Volvo Penta, a marine and industrial power system manufacturer, today said it would beginproduction of five and eight litre industrial engines in the country from next year.
The engines would be made for local customers at the VE Powertrain (VEPT) plant in Pithampura near Indore and a new line would be added at the plant exclusively for VolvoPenta engines, the company officials said. “The global strategy that we have is to supply at the short time with a good cost or price level depending upon from where you see it, which we do now in more or less all parts of the world. India is the new place where we are comingup,” Volvo Penta Senior Vice President Global Operations andQuality Peter Hertinge told reporters here. He said “we will start the production of 5 and 8 litre engines locally here in India.”
