic India launched its first model eco ideas Factory in India, Technopark in Jhajjar, Haryana. This new state-of-the-art facility serves as a milestone for Panasonic to showcase its best practices in sustainable manufacturing. Spread across 76 acres, it was opened with an investment of USD 200 million (from 2010 to 2015). Panasonic Technopark will house facilities that can manufacture an estimated 1,000,000 sets of air conditioners, 400,000 sets of washing machines and 25,000 sets of welding and cutting machines per annum. This manufacturing facility is designed with various green features, such as 28.29 KWp solar modules installation at the rooftop of the office, entrance canopy and car park to reduce carbon dioxide emissions, and a 100% water recycling system for a sustainable water provision.
Focusing on making India a manufacturing hub, the Technopark plans to export products from India to other markets, starting with the Middle East and Africa region. True to Panasonic’s commitment to be an Indian company in India, instead of just a Japanese company operating in India, products manufactured are specially conceptualized and customized for the Indian consumers keeping the local needs and conditions in mind. The Panasonic Cube AC, an epitome of product innovation, is meticulously tailored to suit the Indian climatic conditions, and space restrictions factoring the rise in apartment lifestyle.
India is considered one of the fastest growing economies in the world. With outstanding market potential, it is evident the attention the country is commanding on the world stage is growing. The inauguration of the ‘eco ideas’ Factory will help strengthen Panasonic’s brand presence here.
