Pune is the second largest city in the state of Maharashtra after Mumbai and is the 10th largest city in the world by population.
The city’s proximity to India’s financial capital, Mumbai; the excellent connectivity it affords combined with industry-friendly policies and infrastructure have propelled Pune’s growth as a premier industry hub.
The inception of the Pimpri-Chinchwad Municipal Corporation (PCMC) in the 1960s and the numerous initiatives to foster Industry laid the ground work for steady industrial growth. Measures by the Maharashtra Industrial Development Corporation (MIDC) to acquire land and provide requisite infrastructure continue to stimulate and sustain the development of industry in Pune.
Embassy Industrial Parks are strategically located at Talegaon and Chakan – suburbs of Pune which have evolved into major automobile hubs, hosting the production plants of the Volkwagon Group, Diamler Benz, General Motors and Bajaj Auto. Ranjangaon hosts a gamut of industries including automotive, white goods, jewellery, paints, food products and chemicals.
A vast pool of trained manpower, low cost real estate and proximity to Mumbai and the port have help Pune establish itself as one of the most preferred locations in India for industry.
