VEKA to step up India operations
VEKA India, a subsidiary of VEKA AG – the world’s second largest manufacturers of windows and doors systems recently marked ten successful years of operations in India. To commemorate the occasion, Andreas Hartleif, group CEO and MD, VEKA AG visited its India facility located in Navi Mumbai and inaugurated its newly built state-of-the-art showroom and application centre. The company also announced its plans of expanding its operations and making strategic inroads into the Indian markets including residential projects, hotels, hospitals and other commercial establishments.
“The market size of PVC window profiles in India is about 40,000 tons per annum. In Germany, VEKA surpasses the figure in less than a month. We believe there is room for growth in India and we are here to capitalise on it,” said Hartleif.
Currently the door and window profiles in India are dominated by aluminium and wood. Also the fabrication is very primitive. World over, uPVC profile is the default choice. This not only provides greater durability, but also offers stunning looks and ultimate energy efficiency by entirely keeping out noise, dust, heat or cold. uPVC profiles also are more cost effective than aluminium and wood when compared apple to apple.
