Beumer Group is expanding in India with an INR 2 billion investment in a new, state-of-the-art production city in Reliance MET City/Jhajjar.

Laying of the foundation stone took place on June 27, 2024, with representatives of Beumer Group and Reliance MET City attending the ceremony.

The new production site will further strengthen Beumer’s global factory footprint as well as boosting the continued success of its Beumer India subsidiary. With an area of more than 10 acres, the new plant will be placed at a highly strategic location, with Reliance MET City offering exemplary infrastructure and support. The material handling solutions manufacturer will be the first German company to set up production in the development zone. Construction work will commence this summer, and the opening is scheduled for September 2025.

Beumer Group has been active in India since 2003. Initially catering to the cement industry exclusively, Beumer India now offers solutions for the airport industry, minerals and mining, automated warehouses and distribution centers in the retail industry, as well as in the areas of e-commerce and courier, express, and parcel. In addition, Beumer India is also providing engineering support to the group’s global network.

On the product side, the company has been a trailblazer of new bulk as well as discrete material handling technologies to India, including high-capacity, high-speed automatic loop sortation for passenger baggage, fully automated truck loading for cement bags, high-efficiency bulk material transport, and curved belt and pipe conveyors.

“Our new production site at Reliance MET City offers a convenient ease of business and synergy in approaching infrastructure and facilities with a vision towards sustainable development. Setting up a manufacturing unit in the context is truly ‘plug and play’, with Reliance staying true to its goal of developing a ‘Model Economic Town,'” said Nitin Vyas, Cluster Asia CEO, Beumer Group.

Over the years, Beumer strengthened its position in India through various steps, such as diversifying to all business segments as global operations, acquisition of ENEXCO Technologies India, FAM India and the establishment of a modern manufacturing unit at Naurangpur, Haryana.
