Schuler captures Indian market with Yadon
by Hans Diederichs
Schuler’s affiliate Yadon is a success story also in India: In the last two years, more than 80 presses from the Chinese manufacturer have been sold in the country. About half of them with a press force ranging from 60 to 1,000 metric tons have already been installed at various metal forming companies. The complete product portfolio will be on exhibit at IMTEX Forming 2020 in Bangalore from January 23 to 28 (stand G82, hall 27).
“Our customers are convinced not only by the attractive price-performance ratio of Yadon's presses, but also by Schuler's closely-knit service network”, says Managing Director Nitin Kulkarni. “This means that our employees are always close to our customers and can provide quick assistance for high plant productivity.”
Yadon has also signed the largest contract with a foreign country in India: An Indian company bought presses with a total value of almost five million euros. „Thanks to the support of Schuler India and the Yadon sales managers, who are Indian nationals, we were able to get this order with an very important and well known tier-1 supplier to the Indian automotive industry“, adds Yadon Vice General Manager Liang Cheng.
Schuler acquired a majority shareholding in Yadon four years ago. At its three facilities in China, the manufacturer produces C-frame, blanking and tie rod presses, among others, for the medium and lower price segments. The portfolio also includes high speed and hot forging presses. Yadon’s biggest machine, a 2.500 ton transfer press, is based on Schuler technology.
