Yamaha’s Kancheepuram facility in Tamil Nadu has gone functional after about 8 weeks of inoperation. Rest of the plants will open soon…
With relaxations coming in, we are probably at the last leg of the lockdown. The lockdown 4.0 which was extended till 31st May 2020, has eased on the curbs that were enforced earlier.
Auto manufacturers are well on their way to commence and increase production at their facilities. Apart from Hero, Honda, Bajaj and others, Yamaha has also announced restarting of its Kancheepuram factory in Tamil Nadu. The company informs that it has received permissions from the related authorities and it has ensured that all-round approach which includes social distancing, hygiene maintenance, health monitoring, etc, will be followed.
The company informs that it has not called those employees who can work from home. Employees whose physical presence is essential are reporting to office. In addition, Yamaha will also carry out frequent sanitization of workstations and is promoting virtual meetings wherever possible. The canteens will also have staggered timings for employees so that crowding can be contained.
Yamaha says that almost 50 percent of its dealerships are now operational and it is providing them whatever support it can to help them function properly.
The two closed factories in Surajpur (Uttar Pradesh) and Faridabad (Haryana) and remaining dealerships will be opened in the days to come.
With the lockdown expected to end, Yamaha will also officially announce the launch of the 2020 FZ25 and FZS20.
