Gleason Launches Manufacturing Facility in India

The facility will serve aerospace customers, as well as those in automotive, construction, energy and other markets.

Gleason Corp. (Rochester, New York) has broken ground for a new manufacturing facility in the Bengalaru Aerospace Park Industrial Area located in Bangalore, India. Phase 1 is planned for completion in the second half of 2016 and includes 50,000 square feet (4,650 square meters) of space for manufacturing, sales, service and administration. The facility will continue the manufacture of Gleason Genesis gear hobbing machines, gear cutting tools, workholding equipment, and aftermarket products and services, and will provide the space needed for continued expansion for other products.

Gleason has had a longstanding presence in the Indian market, first through representatives and then through Gleason Works (India) Private Ltd., established in 1995. Gleason Works India currently has machine and cutting tool manufacturing operations in Bangalore; a cutting tools service center in Chennai; and sales and service offices in Delhi, Jamshedpur, Mumbai and Pune.
