A unit of UAE-based KEF Holdings has launched a $100 million manufacturing park, spanning one million sq ft, to cater to the infrastructure needs in India and GCC markets.
With 10 manufacturing lines featuring the latest technology, KEF Infra One in Krishnagiri, Tamil Nadu in India, promises significant cost and time savings in building hospitals, homes, schools, hotels and specialised infrastructure.
Faizal E Kottikollon, founder and chairman, KEF Holdings said: “Today, India is at the cusp of growth led by innovation. We are witnessing an age where technology is being effectively integrated into infrastructure for the first time. Our aim is to fast forward this progress through radically changing the infrastructure landscape in India. Offsite manufacturing of infrastructure reduces delivery time by up to two-thirds and considerably expedites the construction process.
“At KEF Infra, we challenge conventional building methods and move the industry towards an efficient, and automated platform. The launch of KEF Infra One is an important step towards achieving our vision of pushing forth the next phase of India’s growth through world-class infrastructure. We are proud to introduce this revolutionary concept to the world.”
Sumesh Sachar, CEO, KEF Infra added: “KEF Infra One is designed to deliver high-quality offsite manufacturing solutions for hospitals, schools, hotels and homes, covering the entire spectrum of building requirements – from design to structure, bathroom pods to façades and fit-outs.
“Through this integrated and technologically advanced industrial park, we are aiming to upskill workers and create a sustainable co-dependency between man and machine. This will also bridge the cost, time, resource and quality gaps for our customers – issues that presently constrain the Indian infrastructure sector at large.”
