Espelkamp, July 12, 2018 ---The HARTING Technology Group continues to grow and expand its capacity: the production site in Chennai, India, which was officially opened in February 2017, has now been expanded.

HARTING sees good growth potential in the country, especially in the important markets of mechanical and plant engineering, power generation and transportation. The production facility has now been doubled in size by some 1,200 square meters, bringing it to a total of 2,400 square meters. Additional hires are planned for the current financial year, with the number of employees slated to be increased from 40 to 60."We’re pleased with this continued good demand for HARTING products. This expansion strengthens our global HARTING production network," says Andreas Conrad, Operations Director.

India was the partner country of the HANNOVER MESSE trade show in 2015. Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi joined with German Chancellor Angela Merkel in visiting the HARTING booth on the first day of the fair at the time.
