Energy management and automation major Schneider Electric plans to invest Rs 32 billion by 2026 to make India its manufacturing hub for domestic sales and exports.

Under the plan, Schneider Electric on Thursday (21) inaugurated a facility in Bengaluru with Rs 1 billion investment to produce cooling solutions for data centres.

This is Schneider’s second chiller solutions factory across the world. It had set up the first such facility in Italy.

On the sidelines of the event, Schneider Electric India President-Greater India Zone and MD & CEO Deepak Sharma said the company would set up manufacturing facilities in Maharashtra, Karnataka, Gujarat, Telangana, Tamil Nadu, West Bengal, Uttarakhand and Odisha states for its various products and solutions.

The France-based company currently has 30 factories across India.
