Air-conditioning and commercial refrigeration major Blue Star Limited plans to build a greenfield plant in Jammu first and later take up another plant in Sri City in Andhra Pradesh, to meet the company’s growing requirement and add new line of products.
B Thiagarajan, Executive Director and President, Blue Star, said: “The setting up of these two manufacturing units will take up the total manufacturing plants under the company fold to seven. In fact, we would be reverting to seven plants which we once had. “However, two of the older plants were closed. These two units will make us future ready and also enable us to take up some backward integration — that is manufacture some of the products that go into air-conditioning products.”
