Whitford, maker of fluoropolymer coatings, has continued to grow with its recently opened factory in Bangalore, one of India’s fastest-growing and most dynamic cities.

On hand at the opening ceremonies were many customers, suppliers, government officials and members of Whitford senior management from around the world, along with the local team of 20 Whitford employees.

After opening speeches, Whitford celebrated in classic Indian tradition with the “Lighting The Lamp” ceremony, which symbolizes a prosperous beginning.

The new India facility encompasses more than 20,000 square feet, with 15,000 dedicated to production and warehousing and the remainder divided up into office, laboratory and maintenance space. The property also has a large amount of space for future development.

Manufacturing will concentrate primarily on coatings for consumer products—cookware, bakeware, etc.—along with a few specialized industrial applications. Sales are projected to double in three years.

“Strengthening our presence in this remarkably dynamic market is key to our future in Asia," said Whitford president Dave Willis. "We now have complete manufacturing facilities in Singapore, China and India.”
