INDIA – Bühler India has launched its state-of-the-art color sorter manufacturing facility in Bengaluru, India, offering world-class, locally manufactured products to customers in the region, as a part of its “Make in India” initiative.
The optical sorters are validated by Bühler SORTEX experts in the UK and all applicable spare parts, and new services for customers will be hosted in the facility, reducing customer delivery times and increasing supply chain efficiency.
As one of Bühler Group’s global technology centers, Bühler India has the complete infrastructure, advanced technology, R&D (Research & Development), and innovation resources that have resulted in establishing a solid supply chain across the country.
Carmen Schlatter Broger, Head of Business Area Digital Technologies, Bühler India said that India is an important market for color sorting and Buhler starting a local production of its high-tech machines in the region is an important milestone for the company.
The strategic decision to add color sorting equipment is set to lead Bühler on a new journey to create technological innovations and maintain product leadership while providing competitive solutions.
This would enable the grains and food industry in India to have easy access to the latest technologies in color sorting which would directly contribute to food quality and safety.
Addressing the “Make in India” initiative, Prashant Gokhale, Managing Director, Bühler India, said, “Under the ‘Make in India’ initiative it is a proud moment for us to launch an optical color sorter manufactured from our facility in Bengaluru.
This would enable the grains and food industry in India to have easy access to the latest technologies in color sorting which would directly contribute to food quality and safety.”
Divya Purohit, Head of Business Grains & Food, Bühler India, is looking forward to newer associations this strategic move will bring. “The high precision color sorters made in India will help our customers to produce the best quality of rice which will further forge our relationship with them.
We are confident that there will be a strong pull from the market based on the customer feedback on the performance of our color sorter machines.”
In line with the Bühler sustainability goals, the color sorters are manufactured in a renewable energy facility and significantly contribute to optimizing the carbon footprint.
