Bengaluru: Schneider Electric, a global leader in digital transformation of energy management and automation, has inaugurated a new cooling factory in Bangalore. This factory will focus on developing innovative cooling solutions to meet the growing exponential demand for data center ecosystem in the country. The new factory, which covers 6.5 acre, has been built with an investment of Rs 100 Crore ( 10Mn Euro). 85 per cent of the products manufactured in this factory will be exported, significantly catering to the Datacenter segment, as well as to buildings, industry, and infrastructure.
