Lindström India launches India’s first Cleanroom Unit in Pune
Lindström India, India’s only organised workwear service company, has just launched its first Cleanroom Unit in India. Lindström India, a 100% subsidiary of Finland’s Lindström Oy, launched its second line of business, called Cleanroom Workwear Services, in India to ensure the highest quality hygiene, safe and reliable workwear, which is the most critical to customers in the pharmaceutical, food and electronics industry. Lindström’s Cleanroom Workwear Services ensures hygienic production facilities by providing garments serviced in cleanroom laundries, which prevent contaminations during the laundering process, thereby ensuring complete safety of the products being manufactured.
The cleanroom unit, spread over 50.000 square feet in total, has the capacity to service 400.000 uniforms per month. The staff in the unit has received special training from experts in Finland and operates under a classified cleanroom environment to guarantee a sufficient supply of particle-free and contamination-free garments to its customers.
Anupam Chakrabarty, Senior VP-Sales & Markets, Lindström Global and Managing Director, Lindström India, said “In highly controlled production conditions, people are the most common sources of contamination. The cleanroom unit ensures that the workwear being serviced is free of dust, viable organisms or particles, thereby allowing the customer to run their business smoothly and safely. We’re delighted to launch our first cleanroom unit for the Serum Institute of India, a leader and innovator in the Indian pharmaceutical industry that focuses heavily on the quality standards for its consumers.”
Inaugurating the new unit in Chakan in Pune, Dr. Suresh Jadhav, Executive Director, Serum Institute of India Pvt. Ltd. said, “We’re very excited about the launch of Lindström’s first cleanroom unit for us. We have been working with Lindström for the last two years on this project and see huge value in the professional workwear services they offer. The Cleanroom Unit is a huge step in our mission of conforming to the highest industry standards and our commitment to quality.”
Lindström has cleanroom operations in Finland, Russia and China within the 24 countries it operates in, India now becoming the 4th Lindström country to have cleanroom services. Its cleanroom services for workwear operate according to ISO 14644 and adhere to GMP procedures.
