Bangalore, 11th November 2023 – In an anticipated milestone following their May 2023 announcement, Bastian Solutions is proud to announce the official opening of its conveyor manufacturing plant, signifying the next expansion of its technology portfolio in India. This achievement marks a strategic leap for the company, extending over 70 years of proven excellence from the United States to the growing technological and manufacturing hub of India.
This pivotal moment signifies Bastian’s unwavering commitment to providing customers a single source to integrate all their supply chain needs, while also providing them the quality and dedication inherent in the Toyota legacy. Mr. Hitoshi Matsuoka, President and CEO of Toyota Advanced Logistics North America, the parent company of Bastian Solutions, was in attendance at the grand opening providing his support of this important step.
Earlier this month, while visiting the new site, Mr. Aaron Jones, President & CEO of Bastian Solutions, expressed gratitude to the India team for their hard work in establishing the facility. He also expressed his appreciation to Mr. Hitoshi for his attendance and stated, “This facility embodies our dedication to innovation, quality and sustainable growth. With Bastian’s history dating back to 1952 in the United States, we have remained pioneers in the material handling industry. We are thrilled that the opening of this facility marks the extension of our legacy into India, while also supporting the country in its “Make In India” campaign.”
The India manufacturing site will initially roll out 6 conveyor models; three in its zero-pressure accumulation line and three in its live roller transport conveyor line. The conveyors originating from India will also be available in the Southeast Asian and Middle Eastern markets, in addition to India. Recognizing the unique requirements of various industries, Bastian’s expanded conveyor technology portfolio now offers a comprehensive range of solutions, catering to sectors such as retail, e-commerce, manufacturing, and more.
As one of the oldest material handling system integrators in India, Bastian’s expansion marks a new chapter, strengthening our resolve to bring innovative world-class solutions to the supply chain industry.
