All Hero production plants will commence production in single shifts for now. The company is trying to increase its international presence…
Like many others, Hero MotoCorp had also halted production across all its plants due to the raging second wave of Coronavirus that has left the country literally gasping for breath!
The company is now gradually opening up its operations and has plans to commence manufacturing in all of them from 24th May. Three of its plants – Gurugram and Daruhera (in Haryana) and Haridwar (in Uttarakhand), have already commenced production in single shifts from 17th May.
The remaining three plants – Neemrana (in Rajasthan), Chittoor (in Andhra Pradesh) and Halol (in Gujarat) will join others and start single shift production from 24th May. Alongside the Global Parts Center (GPC), which is also situated in Neemrana, will also commence operations from this Monday.
Hero specifies that it is monitoring the situation and will move to double shift operations in the days to come. The company also informs that over 90 percent of its employees in the age group 45+ are already vaccinated and efforts are on to inoculate people between 18 to 45 years as quickly as possible.
Another important pointer that the company has mentioned is that it will have an ‘enhanced’ focus on exports. With India under lockdown which will impact the economy big time, Hero is trying to consolidate its Global Business markets to reduce dependence in the domestic market – an art mastered by direct rival Bajaj Auto. The Pune based maker did not stop work since it exports almost half of its produce.
