Sundaram-Clayton Ltd, a TVS Group company, has set up new foundry at an investment of Rs 150 crore in Oragadam near here.
The plant, which would primarily serve auto major Hyundai Motor India, would also meet the growing demand for automotive products, a company statement said.
Sundaram-Clayton Ltd, Joint Managing Director Lakshmi Venu said "at SCL we are committed to work closely with customer as possible.
This facility reinforces our drive to serve our customers by cutting down supply times because of proximity to their factories."
The plant would have a capacity of 8,000 tonnes and would produce machine castings ranging from 1.9 kg to 7.2 kg.
The capacity expansion was part of the SCL's strategy to partner in the light-weight of customers' vehicles, both with research and development and also in supply chain solutions, the statement added.
