American company Dover Fueling Solutions ("DFS"), a part of Dover, that delivers advanced fuel dispensing equipment, electronic systems and payment, fleet systems, automatic tank gauging and wetstock management, has announced the opening of its manufacturing plant in Navi Mumbai, India. The state-of-the-art facility spans 90,000 sq ft and has the capacity to produce 20,000 fuel dispensers per year.
“We’re confident our new manufacturing facility in Mumbai aptly showcases the steps we have taken to innovate our manufacturing practices, as well as the significant time invested by our global leadership team to understand and address the unique needs of this market,” noted Sankha Bhattacharya, General Manager of DFS and OPW India. “This is an exciting day representing DFS’ strong commitment to deliver quality products to the fuel retail industry not only globally but in this region.

This new production facility will help deliver products manufactured to the same high standards that customers have come to expect from all DFS global manufacturing sites.
“Currently, we have manufacturing facilities in the USA, the UK, the Netherlands, Sweden, France, China, and Brazil and previously had a manufacturing facility for Tokheim in Navi Mumbai.
