Chemical Industry Digest - - News & Views -

Saft, the world’s lead­ing de­signer and man­u­fac­turer of ad­vanced tech­nol­ogy bat­ter­ies for in­dus­try for a cen­tury, re­newed its fo­cus on In­dia on the eve of its cen­ten­nial cel­e­bra­tions. Saft has now com­pleted the pur­chase of re­main­ing 49% of shares from its JV part­ner AMCO (which was a joint ven­ture) to es­tab­lish Saft In­dia to re­in­force its part­ner­ship with In­dian in­dus­tries. Saft now looks for­ward to strengthen its po­si­tion in In­dia by fo­cus­ing on rail, tele­com, and in­fra­struc­ture.

Saft has been present in In­dia from early 1900s through Stone, UK, which helped to build In­dian Rail­way op­er­a­tions. Since then, Saft has been pow­er­ing In­dia’s crit­i­cal space mis­sions by ISRO, safe trans­porta­tion through met­ros in Delhi, Ut­tar Prad­hesh, Cal­cutta, Ban­ga­lore and Chen­nai, as well as build­ing pres­ence in tele­com and standby power for in­dus­try.

When asked Franck Cec­chi, Ex­ec­u­tive Vice Pres­i­dent, In­dus­trial Standby Divi­sion Chair­man of the Board of Saft In­dia, said- “AtSaft, we are ex­cep­tion­ally proud of our his­tory. When we look at the past 100 years, we have al­ways been at the fore­front of cre­at­ing the fu­ture tech­nolo­gies. Our bat­ter­ies and sys­tems have helped in­dus­tries around the world with crit­i­cal safety ap­pli­ca­tions, back-up power and propul­sion. We are in­creas­ing our fo­cus on In­dia now as Saft In­dia to sup­port the In­dian gov­ern­ment, the Make in In­dia pro­gram and In­dian in­dus­tries. We look for­ward to ac­cel­er­at­ing our growth here,”.
