Normet’s board of directors approved the investment proposal for a new and expanded multipurpose facility in India. The facility will support equipment manufacturing, service operations, training, and research and development.

Normet said the move supports the company’s strategic-growth and customer-support ambitions. “We anticipate significant demand for our new equipment offering and this new facility will play a key role in fulfilling that demand,” said Kari Hämäläinen, senior vice president, equipment. “India is an optimal location for a manufacturing and R&D operations facility serving global markets.”
