AkzoNobel opens €20 million decorative paints plant in Gwalior, Madhya Pradesh India

GWALIOR, INDIA: AkzoNobel has strengthened its manufacturing footprint in India by opening a new €20 million decorative paints plant in Gwalior, Madhya Pradesh, which will have an annual capacity of 55 million liters.

The eco-efficient Greenfield facility, AkzoNobel’s sixth factory in India, will supply a range of decorative paints and create improved distribution channels for the popular Dulux brand. The new site will also help speed up transportation times and reduce the cost of logistics.

The plant will have special sustainability features, rainwater harvesting and energy efficient pumping systems, while 20 per cent of the roofing area allows natural daylight to flood in, reducing the need for artificial lighting.

“The Gwalior plant will provide cost-effective access to key markets in the northern and central areas of India. This will greatly reinforce our strategy of expanding Dulux distribution, as well as improving customer service in these high growth regions,” said Amit Jain, Managing Director, AkzoNobel India.
