Whale Enterprise PVT continues to expand its product development and engineering support capability, with the opening of a new Technical Engineering facility in Coimbatore, India.

The new facility, located in an additional 100m2 (1,075 ft2) space at Whale Enterprise’s headquarters in Coimbatore in the state of Tamilnadu, will house the company’s growing Technical Engineering department, as it continues to bring European standards to product development and engineering support in India.

There is now a dedicated team of eight engineers working out of the new offices, providing technical expertise on research & development and new vehicle production projects, as well as supporting the growing number of Whale products already used in water, sewage, refuse and recycling Industries.

The new Technical Engineering facility is equipped with the latest design software to ensure that the company, which is a wholly owned subsidiary of Whale Tankers – the largest manufacturer of vacuum tankers and jetting equipment in Europe – continues to set the benchmark in design and engineering standards.

The growing Whale product range in India includes the CombiWhale, the SuperSucker, the highly engineered and specialised KaiserWhale as well as the Whale LiteJet range of light weight jetters. These high quality, highly efficient and productive machines are increasingly deployed in both the private and municipal sectors.

Whale Tankers Managing Director, Mr. Mark Warmington, officially opened the new facility during a recent visit to Coimbatore. Speaking at the opening, he said; “This latest investment highlights the importance that we place on both supporting our existing product range well as developing new,

market-leading products specifically for the needs of our Indian customers. By doing so, we can make sure that we remain at the cutting edge both in terms of the dedicated components that go into our products and the complete vehicles that we build here.”

Whale Enterprise Business Development Manager, Anees Ahamed, added; “I am confident that our customers will both appreciate and benefit from the enhanced engineering support that this new facility will allow us to deliver. ”

“Quality and engineering excellence are the hallmark of Whale products around the world” said Whale Enterprise Director Mr. Shajahan Hussain. “The further expansion of our engineering capability here in Coimbatore underlines our mission to continue to deliver best practice for our growing customer base, both in India and beyond.”
