"With its population of 1.3 billion and huge pent-up demand for
infrastructure projects, India is an important part of our growth
strategy. Gas distribution is certainly a growth sector. Plans are
currently underway to make piped gas available to more than 200
cities," said Pietro Lori, Head of GF Piping Systems.
The opening of the factory in India is a further milestone for GF in expanding its presence in Asia. GF Piping Systems has had a sales presence on the subcontinent for about 20 years, and the new factory will enable it to serve the market even more effectively.
