A plug-and-play-model has been introduced for the first time on the industrial landscape of Gujarat, where the state government has allotted a large chunk of land to a foreign firm within the newly created Japanese industrial park in Ahmedabad district, to build all the basic infrastructure needed for attracting medium-sized Japanese players into the zone.

Approximately 200,000 square meters within the industrial park at Mandal, about 90 kilometers from Ahmedabad city — has been allotted to Japanese firm, Toyota Tsusho.

“This firm will provide small-to-medium-sized Japanese companies with plug-and-play rental factories where the companies from Japan can start their operations by merely bringing their own equipment and plugging it into the space allotted to them. This is a new model in Gujarat, but is very common in countries like Japan,” said Manoj Aggarwal, vice-chairman and MD of Gujarat Industrial Development Corporation (GIDC) that is overlooking the development of the Japanese industrial park.

Tsusho, a general trading arm of the Toyota Group promotes development of new businesses, will “create and maintain” basic infrastructure for 15-odd Japanese firms within the park promoted by Japan’s Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, Japan External Trade Organisation and the Gujarat government.
