Leading global provider of mission-critical air and gas handling products, technologies and services, Howden, has opened a new office in Noida, Delhi, India.
The new office comes in response to the growth in demand for air and gas handling equipment within India’s fast-growing economy. The move further positions Howden within its own market, offering access to products for India’s high-quality supply chain and facilitating access to expertise and technology across the Howden global business.
The business enables customers’ vital processes which advance a more sustainable world, notably in sectors including: power generation, cement, steel, traction, wastewater treatment, oil and gas, and ventilation for metro and mining. Its leadership position in compression solutions for hydrogen means Howden is supporting India’s investment in renewable hydrogen development.
Howden’s Executive Director & President of EMENA region, Fred Hearle, who opened the new office, commented: “This move is of great importance to Howden’s business in India. Having a presence in Delhi brings our expertise and technology closer to our customers, as well as enabling further investment in our facilities and the training and development of our team. We are committed to fully localising Howden products and services in India and creating new jobs and careers.”
“The Howden team in India led by its Managing Director, Parvesh Mittal, has done an excellent job in managing the business through the pandemic to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our people and continuity of service to our customers in India and internationally. This new office in Delhi is another step in expanding our presence in a critical market for Howden and our customers.”
The investment follows over 40 years of operations in India, where the business has factories in Chennai and Hosur, an aftermarket team in Pune, and a joint venture (JV) with India’s leading infrastructure company Larsen & Toubro in Faridabad. As a business with a strong reputation for client service, project execution and important aftermarket services, the office brings many of Howden’s operations closer to its client base, offering full service support.
Howden focuses on helping customers increase the energy efficiency and effectiveness of their air and gas handling processes enabling them to make sustainable improvements in their environmental impact. Howden designs, manufactures and supplies products, solutions and services to customers around the world across highly diversified end markets and geographies.
The business recently announced its target to be carbon Net Zero by 2035 through the purchase of renewable energy and carbon-free energy; efficiency gains from energy conservation measures; and by renewable energy projects at its manufacturing facilities. The largest impact the business will have on global sustainability will be through its partnership with customers to supply equipment that will make a major impact on their carbon emissions and sustainability.
