Major constructor Kajima Corp.’s Indian subsidiary has landed an order from a Ford Motor Co. Indian unit to build an auto factory in the city of Sanand in Gujarat Province.

The factory will be constructed on a 1.86-sq.-km site and be built by 2014, while its production capacity in the first year of operation is projected at around 240,000 units, Kajima said Thursday.

Kajima did not disclose the value of the order, but the total investment in the project is likely to come to around ¥77 billion, including production facilities.
