Tewkesbury-based hi-tech company Moog has opened a new factory in Bangalore, India.
The Moog Electro-Mechanical (EM) Solutions India Pvt Ltd. factory in Bangalore's Dabaspet Industrial Area will produce servo motorsactuators and other EM products.
The newly opened facility occupies 32,000 sq ft and specialises in the manufacturing and testing of Moog's new large motor solutions for the global market.
This facility will help expand Moog's offering of EM products for Asia Pacific and will provide customers with the system integration of motion control products.

"Products and systems designed, manufactured and tested in this facility serve the servo press, wind turbine pitch control and industrial automation markets in India and around the world.
He added: "Moog supports the 'Make in India' initiative, and this facility will provide additional employment opportunities in India to manufacture EM products to support our motion control business in the coming years."
Moog's presence in India began in 1991 with the opening of a technology centre and servo motor production facility in Bangalore's Electronic City. The Moog EM Solutions factory is Moog's fourth facility in India.
Moog has a base at Ashchurch Industrial Estate in Tewkesbury.
