“Hyosung’s Power System business pioneered the HV & UHV GIS substation. During the time when GIS (Gas Insulated Switchgear) technology was introduced in India, Hyosung was one of the companies which contributed to stabilize the Indian Power system. We supplied more than 700 numbers of GIS as one after one the leading GIS manufactures to many Indian utilities such as PGCIL and NTPC and established India’s first 800 kV GIS substation at Pune, Maharashtra for PGCIL. Hyosung has made decisions to localize in India to contribute to sustainable growth of Indian Power system in line with Hyosung’s Motto “Always by your side” and “Make in India”, slogan of the Indian Government.
After our investment decision in India, our team visited many Indian states to search for a suitable land to setup a manufacturing plant but after meeting with KHED CITY officials, we dropped all other options with an zeroed in on KHED CITY. Because KHED CITY has so many advantages to set up new factory like clear land title, valid environment clearance, quick set up, quality infrastructure, good multi modal connectivity and strong support, therefore we finalised that KHEDCITY would be the best location to setup our manufacturing plant. We are targeting to make our plant operational and start production from June 2016 this year and till now the progress is excellent . All this has been possible with the excellent support of KHED CITY Management. We are sure that KHED CITY will cooperate till the completion of construction and factory operation. From Hyosung side we would like to ensure that Hyosung T&D India will keep contributing to the stability and reliability of power systems for India.
This is the best time to be in India, even better to “Make In India, Make In Maharashtra, Make In KHED CITY”.

“After sensing the surge in demand for its hot stamping parts in India, AutoGen is all ready to build a manufacturing facility at Khed City, Pune. We are glad to be a part of a futuristic industrial setup like Khed City”, said an official from AutoGen.
From the year 2018, AutoGen plans to deliver the parts to (M&M) from its local plant in India. The reason AutoGen is grabbing attention can be attributed to the fact that it would become the first localized automotive component supplier for M&M from Khed City, Pune.”
“It has been a friutful journey with Khed City since 2012, from the date of engagement to set up a plant in DTA area of Khed City. We inaugurated the factory in November 2013 when there was been only one neighbour contrary. Today the area looks completely occupied.
There were been many situations when, being one of the first industries to set up in that area we had to face challenges. However, the response from Khed City management was prompt. In every difficult situation, they were supportive and got engaged to resolve issues. The area is clean, pollution-free and weather is excellent. People around are much better than other industrial locations and local civic authority is highly positive. As a Managing Director of Lenze India, I enjoy working here with local people and Khed City Management, and fulfilling business along with social responsibility.
Infrastructure within Khed City is praiseworthy with very efficient maintenance of the same is also good. There an excellent connectivity to both Mumbai Airport and Sea Port. Besides these, there are futher development schemes planned by Khed City and we hope with those being implemented Khed City will by far be one of the best location to build manufacturing units in India.”

“Khed City has good access to the market. Pune is a hub of IT and automobile industry. Manufacturing industries that use steel as raw material are growing in and around Pune. Khed City is situated near such steel material customer regions. The place also has good access to other market areas in Maharashtra state. In India, the process of acquiring land for factory is cumbersome. But, acquiring land in Khed City was relatively simpler, which is another reason for choosing this place.
Roads, street lights and security in the Khed City are well-maintained. I understand that labor-management relations are good in and around Pune as well as Khed”.
