Aiming at transportation-systems annual revenue of US$ 170 million in India by 2020.


Mitsubishi Electric Corporation has announced that its Indian subsidiary Mitsubishi Electric India Pvt. Ltd. (MEI) has opened a factory for transportation-systems business in Bidadi, near Bengaluru, India.

Mitsubishi Electric is targeting transportation-systems annual revenue of US$ 170 million in India by fiscal 2020, in part by strengthening sales and maintenance services for subways and trains to meet the growing global demand for transportation infrastructure.

In the early 1960s, Mitsubishi Electric began providing Indian customers with electrical products for locomotives. Later, the company has expanded into rolling stock equipment business for metro projects since 2000s, and now it provides about 65 percent traction systems of the nation’s metro rail networks.

The factory will assemble electrical propulsion equipment for rolling stock under a plan to expand Mitsubishi Electric’s transportation-systems business in the Indian market. This is Mitsubishi Electric’s third manufacturing facility in India, following plants for automotive equipment and factory automation products in Gurgaon and Pune, respectively.
