Sandvik to start H&I tubing factory in Gujarat
Sandvik, a developer and producer of advanced stainless steels, special alloys, titanium, and other high-performance materials, will invest in a new Hydraulic and Instrumentation (H&I) tubing factory at its Mehsana Mill in Gujarat.
Sandvik Mehsana is a high-tech tube mill situated in Gujarat and produces advanced corrosion-resistant tube, pipe and hollows for heat exchangers and process equipment across a wide range of industries.
According to a company news release, the new factory will take Sandvik’s production to the next level and meet the burgeoning demand for locally manufactured products in India. The Mehsana manufacturing facility has been successively expanded and modernised in recent years to increase the availability of high quality seamless stainless steel and high alloy tubes as well as to strengthen service in the region.
The first phase of this growth initiative was completed in 2020 when Sandvik added a new cold finishing tube manufacturing line for heat exchanger tubing and other demanding industrial applications. The investment this time around is divided into two parts and will be fully completed and operational by early 2023.
According to the company, this is an initiative to boost the government’s Atmanirbhar (self-reliance) mission.
