Carrying our rich legacy of more than 145 years, in India, our journey began in 2008 and since then we’ve been at the forefront of innovations, be it water heaters or water purifiers.
We established an impressive manufacturing facility in June 2010 at Harohalli, Bengaluru and from that time there has been no looking back.
Our Journey in India
A. O. Smith enjoys a rich heritage with a focus on being global leaders in water heaters. Today, we celebrate more than140 years of integrity, innovation and most importantly customer satisfaction.
A. O. Smith became the first U.S. water heater company to enter the Indian market in 2008 and, two years later, opened a world-class manufacturing plant on 20 acres in the KIADB Industrial Area, Harohalli. In 2014, the company added on to the original facility to provide expanded capacity for the manufacture of water purification products, creating a 297,000 square foot operation.
A. O. Smith has led many firsts – world-class innovative features like the Blue Diamond glass lining, glass-coated heating element, energy efficient insulation, and multiple colour options appeal to Indian consumers. The company’s patented Blue Diamond glass lining offers superior corrosion resistance when compared with conventional glass-lined products, stainless steel, or copper-lined tanks, offering protection against premature tank failure caused by the hard water commonly found in India. The high quality glass coated heating element ensures delivery of hot water year after year.
Similarly in water purifiers, we were the first ones to provide instant mineralised hot water purifiers and created a benchmark in the industry. Our patented side stream RO membrane is a novel technology , the double protection with the Silver Charged Membrane Technology( SCMT) prevents any potential secondary microbial contamination post RO purification and the high wattage UV lamps kill microbes very efficiently, so that the water you get is absolutely safe and healthy.
A. O. Smith has a wide footprint across India, serving our consumers seamlessly with a robust sales and customer service organisation in place.
