To achieve the competitive edge in terms of supply chain management efficiency, Lapp India has set up a new warehouse recently in the western state of Maharashtra in India. Located strategically in Bhiwandi, Thane, the Warehouse which is a part of a shared facility will cater to Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Chattisgarh and Gujarat, among other regions in the country. The newly set-up warehouse is strategically located in a region that offers exemption from the local taxes otherwise applicable for the entry of any goods delivered into the area. This tax advantage helps Lapp India cater in a cost effective manner to existing and potential customers across neighbouring cities such as Pune, Nashik, Baroda and Ahmedabad. Additionally, with proximity to the Mumbai Port, the new warehouse helps Lapp India significantly in reducing the duration of any import delivery as compared to the Chennai Port which was the primary import location earlier. While this is a key benefit for the logistics team of Lapp India, the larger gain here would be for the customers as they will in turn derive the benefit of faster product delivery for orders placed. Further, with the implementation of SAP, the new warehouse will also enable customers to have access to the stock status on a real-time basis which will help them take relevant purchase-related business decisions.

Further, in addition to the well-established single core power chain cable ÖLFLEX® FD 90 Lapp presents the Basic-Line equivalent ÖLFLEX® CHAIN 809 SC – for light and ordinary duty in power chain applications. The new single core is also suitable for torsion loads, which typically occur in wind turbine generators. The ÖLFLEX® CHAIN 809 SC is a single core power chain cable with both insulation and outer jacket in PVC; it is UV resistant, flame retardant and oil resistant.

Additionally, we have introduced the EPIC® SOLAR PL008 and EPIC® SOLAR AL008 to our wide range of solutions for solar industry.
