“India is the world’s second largest market”, explains CEO Silvio Napoli. “Our new supply
chain unit in Pune represents a key platform for our growth strategy and will enable us to
continue offering competitive products to our Indian customers with even shorter delivery
times.”

The new facility, which employs more than 150 people, is based on the latest environmentally
friendly technology and has been awarded the IGBC (LEED India) Gold rating.

The next step in the Pune Campus will be the opening of a new escalator factory and a global
R&D Competence Center including a 70-meter-tall test tower. The buildup of the Pune
Campus is part of Schindler’s global growth strategy, which covers a complete revamp of the
Group’s global supply chain including state-of-the-art factories in China, the USA and
Slovakia.
