INOX India has thorough production facilities across four major locations in India. Besides, it manages part manufacturing and service operations from Brazil and a stock and sale facility in the Netherlands.

INOX India is part of the Inox Group but does not own the ‘Inox’ trademark. The name ‘Inox’ is used under a licensing agreement with the group’s promoters.

The company’s product offerings are divided into key areas: Industrial gases, liquefied natural gas (LNG), and cryo-scientific applications. 

As of March 2024, Industrial gases account for 63% of its business, involving the storage and transport of substances like oxygen, nitrogen, and hydrogen. LNG contributes 28% to the business. The division focuses on equipment for storage, distribution, and transportation of LNG, supporting cleaner energy use. The cryo-scientific sector that accounts for 7% provides advanced solutions and turnkey services for scientific and industrial research involving cryogenic technology.

INOX India is a spearhead promoting clean energy, especially in LNG and hydrogen solutions, echoing its commitment to sustainable practices.
