Ingersoll Rand India Private Limited was founded in Kolkata in 1921, one of the first American investments in India. In 1958 the company opened a branch office in Ahmedabad and in 1963 the head office was shifted to Mumbai. Ingersoll Rand established its first manufacturing plant in Naroda, Ahmedabad in 1965 and in 1977 became a public limited company.
With a major emphasis on ‘Innovation’ to drive ‘Productivity’, the company has had many firsts to its credit. Ingersoll Rand is a pioneer in bringing centrifugal technology into India and started manufacturing CENTACS (Centrifugal Compressors) way back in 1989 when centrifugal technology was hardly known and accepted. In recent times, with the focus shifting to energy efficient compressor technology, Ingersoll Rand launched the award-winning ‘Nirvana’ energy saving rotary compressors. The company continues to bring latest technologies to India and launch localized products keeping in mind the requirements of the Indian market. Not just path-breaking technologies and products, Ingersoll Rand’s key strength is its world class service that it provides to its customers across the country.
Today, Ingersoll-Rand (India) Limited is based out of 22 locations in the country and is listed on the National Stock Exchange of India and the Bombay Stock Exchange.
Ingersoll-Rand (India) Limited has recently rolled out an aggressive plan for growth in India. The foundation of this growth will be customer driven innovation, a robust infrastructure to support after sales services, a significant investment in the facilities to transform them into world class manufacturing operations and a ‘Customer First’ and ‘Solutionizing’ mindset.
