The new office in Noida, Delhi comes in response to growing demand for air and gas handling equipment with the nation’s fast-growing economy.

Additionally, Howden’s expertise in hydrogen compression solutions offers support to India’s investment in renewable hydrogen development.

It is hoped the new base will position the company further within its own market, offering access to products for India’s supply chain and facilitating access to expertise and technology.

In July (2022), Howden revealed it has signed a contract to supply its hydrogen compressors to an Indian refinery, as part of an effort to improve the refinery’s efficiency and sustainability.

We are committed to fully localising Howden products and services in India and creating new jobs and careers.

“The Howden team in India led by its Managing Director, Parvesh Mittal, has done an excellent job in managing the business through the pandemic to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our people and continuity of service to our customers in India and internationally.

“This new office in Delhi is another step in expanding our presence in a critical market for Howden and our customers.”
