In 2020 Incap decided to expand its production facility in Tumkur, India. In 2021 Incap decided to invest in a third factory in Tumkur. The expansion project is under construction and the opening of the new factory is estimated to take place by the end of 2022.
The Incap India expansion of production facilities in Tumkur has been carried out in line with sustainable building principles, paying special attention to efficient use of energy and water. This entails a new building with pre-engineering structure to cater 1,000 employees, considering proper environmental protection, safety, aesthetics and economic factors.
The building will provide a comfortable working area with sufficient lighting and air ventilation, optimised space utilisation and an easy emergency rescue route plan. Solar panels on the roofwill provide renewable energy to the facility.
In addition to environmentally friendly energy solutions, the project also includes a new wastewater treatment facility. The new facility in the premises will help to purify the water and preserve scarce freshwater resources by using the treated wastewater for other purposes, such as flushing (30%), gardening and landscaping (70%).
