NEW DELHI: US-based commercial plumbing systems maker Sloan is looking to expand operations in India as it sees business opportunities in the government’s push for smart cities and airport privatisation.

The company is also exploring tie-ups with luxury real estate developers in the country.

“In India, we have been there for three years, testing our market,” said Parthiv Amin, chief sales and marketing officer at Sloan in India. “We are putting a greenfield facility in Gurgaon, expanding our offices, hiring a design team.”

Amin said the manufacturing unit, experience centre and office will be functional in a couple of months.

Sloan has presence in more than 71 countries.

In India, where it operates through a wholly-owned subsidiary, the company plans to launch products that will help meet the water crisis staring several states.

Amin did not comment on the investment the company intends to make in India but said it will start manufacturing in the country and expand the facilities.

“We made a product for India as an emerging market since the need of the market is different,” he said.

Sloan has a network of over 60 partners pan India, which includes airports, real estate developers and smart cities.

It is currently operating from a 20,000 sq ft space in a building in Udyog Vihar in Gurgaon.

“We already have some tie-ups with developers in Bangalore, and also with tech companies, hotels and a holiday group,” said Anup Kumar Tripathi, country head at Sloan.

“Smart cities has not emerged the way it was announced but we are working with couple of smart cities,” he said. “In Vijaywada, we are working with the local government. Sustainability is key when we are working on a smart city. Besides, we have been able to get some business from existing infrastructure.”

Sloan is also working at six airports to finalise the specifications on the products at airport restroom.
