Introduction

Aligned with the ‘Make in India’ philosophy, we manufacture over 90% of our products in-house. We have fully integrated manufacturing set-up across all our plants. During the year, we invested in setting up a new greenfield manufacturing plant spread across 45 acres in the most modern industrial area of South India at Sri City near Chennai. With this, we now have 15 state-of-the-art manufacturing plants spread across 8 locations in India. 

Integrated Manufacturing Operations

Each plant is equipped with high depth of in-house manufacturing with all major components being produced under the same roof. The “Quality first” is in-built in the operations which ensures production of a reliable product with a longer life and consistent performance. In addition, we are consistently investing in upgradation and establishment of the most modern manufacturing setup and optimum level of automation. Across the plants, we have automatic high-tech machines procured from Japan, Europe and other leading manufacturers across the globe. 

With more than 20,000 SKUs across the plants, we believe that Operational Excellence at the factory is paramount, and hence a roadmap has been drawn for implementation and strengthening of various key initiatives. Global benchmarking of manufacturing plants have helped us in continuous upgradation of manufacturing set-up to take it to Industry 4.0 standards. Across the plants, section-by-section analysis is done for promoting digitisation and use of Internet of Things (IoT). 

We have undertaken several steps for enhancing operational efficiency, upgrading machines and processes and making them digitally connected. Our intent is to maximise the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI), Big Data, and Cloud Computing to raise the performance standards and drive the next chapter of Industry 4.0.
