Client: FORCE MTU

Force MTU Power Systems is a joint venture between Force Motors and Rolls-Royce Power Systems AG. The former is a homegrown Indian automotive brand, while the latter is a German company that designs and manufactures industrial engines and parts. Force MTU combines the expertise of both to produce top-of-the-line engines for multiple applications. Notably for the Series 1600 engines for power generation and rail underfloor applications.

Force MTU's Requirement

Force MTU wanted to relocate their manufacturing operations from Germany to India. They aimed for the Chakan MIDC area near Pune as it was and still is an in-demand hub for various industries. Force MTU needed the assistance of an experienced and reliable developer-partner to undertake and complete such a project on time and with high- quality standards. In short, they wanted a modern and advanced specification plug-and-play facility.

The IndoSpace Advantage

Force MTU conducted thorough research about the industrial real estate developers in and around the Chakan region. They sought information about those who had a proven track record of project delivery and technical capabilities. Post the assessment, IndoSpace was on board as Force MTU's preferred developer-partner. We acquired complete knowledge about Force MTU's requirements and suggested IndoSpace Industrial Park Chakan I Phase III as the new destination for their relocation to India.
