Delta India Electronics, a leading provider of power and thermal management solutions, announced today, at Elecrama 2016, the expansion of its R&D and manufacturing operations with new facilities in Bangalore and Hosur respectively, in line with its long-term plans to harness the country’s significant long-term growth potential. Delta India plans to develop smart energy management solutions with industry-leading energy efficiency at its new R&D centre which is expected to create up to 500 engineering jobs within the next three years. Within the next 10 years, Delta’s new factory in Hosur will create up to 20,000 jobs for the manufacturing of power electronics, renewable energy and automation solutions.
Mr. James Ng, chairman of Delta Electronics (Thailand), parent company of Delta India, said, “Delta recognizes the potential of India to become a powerhouse in manufacturing and its need for high energy efficiency which is one of Delta’s core competences. We believe our new R&D centre in Bangalore will be instrumental in the creation of innovative and energy-efficient technologies that will support the realization of national initiatives such as ‘Make in India‘ and ‘Digital India‘. Delta was one of the multinational companies invited by the Prime Minister of India, the Honourable Narendra Modi, to the opening event of ‘Digital India‘ in July 2015. We expect the Hosur factory to eventually become Delta’s biggest manufacturing base in India.”

Our track record includes the implementation of a smart monitoring solution for ATMs that provides a safe environment for banking customers across India while protecting the banks’ infrastructure. Also, our PV inverters, featuring the world’s highest energy efficiency of up to 98.7 per cent, support residential, commercial and megawatt-scale projects; our innovative solar trackers increase output by up to 30 per cent versus fixed-mount structures; and our VFD controllers combine with solar power to provide Indian farmers with a clean and energy-saving water pumping solution for irrigation.”
