Spread over two acres in the industrial estate, Maraimalai Nagar, the new railway facility will supply high quality stainless steel components with ‘just-in-time’ delivery to the Integral Coach Factory (ICF), Chennai for production of railway coaches.
The facility will produce railway coach sub-assemblies like side-wall, roof arch, trough floor and retention tanks for ICF, Chennai. These components will be used in LHB (Linke Hofmann Busch) model coaches and other variants.
