The IACC is in its 10th year since inception and has been focusing on channeling the right energies to build trade relations the US and India, and strengthen them. It recognizes and felicitates both Indian companies in the US and US companies in India. It also recognizes organizations and individuals who have contributed to the promotion of Indo-US trade, financial excellence, corporate social responsibility, development of human capital and their impact on the respective markets, etc.
Harley Davidson, one of the most recognized names of the Great American Dream, prides itself in its operational prowess. The company believes that every individual working in the company does not see it as just as a part of a job, but as a work of art. Recognition of efforts and dedication of the company employees has helped it win this award.
The company is doing very well these days, especially since the launch of the Street 750 at the Auto Expo in February. Even the Street 500, which is being exported to the rest of the world, is built here. India is only the second country outside the US to have a CKD assembly plant. In fact, India is also the first country outside US to have a manufacturing facility.
