Siemens Industry Sector unveiled the ‘Siemens Productivity Tour’, a nation-wide, multi-city mobile road show aimed at empowering small and medium manufacturing enterprises across India with technologies for productivity and efficiency. Targeted primarily at automotive, medical, aerospace, power, F&B, packaging, textile, printing and pharmaceutical industries, this road show will cover 204 locations in 86 cities across India. Through this ‘Productivity tour’, Siemens aims to raise awareness among the SMEs about the definite competitive advantage that can be gained by adopting innovative technologies and solutions
According to FICCI, Indian manufacturing segment houses over 26 million MSME units that employ around 59 million people. However today, the Indian MSME sector contributes only 8% to the GDP, as compared to that of China, where the contribu-tion is almost 60% of the GDP.
Despite its enormous size, the sector is yet to realize its true potential. One of the reasons is the lack of technology penetration beyond industrial hubs in and around large cities. As the economy is going through testing times, it is becoming increa-singly difficult to sustain the high growth rates without embracing cutting edge tech-nology that can optimize energy efficiency and productivity.
Commenting on this launch, Mr. Bhaskar Mandal, Executive Vice President and Sector Cluster Lead - Industry Sector, Siemens South Asia, said, “It is imperative for manufacturers, especially the SME sector to adopt the latest technologies that ena-ble them to improve productivity, enhance flexibility, optimize costs and increase profit margins .Proven technologies from Siemens can help these industries accele-rate their growth and thus gain a competitive edge globally.”
On display inside the trailer will be innovative products ranging from variable fre-quency drives, servo motors, servo drives, motion controllers, CNCs and engineer-ing framework for automation and drive technology.
