BKT fires up new factory in India

Trial production has started at BKT’s new, state-of the-art tyre manufacturing site in Waluj, in the Indian state of Maharashtra. The result of a $56 million investment, the plant's annual production capacity is around 30,000 MT of Off-Highway tyres. Around 500 people will work at the site, which will manufacture medium and small diameter tyres designed for machinery operating in the agricultural and industrial industries.

For BKT this new plant is a strategic choice which not only increases its production, but also makes it more efficient. The site, spread over 22 acres, is a new greenfield plant located, at just 5km from BKT’s existing and first ever production facility in Waluj, which was opened in the year 1987. The project focused on the construction of a cutting-edge plant from both structural and mechanical points of view, and on the reorganisation of departments and work flows for maximum efficiency.
