H.B. Fuller Co. has begun construction of a $12 million manufacturing facility to support the expansion of business into India. The plant will be located near the city of Pune, approximately 100 km south of Mumbai, and is expected to be operational by August 2011.
“India is one of the largest countries in the world, with one of the fastest growing economies,” said Steve Kenny, senior vice president, EIMEA (Europe, India, Middle East and Africa). “As such, it represents a huge market for H.B. Fuller and our customers. This expansion reflects our commitment to the market and to our global customers, many of whom have an active presence in India. This investment is another key component of our five-year strategic plan and is the latest in a series of bold moves designed to drive growth at H.B. Fuller while strengthening our competitive presence."
