Touted to be the first-of-its-kind infrastructure of such a scale in the APAC region the first phase of the new plant will be operationalized by Q1 FY ‘24 while the second phase by Q2 of FY ‘24 and the third and final phase during FY ’25. As part of the expansion plan, BFW has collaborated with Adroitec India to propagate these solutions across the country. 

Ravi Raghavan, MD, BFW India said “BFW has firmed up its roadmap to be a global player by 2025 and the vision boasts a large and integrated manufacturing facility with a provision for critical sub-suppliers to be located under one roof for efficient logistics. Today I am happy to share that our 3x scale-up and aligned product/process technology roadmap through our initiative ‘LEAP – BFW’ is well poised to support the current and future needs of our global clients.
