The new Rs 450 crore plant of Kone Elevator India Pvt Ltd was inaugurated by Tamil Nadu Governor Banwarilal Purohit on Tuesday at SIPCOT Industrial Park, Pillaipakkam in Sriperumbudur.
Welcoming the fresh investment Purohit in a lighter vein said in his six decades of public life he would have inaugurated about 2,000 industrial units. “While I have about 60 per cent electoral success, the units I have inaugurated have 100 per cent success rate. I monitor the progress of the units that I inaugurate. Similarly, the new facility of Kone will also be a great success,” Purohit remarked.
According Pekka Haavisto, Minister for Foreign Affairs, Finland, only when the private industrial sector succeeds, the public sector education and healthcare can succeed. Stressing on the importance of managing climate change Haavisto said no country can cite internal conditions and say no to international cooperation. As per Henrik Ehrnrooth, President and CEO of Kone Corporation, the new plant will cater to the growing demand in India and also in neighbouring markets.
